TechCU gave me great rates for a CPO.. whats the easiest way to join...

Didn't realize TechCU had strict requirements on how to join for membership. Does anyone have any suggestion?

For reference, this is their requirement:

  • Anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz or San Francisco Counties
  • Employees of [email protected] companies – search for your employer
  • Family members of current Tech CU members
  • Members of our many affiliated organizations including: the Financial Fitness Association, the Northern California Human Resource Association (NCHRA), or the San Jose State University Alumni Association (SJSUAA)
  • Employees and employers of public or private technology-based entities with a location in California
I am in california, but I do not fall into any of these categories. Did i just take a hit in my credit score for nothing? xD Can anyone recommend an easier to enter Credit Union that could give me just as good of a rate? 3.5% or less with great credit.

Just checked:
  • Rates as low as 3.24% for Tesla models. Alliant offers Tesla loans in all states except the following: AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, HI, IL, MD, MA, MN, MO, NV, NJ, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, TN, VA, WA
how weird. I'm in California though.
This makes no sense unless they just changed their rules. I have an Alliant loan, and it was the easiest process ever.

Are you talking about this Alliant?
