Altura CU members Helen Carrera and Teresa Flores each won $500 for using their Altura Visa Debit Cards to make purchases—a promotion created to get the word out about the convenience of the credit union's Visa Debit Card. Altura CU also gave out five Mini iPads in April as part of its "Mini Ways to Win" checking account promotional campaign. Additionally, Altura CU's auto-locating and buying service subsidiary, Auto Expert, reported a 30 percent increase in car sales for 2012 over 2011, as well as 2012 net income that rose 148 percent over 2011. Altura CU also set up a fund to help a local family deal with medical expenses for their daughter who was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash in late April in Riverside, CA.
