New Discounts:

As Valdosta’s local credit union for the last 63 years, Southeastern would love the opportunity to assist any of the VSU nation that has accounts at Kinetic’s Valdosta branch.

We would be happy to offer a cash incentive ($100) for any Kinetic member who moves their VSU direct deposit to our credit union.  Additionally, we would also be happy to offer a cash incentive ($100) to any Kinetic member who refinances their loan with Southeastern.
