Great Customer Service

Posted by: |

Have been a member for 7 years and have appreciated the friendly, knowledgeable CSR’s. Just had some CD’s mature at the end of the month and because their rates were a little lower I did not renew but wouldn’t hesitate to do businesss with them in the.future.

Clumsy And Unfriendly Website.

Posted by: |

6% on $25,000 is a good deal. I had a CD with them which matured in July. I opened a Kasasa Cash account but they did not remember me. I sent Dl photos and a utility bill pdf which they did not accept because it was made with an old Adobe! When I finally got the account, they gave me a new member number. When I tried to log in, I was connected to the old member number. It took almost an hour with a befuddled CS rep to straighten out. Waiting now for a Debit Card. Wish me luck.
One problem with the website is that links which should easily be available on the page are either missing or buried somewhere. You can get what you need from the Chat but the box is very small and links take 5 or 6 lines of text while the message is scrolled off the top of the screen. It also, after about 20 seconds, says “We haven’t heard from you in a while. Do you still want to chat?”

Thoughts On This Bank

Posted by: |

Opened a 7 year cd here a little over 6 years ago the sign up process was long and had to call in many times just to get things squared away mostly because of all the never ending mistakes that were made on my account, also this place has a 12 month inactivity claus which basiclly forced me into linking an account from elsewhere to send money once every 11 months to avoid the account being sent to the state of Maryland as a dead account plus customer service was poor at best with very long waits on the phone just to get to someone that could answer questions so this is just my opinion if you're on the bubble between this place and another I'd go with the other bank might be worth taking 10 to 20 basis points less to save yourself the misery of dealing with their customer service.................well today my account matured and removing the money was almost as bad as giving it to them 7 years ago took numerous calls and 6 hours of my day just to get a wire transfer done which they finally completed after having to be verified 3 different times because as they claimed the large amount had to be done this way what a load of crap that was never again , if they're the only opition in the future I'll just bury the money in my crawl space LOL....

Cannot Get My Money Out

Posted by: |

I called customer service two separate times asking that my 5-year certificate not be renewed and the balance be deposited into my membership savings account. Customer service rep said that my computer records indicated my intention but my on-line account never changed from "renew" and my certificate is now showing it has renewed for another five years. I am told there is no manager to speak to and was referred to Escalation Dept. Escalation Department said they cannot handle this and abruptly ended the call. I was told that I could not call the certificate department directly. Basically, I cannot access or get my money out. Frighteningly, horrible customer service. I will never do business with them again. Unresponsive.
