New Website to Launch Mid-October
Grand Savings Bank is launching a new website to better serve our customers. It’s still Grand
Savings Bank, just with a new, fresh design. Our new website uses a responsive design, meaning
it will perfectly fit your desktop, tablet or mobile phone. It’s easy to read and easy to navigate.
Let’s highlight the main features of the new website.
On the home page, you will log into your online banking just like you always have. Simply put
in your username, hit the green go button and enter your password. This is exactly the same as
the previous website.
Check out the Apply section if
you’d like to securely apply
online for a credit card, deposit
account or a loan. Applying
online will expedite the account
opening and loan process.
Customers may easily enroll
online for E-Statements,
Guardian Text Alerts and
Account Balance Text Alerts.
Londagin’s Letter
With school back in session and football
season underway, there’s lots of excitement
in the crisp, fall air. At Grand Savings Bank
we are very excited about the real estate
market in Northeast Oklahoma and
Northwest Arkansas. We’re seeing a high
demand for homes and commercial real
estate in the region.
Bookmarked pages on the old
site will expire on the new site. You will need to create new bookmarked pages on
the new website. Also, your computer’s security or firewalls might block the new site
so please allow access.
The GSB2GO App will look the same on your phone. This new look will only be seen when
you access our website, not the App.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you can’t find something. We hope you enjoy the new look
and convenience of our website!
If you are looking to purchase some property

Stop by or call on of our locations today and
ask about our home loan program. We enjoy
saying “YES” to home seekers.

Security Corner
Mobile Security Tips from Jenny Brodrick, Accredited ACH Professional
My cell phone...I love my cell phone! I can do
anything from making purchases to paying bills.
I can do the same thing from my PC, but it’s so
much easier to do from the palm of my hand. I
would NEVER think of using my PC for these
things without having protective software
installed – so why would I do it on my cell phone
without ensuring the same protection? Believe it
or not, most consumers use their cell phones the
same way I do and do not have any anti-virus or
anti-malware protection on their cellular devices.
There are several free options for consumers.
Some popular choices include Lookout,
SecurityMetrics and Sophos.
Do your homework. Different platforms for various operating systems are available. Other
great resources include contacting your PC based security software company. Many of them
have apps available for your mobile device. Also, contact your mobile phone carrier – they also
have options for you.
Now that you are armed with your mobile device security, proceed with your favorite mobile
Apps. Don’t forget that Grand Savings Bank offers a variety of tools on our GSB2GO App to
make your life easier, including Extreme Mobile Deposit – a fast, secure way to deposit your
check. Have you tried Guardian Mobile Text Alerts? This is a feature that offers instant fraud
protection in the palm of your hand! Go to grandsavingsbank.com, or contact a customer
service representative, for more information on any of our services.

program. The group is comprised of 16 students from Grove, Jay, Colcord, Fairland and
Kansas. The purpose is to further education of students interested in finance and business,
understand the functions of a bank, develop essential building blocks related to earning,
spending, saving and investing money, introduce potential career paths and outline steps
necessary to achieve those goals.

Cable’s Column
If you haven’t noticed yet, we have services
galore and many of them are free for
customers. It’s also easier to sign-up with
our new website that will be ready for
customers in mid-October. For example,
you can save a trip to the bank and sign up
for E-Statements, Guardian Text Alerts
and Account Balance Text Alerts all online.
The Personal Financial Manager on our
online banking is one of my favorite!
Signing into my GSB online banking and
being able to track my expenses on a daily
and monthly basis is amazing. It’s a breeze
to set-up and easy to understand. Plus,
accessing other third party accounts at one
click of the mouse is so convenient. All you
have to do to get started is call one of our
locations to sign-up. Another free service
to make life easier for our customers!
Check out more of our free services on the
last page of the newsletter.

Vice Chairman
