Moving My Business Account

I have a personal account and a business account with FCU, but I'm seriously considering moving my business account. I thought credit unions were supposed to help their customers more than banks, but I haven't found that to be the case with this credit union. I filed bankruptcy and it settled over 18 months ago, and my credit score is now over 700. However, FCU won't give me a credit card or a car loan since "we won't be the first organization to extend credit after a BK". WTH? Yeah, thanks for the "help for our members". Also, I recently bought QuickBooks to manage my business's finances. However, you can't use the online banking function of QB with any FCU accounts! Again, WTH? Even after I talked to a customer service rep and told her I'm considering moving my business account, she said that IT would have to buy a copy of QB to see if they could get it to work!!!! OMG!!! AND it would take a week to do this since they're so busy! Seriously???? This is supposed to be a professional organization???? BTW, I got a car loan through a DIFFERENT credit union. Buh-bye, FCU!
