Amazing Credit Union

Wonderful credit union with exceptional level of Member Service.

University and State Employees Credit Union

I joined this Credit Union shortly after I graduated from University of California San Diego. They have always treated me with courtesy and respect. My one complaint is that several times over the course of the years, they have send me mailed advertisements. I have emailed, called, written and even gone into the branch. I cannot seem to get them to stop this practice. Like other banks, the transaction time between requesting an online check and the delivery of that check to the payee is so long it is almost unexplainable. The statements are easy to read and customer service is great overall.

Have Been A Credit Union Member For 20+ Years

Posted by: |

Over the course of my 20+ years with the credit union, I have had two 2nd mortgages, personal loans, Visa debit cards, family bank accounts, savings accounts, etc. So I can speak with authority that their products and customer service are superlative. I rarely go into a branch office - but can transact business via phone, mail, internet and the many ATMS (Star) scattered around town. I love the convenience of internet banking, you can do bank reconciliations and transfers very quickly. I love the fact that I always get a live person on the phone who actually resolves my issues right then and there.

Highly recommended!

USE Credit Union

USE CU has convenient full-service and ATM locations onsite at University of California campuses and other major employers that USE serves. I don’t use the full-service location often, but it is nice to have nearby. A big plus is the free (for just 15 minutes) parking next to the branch on the University of California, San Diego campus. Free parking just doesn’t exist on a UC campus!

I’m satisfied overall, but can only rate this CU average, because of my dissatisfaction with the online banking experience and the ATM experience. Unfortunately, the web site and the ATMs are what I use most often to conduct business with USE CU.

The ATMs are my biggest source of dissatisfaction, for the following reasons:

--Users have to select a language every time I access the ATM, even though the language preference of a customer is very unlikely to change over time

--The ATM allows only 1 transaction at a time. After completing any transaction (even an on-screen account balance), you have to end your session, reinsert your ATM card, and log in again. Aside from the tremendous nuisance (a typical stop might include viewing a balance, depositing a check, transferring funds from savings to checking, and withdrawing cash) involved, I believe that the need to enter a PIN multiple times greatly increases the risk that someone watching can learn my PIN.

The online banking is just so-so. Navigation involves too many steps in many cases. Also, there is often some service or another that the CU seems to be pressing on its customers.

Too Long Time To Be Functional

Is this a way banking -- you have to wait for 10 days to link external accounts after you registered online banking, not the day open your account. Then rep even don't know if your account would have Zelle for your app or not. YOu still have to wait and see.

They Badly Lack Decency And Integrity.

Their associates also maliciously deceive customers and understand only the language of legal actions.

Read The Fine Print

Been a member of this credit union for decades - it is rife with borderline deceptive advertising and has slid to a low point over the last 5 years. Formerly the Univ and State Employees CU, it created such ill will from its main constituency that it has changed it's name to "BluPeak." In the last few months it has started offering higher CD and savings rates, but only to new members and once the limited time deal runs out you are left high and dry, stuck with high fees and bad customer service. Beware!
