After using banks for years, I began using Ascend when my income plummeted in 2008. Banks required a $50 deposit to open an account; Ascend only asked for $5. As for fees, they are more economical than the banks I formerly used. And their customer service has always been excellent regardless of the status of my accounts.
Continue growing and improving. I'm a member for life.
When I signed up they told me if I got direct deposit my money would be available to me after midnight it is 3 in the morning and my direct deposit is not on my card.i were ish that they would be honest and tell you your money won't be available until the day you get paid most banks have direct deposit available two days early not same day as your payxa
I have been a member of Ascend FCU for 10+ years before they changed their name to Ascend. Over the past couple of years things have been changing. Their customer service is getting worse and they started to charge a monthly fee for checking accounts. I have since changed banks but Ascend used to be a good bank but not any longer.
