While the U of Iowa Credit Union currently has some of the best rates available for their Rewards Checking account, beware of all of the hoops they make you jump through to get that rate. One of the many stipulations is using the account's debit card 12 times a month (a reasonable request). However, I've now been burned twice by slow posting transactions that mysteriously happen at the end of the month. This is blamed on the merchant of course, despite the fact that the credit union processes the funds hold the moment the card is swiped. Their customer service rep actually credited the lost interest to my account the first time this happened about a year ago. Unfortunately, the customer service rep I encountered this time was rude, snappy and lectured me about how the banking system works (thanks, but I have Google too). Therefore I decided to exercise what little power we consumers have and am sharing this experience with you in the hope that it might help someone else. Bottom line if you have a U of I rewards checking account (or two in my case), make sure your 12 transactions have posted prior to the end of the month so your great rate doesn't drop to near zero for that month.
I would give the account 5 stars for the rate, one star for the Byzantine requirements to get that rate and two stars for the sad state of their customer service, which used to be stellar. At least they picked up the phone quickly.
I've been with UICCU ever since I was in school at the University back in '03. The rate on the Rewards Checking has been great, usually the highest I can find anywhere, and I don't feel that what they ask to get the rate is unreasonable. The paperless statements are also less hassle, and the direct deposit was something I wanted anyway. I have been burned by the slow posting transactions before as well, but was given the interest after explaining the situation. The second time, it was simply because I had forgotten to use the card enough times, and I can hardly blame that on them (although I was unaware of the $5 minimum average). I've been MORE than happy with the service that I've received as a customer and have kept my money at UICCU despite the fact that I no longer even live in Iowa City.
5* for still one of the best rates; 0* for innumberable hoops that they make you jump through to get it. Like one other poster, I got burned the first time for late posting of one transaction (they grudgingly made good on the interest that month); the second time I got burned because of one small Debit Card charge; I had 12 ATM Debits > $5 but I didn't realize that the 13th transaction, being of small amount, brought the average of 13 ATM Debit transactions down below $5 ($4.98) (I would have made it if I had done only the twelve transactions!). For crying out loud, I have a Phd in CSE but I cannot keep up with these horrendous requirements and this slow learning-by-getting-burned every month. I may not be able to pull my money out immediately due to their CD bonus rate but this is definitely a royal PITA. The first chance I get I am moving my money out!
My 4 year IRA CD just ended and I put most of the money in the new 2% for 25 months CD which is available as an IRA. The IRA dept. has given me great customer service. No complaints at all. I haven't lived in Iowa for many years but was able to join because I am an alumnus of Univ. of Iowa.
