Some of the reasons a person would use a bank instead of a credit union include: 1. There is no credit union within a reasonable distance, making a nearby bank more convenient. 2. The individual is not eligible for credit union membership. 3. The individual is not aware of the advantages of credit union membership over a conventional bank. 4. Personal preference.j3h.
