BEST Experience Of A Lifetime

I am an 83yr old Vet. I have been member of BECU for many years I retired from Boeing in 2017 and purchased machines for home business. one broke and the company gave me a hard time with warranty so Olivia, manager of Bonney Lake branch, helped me with dispute which led to me returning it and BECU removed the large funds from their bank.
2 July2021, I went to Amazon Cust service for help with a Fire Stick. over 4th holiday the guy got into my computer and cleaned out our checking account. Olivia prepared the paperwork and BECU replaced our funds before they recovered them. Soc. Sec. told me that direct deposit into our new account would take 60 days, I called BECU and was told they could do nothing so I asked for a supervisor and got SHELBY in Spokane, she said our old canceled account still existed so she placed monitoring and alerts on our old account and when various on-line deposits arrive, she will transfer them into our new account. I am 83yrs old and have banked all my life. I have NEVER received such competent help from employees who are so pleasant to work with. I will tell everyone and never look at another bank.

Great Rates

Posted by: |

Good bank, great rates. However can get a little trigger happy with overdrafts if you have a maxed out line of credit. Working on some math to find out if my 10.99% interest is being calculated properly as it appears it's not. However I won't change my review from 5 stars until I discuss with a banker in person.

Good Short Term CD Rates Currently

Posted by: |

Currently 5.75% APY on 3-5 month CDs for Member Advantage customers.

In general BECU rates are not good. But will take advantage of these.

Okay For A Secondary Bank

Posted by: |

I've had an account here for several years, as it's nearby.

The good: they're checking and savings rates for smaller balances, i.e. <$500, are excellent. Their telephone support has been close to excellent. Multiple cash machines that are inside, at least at the two branches I can think of.
The okay: their in-branch services are fairly good at the front end, where they have staff to hear what you're there for who in turn direct you to the appropriate place.
The could-be-improved: you can sit around for a long, long time, and you have no idea when you're next. The prerequisites for earning the extra interest were unclear until I called in response to a letter I received from them, and they're very minimal. Their website could use updating.
The bad: it took me 4 visits just to get added to a business account, with the first three reps providing a different answer each time. It took a phone call between visits 3 and 4 and bringing in their name and what they said to get it to happen. I get alerts fairly often providing me the code to sign in for my account when I wasn't, and when I call the # in question, I get a general number with AI options!
