Blue FCU

Posted by: aseamons | Aug 19, 2016

We became members of Blue FCU recently after our previous credit union merged with this group. I was a little anxious about the merger because of the necessity to be able to access funds and be able to pay bills. I was pleasantly surprised, first by the volume of information that was sent out to prior to the merger, and secondly because the merger seemed to go off without a hitch. We didn't experience any interruption in banking service during the merger process. I was able to easily switch my direct deposit as well as my direct withdrawal bills over to the Blue FCU information. For me, a bank is successful if I don't have to take the time to visit a branch or speak with someone. I prefer to do everything online, and am able to do this effectively and efficiently with Blue FCU. Very happy with our credit union!

Credit Check

Must have 3 or less credit checks in the past 2 years to qualify (per chex) opening an account

Misleading

As previously mentioned, the APY is a gimmick. Blue designed an impossibly complex "point" system that, in theory, could earn up to 4%. The requirement to earn said points includes being a member for several years, taking out multiple loans in addition to the debit/ACH requirements. More annoying, they have weird transfer limits on the amount one can deposit within a 3 month period (meaning it took a least 4 months to reach $10,000 from a Chase account I was eager to close). Additionally, lucrative 5% savings account is a bit of a gotcha as well, in the event you exceed the $1000 at any point in the month (including the earned APY earned on the last day) you forfeit the 5% and settle for 0.01% FOR THE WHOLE THING - not just funds over the threshold. Currently in the procss of closing the account (albeit slowly due to transfer limitations). #moveon

Misleading 4% Reward Checking

Posted by: Suber | Feb 5, 2018

You have to bank with Blue over 15 years to get the 4%! It's a point system that they don't tell you over the phone. Don't be like me and order checks move your money give out all of your information just to find out your getting .05%. STAY AWAY!! They lied to me over the phone and you won't find out until 30 days after trying what rate you will receive.
