The Home Of High Interest Checking

Posted by: |

When you hear about high interest checking accounts you're normally waiting for the other shoe to drop.  There's usually a catch like enormously high deposit requirements or unreasonable penalties if you don't meet the monthly requirements.

I found a checking account at a credit union in my town that offers a big rate with small requirements and they are probably one of the best kept secrets around.  I was suprised that I didn't have to give up any of my debit card or online banking services to go with a credit union versus a big bank.

I can recommend Beacon if you live in their service area.

Never Again!

If u have to get any sort of loan NEVER go with Beacon Credit union. They r horrible! I have never had a company charge me $10 for paying over the phone for a convenience charge then after an update of their system they charge $10 for paying online! That's total BS! I can understand if I am late on payments but don't punish your customers for paying their bill on time NEVER AGAIN! I wish I could get a different loan company for my truck to finish payments! The only reason they got 1 star is because I had to review
