I've been a SAFE credit union member since 1986. In that time they have repeatedly inspired me to take my serious banking business elsewhere - and by repeatedly inspired I mean horrific failures that cost me huge money and inconvenience and all I got was lame excuses and useless apologies. I use them for a few things that are handy; cheap wire transfers, free coin counter, backup ATM card. I won't trust them with more than the cost of a tank of gas ever again.
I've stayed with SAFE because they had a coin machine in the lobby that would automatically deposit the coins to your checking or savings. On the downside, they wouldn't accept a roll of coins at the tellers.
Starting January 1st, they will start charging a 3% fee to accept coins deposited to your account. They are actually already charging the fee at the coin machine but the teller will refund it until Jan 1st.
