September 5, 2017 - PITTSFIELD - Greylock Federal Credit Union has announced the introduction of its new ChaChing app. The new free app works on Greylock Members’ Smartphones alerting them to a variety of perks, benefits, and discounts available at a range of merchants around Berkshire County. Using the GPS on Member’s phones, ChaChing sends mobile alerts off¬ering instant discounts whenever they are near participating merchants.

“Greylock is excited about the new ChaChing app and the value it will bring our Members,” said John L. Bissell, Greylock President & CEO. “We are partnering with local and national retailers throughout Berkshire County that will be participating in the program. Greylock is happy to help the local economy by driving traffic to local businesses while giving our Members opportunities for discounts and benefits through ChaChing.”

Here’s an example of how ChaChing works - if a Greylock Member with the app on their phone walks by a participating coffee shop, they might get a pop up notice on their phone saying they can save on their next coffee. Or, if they are near a participating restaurant, they may get a pop up message offering a free dessert with a dinner purchase. There are all kinds of ways Greylock Members can save with ChaChing. They simply present the offer on their phone and pay with their Greylock credit or debit card to get the deal. It’s like having a personal shopper looking out for the best deals everywhere Greylock members go without having to keep track of paper coupons.

It’s easy to get the new app if you are a Greylock Member. Simply download ChaChing from either the Apple App Store for your iPhone or the Google Play Store for Android devices. To learn more about ChaChing, or how to become a Greylock Member, go to www.greylock.org or call (413) 236-4000.
