Great Credit Union, Everything I Want In A Bank Without Any Of The Irritation Or Frustration Of Big Banks

I love Heritage Family as a bank. Good interest rates and interest on checking accounts, easy online banking system,  and as a shared branch of the credit union network I can access my accounts in-person at all sorts of other credit unions around the country, as well as surcharge-free ATMs. It's about as convenient as having a branch availablein anywhere you may go domestically, but not always as nearby as a big bank in a big city. HFCU charges $1 for most non-HFCU ATM transactions (in addition to any ATM's own surcharge), which is a slight irritant, but Chase and other banks often do $2. Far more so than competitors, HFCU is honest, straightforward, actually looking out for you as a member and your interests individually, and legitimately fair in their policies. In a decade of banking with them, I've never once felt as if I was getting the short end of some deal, say being charged a fee for something silly or trivial. They are the friendly neighborhood dream bank in It's a Wonderful Life. They handle me well, they handle my money well, and they make it easy and convenient for me to do what I need with it when and where I want to.


They don't always have the most advanced conveniences, like depositing a check from a picture message. For me, those advancements are great, but not worth the tradeoff in service and bank culture. I love it and highly recommend it.
