Aloha Pacific Federal Credit Union (APFCU) held a special grand opening event on November 2 at its new branch in the Pu‘unene Shopping Center in Kahului, 70 Ho‘okele Street, Suite 1210. This branch replaces the temporary branch that opened at 137 Kalepa Place in February and is conveniently located near Target and the Ulta Beauty store.

More than 250 Maui residents attended the celebration, which featured giveaways and entertainment that included taiko drumming, live music and dance performances. Attendees also had the chance to win prizes and learn more about APFCU’s new offerings to Maui residents.

 “We’re excited to be opening this permanent branch on Maui to offer folks new services and programs to enhance the way they can manage their finances,” said Vince Otsuka, APFCU president and CEO. “This day is also very special for me personally as I have family here on the island.”

Some may be surprised to learn that APFCU has been serving Maui residents for more than 20 years through its partnership with Maui credit unions.

“When we were looking to enhance the credit union experience for our members two decades ago, APFCU was right by our side to ensure technology such as automated teller machines (ATMs), and most recently, interactive teller machines (ITMs), were available at our branch,” said Clayton Fuchigami, Maui FCU’s president and CEO. “That’s the spirit of the credit union in the sense that we don’t shy away from collaborating if the outcome can really help and benefit our members.” He added, “Hawaii credit unions like to say we are ‘a better value for a better way of life.’ We welcome Aloha Pacific Federal Credit Union to our community.”

In celebration of its grand opening, APFCU now offers a suite of new checking accounts with rewarding features. Members can choose from:

  • Aloha Advantage Rate checking: 2.75% APY (Annual Percentage Yield)on balances up to $10,000;
  • Aloha Cash Back checking: 3% cash back on debit card purchases, or;
  • Aloha Points checking: 1 reward point for every $2 signature-based debitcard purchase, redeemable for gift cards, travel, and more.

All three checking accounts are accompanied by other valuable benefits, including access to a network of 30,000 ATMs in Hawaii and across the mainland, and ATM surcharge rebates up to $20 monthly if requirements are met.
