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


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

Frustrates Until You Are Blue In The Face!

Posted by: ralphh | Oct 23, 2019

I applied online over a week ago for a 5 year CD @ 3%. They kept coming back asking for more documents to be downloaded (driver's license, Social Security card, W2 statement, -- and more things than any other bank, credit union or broker ever asked for). With a high credit score and clean banking record, I kept asking them to let me fund the account before rates dropped. As time passed with no answer from them they did lower rates. And even then after more than a week they still don't reply. If it's this much trouble putting in a substantial deposit, I'm glad I won't have to worry sometime in the future about how hard they will make it to get my money back! Blue Federal Credit Union can sing the blues without me.
