Pretty Good

Vantage Credit Union is very flexible. We have our car payment with them. They have excellent customer service and great deals for new customers. We haven't had any difficulties with them yet and recommend them to friends.

Lower End of the Credit Union Spectrum

Vantage is not one of the best credit unions to work with although they appear to offer the same dealings as other credit unions. Their customer service leaves a lot to be desired as the tellers can often be very rude and demeaning. Although it is understandable that a lot of volume does go through this bank, they are beginning to charge service fees for a lot of services that used to be free, and this is putting them on the same platform as a bank rather than a credit union. Their loan products are sub par, the products they offer are becoming more outdated, although they are attempting to keep with the times, and I do not like the numerous restrictions that are on the account options that they offer.

Commendable Credit Union

I have been a member of this credit union for a number of years, although they have ceased to serve a purpose for me in more recent times. While they do offer the same products that other credit unions offer, their customer service is lacking, and the representatives at the branches are not always the nicest of people. One tends to feel ignored when coming into the branch, and the friendliness of the company leaves a lot to be desired.

Warning!!!!!

worst bank ever!!!!! warning .... got a car loan from them they charged me a hi risk insurance policy be cause i did not show proof of insurance right away. $$$$600 after my insurance company called them and explained that there was no gap in my insurance they said it was too late and made me still pay. so i decided to refinance with a better bank and now they are making me jump through all kinda hoops to get a pay off and copy of title. they just put you on hold or when you get some one on the phone they tell you that they cant send it or some crap. i would like to mention how i got stuck with them in the first place, i bought a car from frank Leta Acura and they wouldn't use the bank i recommend . almost 8% interest on a used car when i have 780 credit???? i recommend Scott credit union 2.3% interest on same car... also the people at vantage are non educated on there policy and the law... warning don't get involved with them.. thanks scott .

Poor Communication

"Forget" vantage credit union. I lost a job because of them; they blocked my card, and didn't say anything. I couldn't get gas for my car or food for my child. They could have called or left me a message online in my inbox or something.
