A New Adventure.

My wife and I closed on our refi with Adventure Credit Union last week and we couldn’t be happier with the whole process. After a quick review of our situation Eric was able to suggest one of Adventure's mortgage options that not only had a lower interest rate but was able to remove the high fees we were paying for mortgage insurance (PMI).

Adventure’s in-house underwriting was equally helpful in getting us the right mortgage and it won’t be sold off to some unknown firm in New Whatever.

We have only been members of Adventure Credit Union for a year or two but they now have our checking, savings, a personal loan, an auto loan and mortgage.

We highly recommend Adventure Credit Union for your Michigan craft banking needs.

Lifetime Of Great Experiences, Great Rates, Great Management, Family Friendly

I've been a member of this credit union since it was called Bell Com Credit union back in the mid-80's.  They gave me my first job while in high school and have treated my family with the utmost respect and kindness. 

With deep gratitude to the staff and leadership I am proud to write about my wonderful 25 years of experience with this credit union.  We have since moved out of state and continue our relationship and wouldn't change it for the world. 

I've personally spoken to leadership in the past couple of years and was struck with how caring they are given the new world of foreclosures and high unemployment we live in.  Needless to say, we will be members for years to come and are proud to be.

Thank you Option 1 for blessing my family in so many ways for 25+ years.  This kind of relationship is second to none for us.

This company made feel as if i was being prepared for collection's. They failed big time to notify me when my first car payment was due 10 days hence. Wanted me to do a credit card cash advance. Finally got my account numbers so i could set it up at my bank. Needless to say, the clerk is not customer friendly. Yes, the 32nd street address.

Option 1 CU Unfair To Old Customers

Posted by: bazardo | Nov 3, 2011

Watch out if you move out of state and don't close your account.  I called them today to close out my account and was told it had gone dormant and they had charged me 5.00 a month fees and exhausted my funds and then closed the account.  "it was on your statements that you were being charged and the account was being closed"  Now if I had read on my statement that I was being charged for NOT using my account there is no way I wouldn't have closed it right away.  Also they said it had 44.00 in it.  When I moved out of state it had over 100.00 in it.  Of course they kept telling me it was my fault for not reading my statement.  I have worked in the financial industry for over 30 years and there is no way I would not read any statement (if indeed I really got them).  Very poor and condescindiing customer service.  I would think in the interest of customer relations they would have given me the money they basically just took.  It was not like this when it was Bell Com.
