I have been with Amplify for over 25 years. They have great online services and I can do almost everything I want online. Amplify continues to offer very competitive rates and no fees on ATMs anywhere. Not sure what more I could want in a bank. Thank you Amplify for providing such great service to me for so many years.

I've belong to four different credit unions, three in Austin. Amplify CU is the best of all of them. I rarely have to wait for a teller and they are always helpful. Several employees have been there for many years and they know my name.
I've been a member of Amplify since it was IBM Employees Credit Union and I am happy to recommend it.
I've been a member since the mid 1990's, and have watched the quality of employees and service continue to deteriorate since it stopped being the IBM Employees credit union. They never explained to us members why the changeover to "Amplify" -- we assumed it was a change in name only, but oh, how wrong that assumption turned out to be. Calling the customer service department is a complete waste of time, for 90% of the time the CSA agent won't know how to help you, but will promise somebody's going to call you back, which of course they never do. Visiting in person is quite dismaying. There's only one or two of the old time employees left, the rest are a constantly changing parade of incompetent nincompoops who know nothing about banking, but they're perky and hope you have a great! day and offer you a bottle of water. Then there's the regular emails offering "seminars" which are nothing more than attempts to sell you something -- not Amplify services, but a variety of "financial" products and services. When did it become ok for a credit union to shill for hucksters trying to sell you something? The actual financial advisors who used to be associated with IBMFCU have all severed their business relationships with Amplify, and who can blame them? I am a supporter of credit unions in general, but after 16 years with this one I've come to the conclusion that Amplify is a disaster waiting to happen.
MUST READ! The worst credit union ever, strike that the worst bank ever! After having a car loan with them several years and a series of events I called to pay my loan. The women who took my credit card number "hits enter twice" and runs my card for two payments. When for some reason they could not cancel one, she tells me that I have to go into my bank and stop payment! Okay do it, but yet again wasting my time. I decide to look into refinancing my 8% used car loan with university credit union, they refinance me at 3.5% NICE! But that is not it! months go by and I get a call that I owe amp one more payment, I ask why? They tell me that my last payment bounced, I tell them I have never bounced anything in my life and say I have to look into it. I pull my closing statement and it showing paid in full. I also call my credit union and ask them if I Ever bounced anything to amp. They tell me no you have never bounced a thing to them or anyone else. A few days go by and this jerk named Chris calls me and says that all I am trying to do is skip out on a payment, a small payment at that. He calls me a liar and a thief and demands payment, I tell this guy that I have a closing stament showing nothing due! He again tells me that I'm a liar and all I'm doing is trying to get out of a payment and that my last payment bounced and that I have to pay him or he is going to ruin my credit! We shared some words loudly and ask them can you guy possibly of made a mistake when I refinanced and gave university the wrong pay off amount, he says that they do not make mistakes then he accuses me of ripping them off and all I am doing is trying to skip out on a payment, I told this very rude Chris guy off and hung up on him. This credit union is not a credit union that we all love this bank is just like the big banks that calls us liars, and try to steal our hard earned money they will not help you with anything. Go to another credit union stay away form this place. Now if this Chris just simply said yes we made a mistake and gave the wrong payoff I would of paid it right then. But i am showing my last payment paid and have a stament showing ZERO DUE. As for my credit I have a statement showing the loan paid in full and closed, and the funny thing is that my new bank has the title would they of held that until the loan was paid and closed?
