We've banked with WSECU for 25-years, and they are the best bank we've dealt with. They are very professional and courteous and willing to do what they can to meet your needs. They are over and above other banks we've had accounts with, such as Bank of America, and Citibank. It's a world of difference. We would definitely recommend them if you're looking for a bank with real care and concern and they don't treat you like you're some customer that's one out of a million others that they could care less about.
We've been customers for 25 years, and they are the best we've ever banked with. They just treat you well and remain professional and courteous whenever we have any needs. I would recommend them and it is a much better experience than other banks we've had dealings with such as Bank of America, Citi Bank, etc. A world of difference!
While the interest you earn on savings and checking accounts is typically low, the service is always fantastic and the fees are far below average for banks (the fees are probably average for Credit Unions, which is to say "very low").
WSECU doesn't have too many ATMs, but they are part of the Credit Union Co-Op, which gives you free usage of the ATMs at all 7-Eleven stores (so, probably 6,000 locations around the country) and shared branch banking with other credit unions: especially convenient for travelers, this gives you more flexibility than the largest private systems (BofA or Citibank, for example).
The international exchange rate is fantastic (1%) if you can find a partner bank system (5B in Central America, for example), though they don't advertise this benefit to members! And the rewards program, if you partake, offers a great value on exchange of points for prepaid credit cards.
Great customer service at the University district location in Seattle, though I miss the drive through, and at the Lake Union branch which responds quickly to lines by bringing more tellers up to the front.
