Excellent credit union

As a former Visions customer, I have nothing but praise for them. Unfortunately, I moved outside of their service area otherwise I would still be a member. In all my years as a member, they never made a single error concerning my accounts. So far, no other banking institution has ever come close to this level of excellence. I would defintely recommend Visions to anyone who is interested in good customer service and low rates. Thank you!
