We have been banking with ABCO for quite some time now. My husband is a teacher and this bank serves them. We have multiple accounts with this bank, including checking, savings, car loan, and credit card. I find that their customer service is superb. Whenever we need something they are quick to get back to us. We have never had any issues cashing checks, or with deposits. They offer very competitive rates for all of their accounts. Their fees are also very reasonable. We feel for sure like we get more personal attention compared to the larger banks. I only wish they had more branches. The closest one to my home is at least 30 minutes away. But it isn't that big of a deal since we can do pretty much everything online. All in all, we really enjoy banking with ABCO.
a note for anyone chasing rates on their rewards checking:
Their online banking system has to be one of the most archaic I've ever encountered. It is about 20 years from the past, and features a hodge podge of 3 rd party modules for bill payment and statements.
If you are there to make your purchases and get your rewards, you can live with it, but making it your actual bank would be unlikely for anyone more civilized.
Bank to Bank transfers don't exist but you can trick bill payment into letting them out bound through, although they take longer as it requires the receiving bank to do some manual legwork to match it up to your account.
I was able to sign up via postal mail fairly easily. First month reward requirements are waived, so you may want to time your account opening towards the first of the month as it may take a bit for your direct deposit to transfer. If you sign up the last week of the month, that is your waived month, and doing it through the mail takes longer so you may have trouble getting everything set up by the next month.
RCA no longer competitive and now this ..
From their web site:
"The Board of Directors has decided that ABCO FCU will be ending its relationship with the CO-OP® Shared Branching network on April 28th.
Analysis indicated that the number of ABCO members visiting other credit unions was very small compared to the number of members from other credit unions visiting our branches."
I have been with ABCO for over 10 years. I recently ran into a financial crisis and got hit with over 5 overdraft fees because of my balance being under by $1 to cover an ACH. Because of my financial situation, I am tightly budgeted and it became a domino effect and resulted on overdraft over overdraft. A real nightmare. My financial troubles are my own but certainly its a hardship not my lifestyle. With being with them for over 10 years, they could see that it is not a common occurrence for me. When I called to seek assistance. I was reminded about an incident that happened 3 years ago, that I quickly rectified. They don't personally care about their members. They lack empathy. Even if there was nothing they could do they should not respond so negatively and act like they could care less about you. The tone of voice and the dismissive responses I got from the representative was highly offensive. This is not the first time that I have experience that type of attitude from the staff members. Perhaps they are underpaid and unhappy. I really do not know but I have halted my direct deposit with my account there and will soon be closing my account for good. Customer service is extremely important to me. And they have failed me tremendously. Sad to go but I am sure there are other credit unions that they can be easily replaced with.
I've been using the ABCO branch near my home for over 4 years (and have been using another one near my business for over 25 years). In that time I've had no problems with the first Credit Union, and nothing but problems from ABCO. From the very start - when setting up my business account they neglected to set up a 'required' personal account, so that was an obstacle to overcome. Over the 4 years I've questioned the 8 day holding policy before liberating the money from deposited checks. The manager said it's their policy and that they don't know the business paying me recently (a local company that I've been depositing checks from for nearly a YEAR). Prior to that I deposited over $200k over 2 years from one of the 20 biggest pharma companies on earth and they apparently don't know them either, as the same extensive holding period was in force the whole time. Why can't the money be liberated when the check I deposited clears? Because it it ABCO policy to hold customers money for as long as possible. I now use this branch as a transfer point only (it's near the post office) - as soon as the check clears the money immediately goes to my other credit union. So ABCo gets it for a few days but they lose the long term benefit of having me keep it there until needed. Or any other business from me whatsoever. The people are nice but I see no reason to work with a customer-unfriendly credit union.
