City of Boston CU review

I previously had a savings account at City of Boston Credit Union for about two years. The interest rates were competitive among other physical banks and credit unions in the area, but I ultimately left the credit union and opened a savings account with an online-only bank since I found the interest rates there were significantly higher. I also didn't like that the credit union's online interface seemed really outdated and was hard to use, so I relied on monthly paper statements instead which isn't something I prefer. Because the online system wasn't efficient, I went to the physical location of the bank whenever I needed to do something, which wasn't at all convenient since there were so few physical locations.

Not Worth The Hassle

With the lack of deposit-taking ATMs, the hidden policies that are not recorded in any of their terms and conditions (and that they will even acknowledge aren't published publicly), the minuscule dividend payments, the multiple data errors, and the generally unfriendly staff (at least at my branch), this is just not what I'm looking for in a credit union. Luckily, other credit unions in the area make it easy to switch accounts, so that is just what I intend to do.
