A Postive Banking Experience

I had checking and savings accounts with the Amarillo Education Credit Union for over ten years. I was always extremely pleased with their service. I was very young when I first started with them, and their rules concerning banking errors like overdrafting were extremely fair. They offer all the services you can expect at a national bank, and their extended services are top notch. They only accept educators and their families.
