Get to know big member savings

Unlike corporate banks that give their profits to stockholders, Advantis is a not-for-profit financial co-op. So we pay our profits back to members in the form of a million little things like better rates, lower fees, and more free services.

And every year, all those little things add up to big savings for our members—really big. Check out our Member Savings page to see for yourself.

Then join us at Advantis and discover your own big savings.



We’re #1, but don’t take our word for it

In Forbes’ 4th annual list of America’s Best Credit Unions in Each State, Advantis was ranked #1 in the state of Oregon.* Join us, and discover why Forbes and our members say we’re the best credit union.
