Alaska USA Is Superb CU

Posted by: |

I have been banking with Alaska since 2011 when they financed my car loan. I also bank with US Bank (just okay). Alaska has low fees, no monthly checking account fee cause I have direct deposit. I have a very low interest rate credit card. Customer Service is fantastic and they are friendly and always eager to help. I am dumping US Bank and plan to keep Alaska USA. Their website is easy to navigate. I would say that mobile app needs some updating. Not sure why the negative reviews as I don't feel that way. I keep a good amount in my savings to cover expenses in checking when I am low that month.

Great Customer Service

I joined AlaskaUSA 40 years ago, in the Philippines. Yes, they had a branch there. I have never lived in Alaska, Arizona or California, and have not set foot in a branch office in nearly 40 years. They have extended hours, to accommodate their far flung customers. I use UltraBranch and Bill Pay to pay my bills, as I am often overseas or out of town. My bills are paid automatically, except for my water bill that varies. I have never had a problem when I've called in. Reps were polite, knowledgeable and took care of my concerns right away.
If you read the low ratings, bear in mind that this is a very large credit union, and the poor reviews represent less than 1% of their members. Also many of the low raters admit they are over 90 days late paying. What did they expect? Free money?

My savings account at Alaska Fed Credit Union

I have been a customer of Alaska Federal Credit Union Bank for over 5 years. The service is great and convenient, since I have a Navy Federal Credit Union ATM close to where I live in Coronado. I can make regular deposits and an occasional withdrawal when needed without having to drive long distances to a Bank or ATM. When I decided to purchase a vehicle I used their services due to their lowest interest rate. Overall I am very pleased to have Alaska FCU as my Savings Bank.

Decline In Member Services

10 years ago we would have given Alaska USA 5 stars. After 25 years we are ready to leave them. They have closed branches, taken out ATMs and are part of a network which doesn't seem to always work with their cards. We are going to find a credit union which is part of the Co-Op Shared Branch Network (all of the other credit unions in Fairbanks are in this group). I would definitely not recommend Alaska USA right now. They do not seem to currently care about serving members!
