Worst Credit Union Ever

Worst financial decision I made in 2013 was doing business with Schools Federal Credit Union.

Customer service was terrible (with the exception of one individual). They do everything different than any other bank or credit union and it all moves at glacial speed.

But the worst is the way they advertise a high interest rate for savings and then reduce it by more than 90% retroactively based on a footnote on their rate page. In other words, they have your money for almost three months and then decide not to pay you the interest they advertised. Classic bait and switch. Avoid this company like the plague!
