I switched to Columbia Credit Union from a mainstream bank several years ago and have been very happy with it. The service is great, and I never have to wait long to talk to anyone, and I never pay any fees for my accounts. Their website has greatly improved recently and so has they're mobile app. Sometimes I have issues linking my account to some e-commerce sites like PayPal and Amazon, but I've always been able to get that resolved by contacting that services customer service. Plus, it feels good to keep my money in the local economy.
I had banked with Columbia Credit Union since I was a kid. My dad set up an account for me when I was little and stayed with them after I got my first job. I had always been happy until I accidentally over drafted my account. I am familiar with overdraft fees and since it was my mistake I was fine paying a reasonable fee, but this was not the case. When I checked my statement I realized that they had double charged me an overdraft fee for only one transaction. I though it was a mistake so I called the bank and they refused to refund one of the fees. The overdraft purchase was at a store that ran my debit card as a credit. Which means that I got and over draft fee when the pending transaction went through. Then again when the actual funds were withdrawn. I thought that this was ridiculous. I was so angry after speaking with a bank representative that I drove to the bank, closed all my accounts and switched to a different credit union.
