Correction To Review Re: Posting Order

Posted by: CLN | May 2, 2011

The previous review is not correct. Altra posts credit before debits. All ACH credits are posted first, then debits. Checks that come in for a particular day are cleared in numeric order at the end of that business day. We do everything possible to give the member most advantageous posting order.

The only exception is Debit card PIN purchases or ATM withdrawals are posted as they occur and a check cashed at one of our branches will clear immediately.

If the member would like to discuss, please stop in or call our Member Service center. We'd be happy to discuss further.

P.S. The comment system would not let me reply to the previous review or post this without a star rating - I am not trying to skew the ratings!

Great customer service!

I've banked with Altra for years now, And I have to say the customer service is great! I've had every issue resolved with speed and accuracy right away, with no waiting! Everyone is kind, and genuinely seems to care for customers that bank with them. I was told about this bank through a friend, they said how much they liked it, and that I would too. And they were right! The only problems I have had are with the website, but those are forgivable. I would highly recommend banking with this institution! They will meet any needs that you have. If that doesn't convince you, then let me tell you, their rates are low. I've had a credit card for a few years now, and not once have I regretted getting it!

NOT ACCOMODATING

If you're looking for interest rates that can't be beat once you jump through some hoops, this is your bank as long as you don't mind the absence of the "personal" interaction.

Customer Dis-Service

Posted by: Alnel4 | Aug 24, 2016

Went to deposit money for cell phone bill..one of the people on my account is a cab driver so had $13 in quarters. They wouldn't take it, saying that they have some agreement with Festival. First of all I understand the agreement of not having a change counter. Second, you're a god d**m bank, money is money! Third, if someone is offering to count it out all for you and put it in dollar stacks jump at that chance! Less for you guys to do! Fourth, I don't appriciate being told not to come back because I said it was retarded (which you know is true). I will be closing my account at the end of the month, and my boyfriend will be as well. Never will recommend Altra again.

And you probably should really think of calling people when they have something that comes out that'll make their account overdrawn BEFORE the overdraft fee. Literally could have come to put a measly $11 in that day, not everyone remembers when a debit is gonna happen for a monthly debit transaction...nor do they check their bank account daily.

Warning Posting Process!!!!
