I bank with Allegacy credit union. Almost every teller there including 2 managers know me by name, this gives it a personal touch. Most of the time I see the same people there so it gives me a sense of a familiarity with the bank. I also compared their fees for the cashiers' check, loan rates, wire transfers incoming or outgoing and they are much cheaper than Wells Fargo or Bank of America. I had the first hand experience of their lower rates first time when I wanted to pay an auto loan off and Wells Fargo wanted to charge me $25 while Allegacy did the same for $15. I would like to completely switch to them from Wells Fargo but the only drawback is they are not available in most of the areas like Wells Fargo is. If use out of state ATM at another credit union that is affiliated with them then I would have to pay ATM fees.
Being a member at Allegacy has been the best financial decision I've made in a very long time. From the contact center to outside branches, the service I receive EVERY TIME has been fantastic. I've banked with larger and smaller banks, but I have never received as much "financial care" as I do with Allegacy. The negative responses really surprise me, and seem extremely unlikely for this type of quality credit union. I will never bank anywhere else!
Allegacy is an excellent cried union because they still have the personal touch that I like to have where I bank. They also waive the fee if you know someone, you just have to tell them and they look up their name. When I opened my account, the gentleman who helped me spent a lot of time chatting and getting to know me. The actual opening of my account took minutes and I received my first statement and debit card within a couple days. I was so impressed with this as well as the customer service for the internet. I had a problem and they were extremely helpful when I had to call. There website is clean and easy to navigate. I have been very pleased with all my interaction with Allegacy.
LOVE Allegacy! Best in the banking industry!
However - I recently moved to Charlotte and they only have one location & no outside ATM! this is very inconvenient, but I will not leave them. They are expanding in Winston Salem & Greensboro, but they really need to expand the Charlotte region.
