Summer Turns To Autumn - 9/9/2016

My new favorite credit union has just turned its "Summer Celebration" CD promotion into an "Autumn Celebration" CD promotion.  This involves the same 33-month CD, with a 2.10% APY for deposits of $100k-plus.  It's still billed, however, as being for a "limited time."

CFCU Community CU (NY) Adds 33-Month Celebration CD - 7/7/2016

A Solid Credit Union -- CFCU

I was a member of CFCU while I attended Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. I chose CFCU because they had a branch on campus, but I stayed with CFCU because they had excellent customer service. I was always treated well when I had to deposit a check or had a question about their policies. For example, I needed to take out a loan. They explained to me what my options were and answered every question I had about repayment. CFCU is generally very helpful and want their customers to save money. Once, when I had a withdrawal that was going to overdraft, they called me up to try and get me to deposit money to fix it before they had to charge me. The only downside was that they didn't have any online banking at the time, but they now offer that service. I highly recommend that Tompkins County residents get a CFCU account.

Horrible Teller Experience At Drivethru At Meadowstreet Branch

Posted by: BrockStar | Sep 13, 2015

On September 12, 2015, a Saturday, my girlfriend and I went through the drivethru at CFCU's Meadow Street Branch. There was a chubby chick working the tubes and she was yelling and swearing (the F word, over and over) and seemed very angry and distracted. She was rude to us and seemed very unhappy to be there and kept turning around to yell at someone, we think was a kid. A guy walking by on the street said the woman had her kid in there and was yelling at him the whole time he was in there. He was pretty dismayed. Our kids were in the car and asked why the lady was saying bad words. They were amazed. We had to try to distract them with snacks.
CFCU is always talking about how friendly and accessible they are, but then they hire someone of this low quality? It was something straight out of an XtraMart at midnight in Dayton, Ohio.
CFCU, you've always been pretty great, but there aren't better candidates to hire for customer service than THIS??!! WOW!!! Class it up, please!!!!!! This is where people get and put THEIR money! They need to have smart, professional, CLEAN people attending to that big responsibility.

Lied To And Cheated Out Of Over $4312

Applied for and got a (ALLEGED) no closing cost mortgage. With a down payment loan, $5000 in sellers concessions (that they wouldn't let me use all of) and a representative telling me (3 times ) they would cut my lawyer a check at closing I figured it would go well. Wrong! Between cfcu, their lawyer, sellers lawyer and even my own, I got screwed out of $4312. A no closing cost loan made what should have been a $65k mortgage into a $68k mortgage, plus the fact that cfcu lied to me and never cut my lawyer a check except out of MY account! I was lied to and cheated out of over 4 grand and as far as I'm concerned, they owe it to me. They don't talk to me anymore since I called them on it, but they love taking my money. They're no better than any crooked bank.
