Get to know us. We’re a better way to bank.

We offer all the services of a big bank (and so much more), without the whole “bank” part.

Advantis is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Unlike corporate banks that pay their profits to stockholders, we pay our profits back to our members in the form of better rates, lower fees, and more free services. That adds up to more back in your pocket, every day.

You can join Advantis if you meet ANY of the three criteria below:

  • You live or work in the Portland metro area – or in any of these 24 western Oregon counties: Benton, Clackamas, Clatsop, Columbia, Coos, Crook, Curry, Deschutes, Douglas, Hood River, Jackson, Jefferson, Josephine, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Tillamook, Wasco, Washington, and Yamhill.

What’s the catch? Is there a fee?

There’s no catch – and no membership fee. It’s just as easy to join Advantis as opening an account at any other bank, except there are so many more benefits!

Let’s tackle this next part head on.

Six common myths about credit unions:
number 1 icon It’s hard to join / I can’t join.
False. It’s so incredibly easy to join Advantis. Just open any account with us – and poof – you’re a member. There’s no fee, no hoops, no catch. You can join!
number 4 icon Not as secure.
Also not true. We make protecting our members’ accounts and information top priority with industry standard online banking security standards. 
number 2 icon Not enough branches or ATMs.
Not true. Advantis offers you 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide through the CO-OP network, plus 24/7 online and mobile banking.

number 5 icon My funds are not insured.
Big myth. Your funds are federally insured by the NCUA (National Credit Union Association) up to $250,000 per account; this is equal to FDIC insurance at a big bank.
number 3 icon Not full service.
Nope, the opposite. We offer all the services of a bank, plus much more. Checking accounts, high-yield savings, credit cards, mortgages, and more.

Number 6 icon I don’t get the “membership” thing.
It’s the best part! Instead of being a bank “customer” (just a number), you can be a member-owner of our cooperative. Which means, it’s all about you! Learn about the cooperative difference
