I jumped on the reward checking offer. Found out *after* application that the rate had dropped from 3.25% to 3.00%, although I have various written material with both the original and reduced rate.
Online app was smooth until it terminated with a membership application which I was prompted to print and send by mail. Umm, no. So I walked it into a branch, waited in line for one of two tellers then was directed to "sign in" and wait for someone else. Ultimately the form I took the time to complete and print was simply shredded and a new one was completed. What a waste of my time.
I was handed several printed items with my social security number, totally unncessarily. No one seemed to comprehend how this might possibly be a bad idea.
Learned that funds availability for check deposits on a new account is...*nine* business days! Should have gone through this motion sooner. ACH deposits are processed faster but I don't have a way to do one of those instantly.
Logged into the online banking system, was greeted with a form asking for much of the same info I had already provided once, twice, or thrice. Played along. Rejected based on "error" (no idea what kind of error) on zip code and email address.
I called "member services." The rep was cheerful but lacked any apparent empowerment or desire to actually do anything at all. Had me clear out zip code and re-enter, after which that was accepted; I had to specify an email address without a + character for that to be accepted (figured that out myself). I routinely use a feature of gmail such that gmail users can append a suffix to an email address and track who sells them out. (email@example.com). '+' is totally legal in an email address; their validation is broken.
Apparently "yeah I know there have been issues with the web site, teehee" is supposed to be some kind of satisfactory resolution.
Bottom line: lots of hassle just to get started, would expect more security awareness from a financial institution, but better than average rate.
Neighborhood Credit Union is one of the best financial institutions I have ever done business with. I used to bank at Bank of America, but I was sick and tired of how I was being treated-- awful. The reason I was initially attracted to Neighborhood Credit Union was because they are the OLDEST credit union in the Dallas Metroplex- that spoke stability to me.
Since I joined Neighborhood Credit Union in 2006, their staff has always been friendly and attentive to my needs. My checking account (Kasasa Cash) with them is pretty awesome too. It's a completely free account and pays me 3.25% APY - they are actually paying me to do business with them. LOVE THEM!
