Born in the U.S.A.!. . .FREE USAA Key Chain. . .

FREE USAA Key Chain


You have to be a logged into your USAA account (which means you have to have one).

I just logged in tonight and the offer popped up. Two different types: round or square.

It is supposed to be a pretty "heavy in the hand" keychain not a cheap plastic one. . .or so I hear. . .

The keychain will have USAA's address and your USAA # printed on it.


There are few feelings worse than losing your keys. With your new USAA key chain you can make that feeling a bit more bearable. If your keys are found, they can be dropped in any mailbox for return to USAA. Then we'll return the keys to you at no cost. Your privacy is safe ... and so are your keys. This peace of mind is part of your USAA membership.

Of course, this key chain is free. A gift that says "thank you" for being a member of USAA.










If you don't see the offer when you log in, you can use this link but you still have to be logged into your account for the link to work, so log in first then click the link:

It started as banking/investing/insurance for the armed forces only and is now open to the public (although you still have to be in the military/veteran to have access to some of the insurances. . .). . .but anyone can open a bank account. . .

They have a great reputation for customer service (and in the case of insurance. . .reliability and reasonable rates). . .

Love USAA.

And their online banking is excellent - pay back every ATM charge automatically, up to $15 a month.

Yup, got introduced to it in the late 80's. Great resource. Back then, not only was membership limited to members of the uniformed services, but they had to be commissioned officers or officer candidates from what I recall. To me, they seem to be one of the best run non-profit's.

Open banking is NOT anymore -- unless it recently changed.

I have my insurance through them (flawless) but they've tightened the rules so much that last time I checked (6 months ago?) to get a friend into their banking ops, they closed down except to San Antonio residents and the usual LIVING, former military.

If they opened up for finances, get in. They are excellent. If you are active or retired military, you can pass it on to all living kids for the AUTO insurance. Can't get that any other way unless you marry into it.

If you don't think you need USAA for yourself???? GET IT FOR YOUR KIDS.

They give rebates every year from auto insurance. I've seen rebates here, for $250, because of savings, checking, even after they had to pay out for an accident, when all they were paid for the year was a few thousand.

Amazing company.

edit - retired military is not enough. It has to be active/reserve. I tried to get in via my father's service (he passed in 1981) and after that, the man my mother married years later who is a retired WW2 vet, but that did NOT qualify him.

I'm amazed at the number of people who served who were not aware of this all these years.

USAA is great. I've been a member since I first joined the Navy, in 1992. The benefits are terrific, and I now have just about all of my monetary affairs through them (Checking, Savings, IRA, mutual funds, stocks, insurance). I hope they don't go bankrupt. smiling smiley The little things are nice: I always get through to an agent or rep within a minute or so on the phone, the online services are outstanding (I can deposit a check from a scanned image of the check, instantly), and as mentioned above, they pay you back for ATM fees.

I used to think that it was a downside to not have any local branches, but it's never been a problem, and now that I can do virtually everything online, it doesn't matter at all. If you have the opportunity to join, do it!

p.s. The company almost always sends you a check during the year, too, when they figure out how much money they have left over. Part of the money goes into a "subscriber's savings account," and the other part is just a check for you to do whatever you'd like with. I think my check averages about $60 a year, which is always a nice little surprise when it arrives.

. . .yup. . .i didn't realize that they have restricted banking back to only military.

I just checked and it has indeed been restricted.


Glad I was able to get in when I did. . .
