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.

Some Good Rates, Watch Out For Unusual Account Rules

Banks are mostly standardized, but each credit union has its own specific account rules. As can be seen by other posters, Connexus has some unusual rules that can be costly if not known. For example, their money market only allows 4 schedule D transactions per month. Another Connexus rule is that ach transfer dollar amounts are limited for both incoming and outgoing ach's -- including new Connexus account funding ach transfers initiated at an external institution. It takes significant time to find all the rules as they are frequently not in Connexus documents or known by CS reps.

Very Unfair Credit Union!

Posted by: |

On November 1, 2021, I received a call from Connexus Credit Union. I have a loan with this Credit Union. The Customer Service Representive informed me that I missed the June Payment and that I am behind 45 days and owe them $626.00. I had no idea that I had missed a June payment. Since 2013, I have not missed and payment with any of my bills. Connexus Credit Union has never reported me late, I have never received a phone call, email, nothing to indicate that I had missed a payment. When I asked them why I was not notified, the Customer Service Representive stated that when I paid the next month payment, they would apply it to the last month payment. The Customer Service Repesentive did not even alert me that they were going to report this to the Credit Bureau! So, I paid the entire $626.00 as fast as I could. Within days credit bureaus TransUnion went down 89 points, Equifax 89 points, and Experian down 60 points. Here is my problem: I am in the process of building a home, in about a month and a half, the lender with run my credit and there may be a chance I will not get financing on my new home, or the interest rate will be too high. I am looking to lose my Deposit and the new home. This is not fair because I had no Idea, that I missed the June payment! If they would have just informed me I would have paid this error! I worked very, very hard to pay all of my bills on time (8 years straight with no late payments) and this one payment will financially take away all of my work and maybe my newdream. My credit report was over 720 and that I have not missed no payments with any of my bills. I looked on my statement with Connexus CU and there was no alerts that I have missed a payment.
