What is a credit union? That answer won a Jeopardy! contestant $1,000 on Wednesday's edition of the game show. CUNA and the credit union difference were mentioned in the form of a question in the "Saving Up" category.
"CUNA, their national association, reminds us that they give back their profits to customers, like in higher interest," host Alex Trebek asked the contestants.
Stephanie Mitchell buzzed in with the correct answer: "What is a credit union?"
Mitchell, a language arts teacher from Effingham, Ill., was on the show for this year's Teacher Week.
