Fort Branch is Finally Open!

On Wednesday, July 9th, HiTel FCU opened a new Fort Branch inside of the Downtown Walmart on Fort Street Mall.  Shoppers were eager to see the new two story retail store, and flooded the isles – customers were literally shoulder to shoulder.

A few HiTel FCU employees were set up right on the mall with both 93.9 the Jamz and Island 98.5 giving away a lot of cool things.  The credit union brought their wheel and winners who landed on the one lucky spot received a prize of their choice – a glass cup with a mini Yoko or mini Kalea doll, a shopping cart full of goodies or a HiTel FCU money bag.  There was also a entry box to win a iPad mini and Ni’ihau shell necklaces.

It was only one entry per person, however, anyone who opened a checking account with $100 would get three entries or $500 would get 20 entries.  Winners will be announced all throughout the month of August!

On Thursday July 10th, Pastor John from Hope Chapel blessed our branch to protect and bring good fortune to both the branch and staff.  Fort Branch is our fourth Walmart Branch here on Oahu. Our employees are excited in servicing all your money needs!

Kunia & Mililani Branch Grand Openings

Labor Day Weekend was an especially thrilling one for HiTel FCU, as the Credit Union celebrated the opening of its TWO newest branches in grand style. The grand opening of the Kunia Branch (located in the Kunia Walmart) took place on Saturday, August 31, and the fun and excitement moved to the Mililani Branch (located in the Mililani Walmart) on Sunday, September 1.

Popular radio personalities Maleko from Star 101.9 and Krey-Z Oshiro of Island 98.5 were on hand to oversee the festivities, give away prizes and keep the crowd entertained during the live broadcasts from both events.

Attendees took their turns spinning the lucky slot machine to try to win not one, but TWO brand new cars— a Cadillac ATS and a Cadillac XTS!

The famous HiTel FCU prize wheel was spinning fast and furious, and many attendees won fabulous prizes such as flashlights, keychains, lunch bags and more!

The grand opening events also marked the first appearance of the HiTel Hurricane, a money-grabbing machine which was stocked with cash prizes, as well as chances to win iPads, iPad Mini’s and Kindle Fire HD tablets.

Those who opened new accounts at either event were also entered into the iPad and Kindle drawings, and received special gifts.

HiTel FCU’s cuddly and adorable mascots—Yoko and Kalea—also made an appearance at both events, posing for pictures with the keiki and their families.

Mahalo to Clear Channel Hawaii and Honolulu Cadillac, and also to everyone who took the time to drop by and take part in the
celebrations. The Credit Union’s staff looks forward to serving you at the newest locations!

Congratulations to our lucky iPad/Kindle winners:
