Bellco Is Okay With Me.

I have been a Bellco Customer since, at least, 1996.  I have trouble logging into their online banking, my wife never does, so I guess this is my issue.  When I call their customer service department they are helpful and my account is quickly unlocked.

I have never had issues with their fees.  I have had a couple auto loans with them.  All of my checking, savings, and direct deposit is with them.

I don't like there rates for PLOCs compared to other banks.  I just read reviews for those same banks and they were so bad I thought I would check out the reviews for Bellco.

Since There were no reviews I thought I would add my .02 to say...

No real troubles with Bellco on my end.

Love This Bank!

I have banked with Bellco for over 12 years and couldn't complain. They have good rates on their loans and credit cards. They recently increased some of their fees, but they are still way less than other banks.

Just A Greedy Bank, No Different Than The Big Banks.

First off, Bellco barely participates in the CU System and their tellers are useless. I tried to do something with a CUofCO account and they told me to use the ATM. I said "I've waited in line to talk to you. I don't use ATM's. I'm a member here as well. Are you kidding me?"
Customer Service: 0 Stars

Their website and online banking feels like it's 1999 and is very challenging to use as it not at all intuitive. Still, I've seen worse.
Web Experience: 2 Stars

The interest rate on their loans is usually lower than others, but that's because they offer zero features, including payment protection.
Competitive: 1 Star

Their fees aren't bad. But, I refuse to bank with them as they failed me so many times on so many levels. I guess low fees translate to horrible customer service.

In just under two years I also had two auto loans, in a row, through Bellco. Got disabled. Go to Bellco. Instead of telling me that the second loan too new for Bellco to skip a payment or modify in any way, fully aware of my medical condition, Bellco has me complete a ton of paperwork and talk to a third-party financial counselor who tries to sell me a monthly subscription that I can't afford. Great counseling. Then, I wait. Then they tell me they won't do anything. All this while I'm fighting for my life. Struggle for ten months to pay them on time, every month. Let them know that the hospital bills have taken over and can't afford it. Bellco reposes a 60-day late vehicle. And, the first slap in your face is that you must contact a different department to have the vehicle repo'ed. It's a good gimmick. I didn't do it the first time and threw away 5 grand trying to keep a vehicle I couldn't even drive because of my health! Then, as another slap in the face, they send a letter saying it would be in my best interest to pay it off in full or to work something out. I tried to work something out! Credit unions are supposed to be member owned and serve their members. You won't find that here. Just a greedy bank, no different than the big banks.
