Hauppauge, New York (PRWEB) February 08, 2013

Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), in partnership with Generations Gold, Inc., provides travel and other discount services on an exclusive basis directly to members through its Benefits Plus program. Benefits Plus offers three tiers of savings for TFCU account holders – savings at a local level, a national level, plus a variety of free services that are included in the membership.

For a small monthly fee of $4.95, TFCU account holders can benefit and enjoy significant savings all year long. “Depending on a family’s spending habits, a typical family can save hundreds of dollars a year when they take advantage of the program’s travel, hotel, discount dining, prescription drug, and even pet insurance discounts,” said Robert G. Allen, CEO of Teachers Federal Credit Union.

For Valentine’s Day, Benefits Plus members are offered discounted gift cards to popular retail outlets such as Barnes & Noble, Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works. Or, they can choose a special Dinner and a Movie package with steep discounts to their favorite local restaurants.

Local merchants can also sign up for the program, free of charge, by simply agreeing to offer an exclusive discount to those who are members of Benefits Plus. In turn, TFCU will promote these local businesses to its member base and the general public through, what amounts to, free advertising and on-going marketing.

“Every dollar spent really makes a difference when it goes into the local economy. By offering Benefits Plus Membership, TFCU is helping its members save money while helping local cash registers ring. TFCU is dedicated to supporting the local Long Island Economy and its residents,” said Robert G. Allen.

For more information about Benefits Plus membership, please call 631-698-7000, extension 6780.
