What I miss most about being a long time customer at my bank is personal attention. I have been a member at the credit union since 2004 and it's irksome that I still have to present my ID every time I have a transaction. I do understand that there are precautions that must be taken in regards to theft identity, but after over a decade I feel like it would be nice to not have to do this every single time I go to the bank. Then to be told that I can't access my money regardless, even though they know me ... it's impersonal now.
I open two account here for the rates. Like I do with all of my accounts, I deposit some money and I withdraw some money monthly. Never checking the statement, because ever month is the same like clock work. A few months after opening the accounts with the max required for the special rate, the changed the terms. Thet withdrew $10 every month for months because of low balance. I asked to closed the account and that took about a week and a half. Lessons learned. Not going to say stay away but be careful.
Like most banks, they disclose that they will pull your credit. What wasn't clear to me was that this bank does a hard credit inquiry, not a soft one.
Also if you're opening the account for the 5% on $500, the monthly fees can destroy any profits so that you're negative monthly unless you deposit $1k or more or jump through some other hoops that aren't worth it in my opinion.
This bank has the most unprofessional and incompetent staff. They've lied on numerous occasions, was not accountable for stole funds. More recently, my debit card replacement took and I kid you not...almost an entire month. The President never responded to a written letter and his management staff are just as incompetent. I had to open a backup account and will be transferring immediately over to my new credit union. Think twice! They only get the one star because there is no zero star option.
I opened a savings account anticipating getting a share certificate soon afterwards. I got sick and couldn't follow through. My second quarterly statement was assessed a $1 paper statement fee and a $10 inactivity fee. I called to close the account, but couldn't. The call center doesn't accept those requests. I needed to be called by a "specialist in a day or two." A specialist called the same day and demanded I mail a formal cancellation letter. Good going, CUNJ. Stealing money from an ailing senior citizen. After all, "rules are rules."
I opened this account for a pre approved car loan. Was told only needed $100 balance. After the dealer gave me a better interest rate I declined the loan. Should have told me then that I would be charged $5 per month. They didn't. I didn't realize until my $100 shrunk to $75. Crooks!
