Public Service Credit Union - Would recommend!

Almost a decade ago, I decided to leave my former major bank (Wells Fargo) for a local credit union and I chose Public Service Credit Union. My only regret is that I didn't do so sooner. PSCU is the best bank I've ever worked with. I have both a checking and a savings account there. Anytime I go into a branch I am greeted by friendly and professional staff who make banking a pleasure. They have an automated phone system, but during business hours it's easy to reach a real human. I do the majority of my banking online, and it is a solid website. The only downside to that is the website will pop up a second site and redirect when you want to do online bill pay. The fees are fairly reasonable - as long as you make three transfers or payments through them you can avoid a monthly bill pay fee, and keeping a minimal amount of money in the account is fine (I generally keep $50-$100 in my checking account after I pay monthly bills). I also have overdraft protection of $300 free, so I never have to worry about overdraft fees. The ATM fee is steep: $2.50 on top of the machine fee, but they are part of a credit union network, so it's easy to find a free nearby ATM and avoid that fee. Overall, I'm pleased with PSCU and would highly recommend them.

Savings Account

I had never considered a credit union until I bought a new car and the loan went to them. I opened a savings account because of the amazing service they gave me with the car. The customer service was great and they answered all of my questions. I was leery at first because I always though credit unions were expensive, but there are no fees associated with my savings account. I have the app on my phone as well as online banking. Both are very easy to navigate and give me the most up to date information that I am looking for. The only thing that I am not fond of is that when I do have to go inside to do my banking, the line seems to always be very long. I try to do as much online and mobile that I can to avoid going inside the credit union. I am thinking about switching all of my banking over to the credit union.

So Frustrating

Posted by: VStees | Oct 18, 2019

These guys are awful. Don't waste your time here. I have been with them since 2010. They constantly cancel or freeze my debit card because of suspicious fraud, 2 times a year at least, with zero warning or confirmation. They have a fraud department that seems to be disconnected from their bank (3rd party?) So when you try to resolve anything you are passed between the different departments in Canvas, and then have to deal with an external source and go through that painfully long process. Than call back to Canvas because the 3rd party didn't do their job right. I than have to constantly update all of my automatic bill payments that are set up, that is extremely time consuming and makes some accounts late = even more calls. Since becoming Canvas Credit Union, their mobile website and desktop online banking is very limiting. You cant read a full description of the charge on the mobile site. Used to be able to trasnfer money from my credit card to my checking if needed, not any longer. They are constantly having 'sorry' were down notices and features are literally not even there any longer, like to delete a scheduled upcoming payment, they dont always show up, so you have to delete the entire bill payee. Then re-enter them in, more lost time. Horrible customer service too, even with a supervisor, very patronizing and ignorant, they don't listen. On the hunt for another CU!!!

Horrible Fees And Customer Service

Like many other reviews here, the service has just gone away. Once you finally step up to a teller, they are quick to sell you anything when all I do is simple banking. Public Service Credit Union, prior to changing to Canvas, was great, not so now people. They have a "greeter" at the door at all locations now, encouraging you to use their ATM for transactions, saying the wait could be very long to see a teller. Let me tell you something, they don't even own, nor control the ATM's, so if your deposit is lost, as mine was, it takes the third party that runs the ATM to try and find the mistake. Well they never found mine, go figure. Canvas flat out has the worst fees to transfer your money to vendors, as much as $16 to transfer $100 in two days!
There are sooooo many better choices, I'm moving my business to 1st bank for the time being, ANYTHING is better than Canvas, PLEASE READ REVIEWS, Canvas will not be around long.
