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.

Worst Financial Institution Ever

If I could give negative stars I would. For the second time in three months I got locked out of my account AFTER someone else was able to steal hundreds of dollars from my account. After someone in another city was able to steal almost $600 from my account I was locked out when I tried to buy a second hand paperback online for $6. I had to go there personally after getting hung up on twice by their CSRs who couldn't figure out why I was upset when I called and further elevated the situation by taking an attitude with me. I went all the way to the branch to get it straightened out and the kid there got pissed off at me for being pissed off that anybody in the state except from me can access my account. And I don't even think he filed the fraud claim, I can't check because the account is still locked so now I have to go back again and deal with them again tomorrow. Worst financial institution ever. Only recommend this place to someone you don't like and want to see get ripped off then pissed on for their trouble.
