Decent Experience

Posted by: |

According to their CSR, due to overwhelming demand, they are 72 hours behind.

Opening a CD account:
• Soft pull w/Trans Union
• Require a copy of social security card, although not listed
• Disregard their email, you need to be proactive as no one contacts you during approval process.
• Maximum ACH transfer is $250,000 for opening a CD account. Over that amount needs to be wired in.
• Your membership number is not the same as your account number

Connexus Credit Union

Very well designed website for applying for a money market account. Very fast response to application. Excellent rates on money market accounts. Also great talking to their customer service representatives.

Better Savings Interest Rates And Friendly Service

I chose Connexus because of it offers higher interest rates on savings accounts compared with others. Connexus has also given me friendly and helpful service. It took me a while to make a connection with someone in the IRA section, but once I contacted Cathy, she was friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure working with her. I'm happy that I found Connexus.
