Summit Credit Union Review

We have been a member of Summit Credit Union in Sun Prairie, WI for several years now and they have never failed to bend over backward to meet our every need.  We used to belong to another bank when we first moved here and were so disappointed in their service that we actively sought out a different financial institution.  SCU is always willing to sit down with you and go over anything you want to look at.  When my mother moved up here, we suggested SCU to her and she has had great success with them.  She sometimes gets confused and doesn't understand things.  They will call her to discuss transactions or she will go there and they will sit down and go over her accounts with her.  That is SO awesome.  When we started our own business, they were wonderful about helping us figure out a plan of "attack" and helping us to figure out how to get the money we needed.  I can't say enough good things about them. 

Big town credit union small town feel

I feel like a real person at Summit and not based by the amount in my account. I like the fee free ATM and I love the Pay if Forward idea. The Credit Union is involved in the community and I appreciate that. I can't see myself changing to another financial institution and for the first time I actually enjoy going to a financial institution.
