Know where your credit stands

Knowing your credit score is essential in managing finances.  It's also a way of monitoring your personal credit security.

Without a cost to you, we can analyze your credit report for fraud detection and any score enhancement opportunities.  We'll arm you with the information you need to improve your score and how to even lower loan payments.

See a member service representative at any of our branches.  Please bring a valid picture ID and allow 30 minutes. You can call ahead for an appointment at any branch by calling 520-794-8341.

Keep valuables secure in a Hughes safe deposit box

When you need a truly safe, private place to keep valuables, such as jewelry, stocks, bonds, marriage or birth certificates and other essential documents, consider getting a safe deposit box at one of our locations. We offer this service at our Wetmore, Hermans Road, Speedway, Pantano and Thornydale branches. See our Locations, Hours and ATMs.

Your items will be kept in a maximum-security vault with complete privacy.  Only the key holder has access to the box, with proper signature.  Total contents are protected by insurance up to $1,000.  Cash, currency and coins are not included.

The National Credit Union Administration does not insure safe deposit boxes.

Key deposit


Boxes are subject to availability.  Prices subject to change upon notification to members.

  • Pay for your box by having the fee automatically deducted from your savings or checking account.  Box rentals are paid annually.
  • There is a $20 key deposit at the time of rental.  Your deposit will be refunded upon return of both keys when closing your box.
  • The loss of both keys will result in an additional $130 fee to have the box drilled open.  You may want to keep the keys in separate locations for safekeeping.
  • Current tax laws may allow safe deposit box rent to be tax deductible if the contents are income-producing (for example, U.S. savings bonds) and you itemize your deductions.  Consult a tax advisor regarding your qualified deductions.

Gift cards: better than cash VisaGiftCards

When you're thinking about giving someone cash for a special occasion, consider a Hughes gift card instead.  We have several designs to choose from and a card can be replaced if lost or stolen.  They can used anywhere Visa® is accepted.

Choose whatever amount you want to give.  Gift cards are available at all branches and can be loaded in amounts from $20 to $500 for a fee of $3.95 per card.

Lock in security and peace of mind Logo_CardLock

Our innovative CardLock™ service puts the power to prevent credit and debit card fraud in your hands.  With one quick phone call to the automated system—or a visit to the secure website —you can lock or unlock purchase authorizations on your credit or debit card.

CardLock™ works hand-in-hand with advanced fraud protection systems already in place, but gives you a greater role in the fight against fraud.  You can use the service when traveling or to further secure an online purchase.  No matter how you choose to use CardLock™, if anyone tries to make an unauthorized purchase while your card is locked, you'll be notified by phone of the transaction attempt.

To register your Hughes Visa® Debit card or Hughes Visa® Credit card, call toll-free at 877-CULOCK1 (877-285-6251).

How CardLock works

Here are just a few examples of the ways CardLock™ can fight against fraud:

  • After paying for a restaurant meal or any purchase, you can lock the card to prevent fraudulent usage.  Next time you need to use the card, you can unlock it in less than 30 seconds.

  • When traveling, be safe and lock the card when not in use.

  • If you've made an online purchase with your card and feel nervous about Internet security, take a few moments to lock the card.
