Bellco Is Okay With Me.

I have been a Bellco Customer since, at least, 1996.  I have trouble logging into their online banking, my wife never does, so I guess this is my issue.  When I call their customer service department they are helpful and my account is quickly unlocked.

I have never had issues with their fees.  I have had a couple auto loans with them.  All of my checking, savings, and direct deposit is with them.

I don't like there rates for PLOCs compared to other banks.  I just read reviews for those same banks and they were so bad I thought I would check out the reviews for Bellco.

Since There were no reviews I thought I would add my .02 to say...

No real troubles with Bellco on my end.

Love This Bank!

I have banked with Bellco for over 12 years and couldn't complain. They have good rates on their loans and credit cards. They recently increased some of their fees, but they are still way less than other banks.
