Great website. Easy to pay bills. Good customer service. That's good enough for me.

Mediocre Bank

Posted by: Jhnjy | Dec 1, 2012

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.
