Love my credit union

Posted by: |

I have had a checking account with American Heritage for about 6 years. The account is free every month as long as I make 2 transactions during the month. I do most of my banking online, but have been satisfied with the environment and attitude of employees on the occasions I have visited a branch. Generally speaking the online experience is acceptable, although the website is a bit more difficult to navigate compared to other banks I have had accounts with. I have tried to access the online chat feature several times, but found it unavailable. Apparently it is available only during normal business hours.

Beware If Out Of Area

Posted by: |

they indicate you can join, but if you are not within their service area .... they will make it difficult for you. They require you to ALSO get a copy of the application notarized.

Appears to me to ONLY be required to discourage you from joining, AND, as noted, some of their products will not be available to you.

I recommend that if you are NOT within their service area that you just avoid this credit union.

Best Rates Not Available

Posted by: |

Apparently their best rates are not really available. The 15 mo. 1.25% APY rate is only for EXISTING customers. Even then, they said they would not honor the rate for those who do not live there - never mind sending money to their charity. Bit of a bait and switch.

This Place Is A Joke

Been a member for over a took almost two months to join this dump. It was harder to join this credit union than it was just to get my mortage. Nevertheless, after joining I applied for a credit card since I was told they offer big limits on their cards. Took the credit inquiry and was approved for 10k....awesome right? Nope! The decision was reversed after they saw I don't live in Pennsylvania. Never told me up front might as well not become a member if you don't live here because banking needs you may have will NOT be given to you. Over a year as a member and every time I have called them the reps on their member video chats (who by the way are the most fake individuals you will ever come across) ask me if I want to close my account...with a smile on their face. A complete joke. When I tell them no that's when I get their attitude. Like our rudeness didn't scare you off? Well okay what do you want because we are not giving you anything besides a checking! Glad I spent months attempting to join a credit union that will ONLY offer me a checking account. When I've asked for more than a checking account 100% of the time I am told we take care of the members that are in our community and even though you're a member you need to find a bank close to where you live. Think again assholes....I'm parking my whooping $5 there forever and will be getting my hard works worth by rating you 1/5 stars wherever I can find and will be cussing out every agent that I come in contact with. Am I salty? Nah just pissed that these people wasted my time and I will make sure I waste theirs as much as I want. Gotta love those membership perks hahaha
