Vons Credit Union review

I opened an account while I was working for Vons. I opened a savings account because it earned interest, and I wanted my savings separate from my checking account. Customer service was great, and helped me set up the account over the phone. I found that their online services were not on par with other banks though. I access my accounts from my phone a lot, and their site was not mobile friendly at all. When accessing it on a laptop though, it worked fine and was easy to use. The amount of interest earned was lower than some other banks and credit unions offer, but I was mostly interested in somewhere to have my money set aside, so that wasn't an issue.

I Would NOT Recommend Certified Federal Credit Union

Posted by: |

My credit union whom I was with for over 30 years merged with Certified Federal a YEAR ago and I just now was contacted by CF about my address being wrong. What I learned (after several calls) was that all the data merged was entered manually and my address had a “typo”! It was such that some of my mail was able to get to me but apparently I have several bank statements dating back to mid 2019 that are lost! What kind of modern day financial institution enters data manually and then doesn’t double check??? Moving my money out of this dinosaur institution today!
