Credit unions offer the best rates but figuring out which ones you can use is nearly impossible. CUCollaborate’s new product, JoinCU, makes it easy to find, join, and borrow from credit unions.


  • Prequalifies consumers’ eligibility for every U.S. credit union
  • Increases credit unions’ online application conversion rate
  • Establishes referral network of and between credit unions

Why it’s great
CUCollaborate works with both credit unions and companies that connect consumers with products offered by credit unions (financial products, insurance, etc.). JoinCU can be implemented as an API.
