Credit Union West is an Arizona-based cooperative that is currently open for membership to local residents and family members of account holders. The credit union offers products and services through the personal and business banking aspects of its business.
As far as its personal banking products, Credit Union West offers savings, checking, money market, and certificate accounts to meet its members’ needs. Its checking account options include a free, basic account and an account that offers opportunities to earn rewards and discounts. The latter checking account offers rebates from national retailers, discounts at local stores and restaurants, and grocery coupons, as well as various ways to reduce the account’s monthly service fee. Savings accounts are available and can be opened with a small initial deposit. Money market accounts reward larger balances with higher rates of interest and have a higher initial deposit minimum than the credit union’s savings account. Certificates and IRAs are offered in term lengths ranging from 6 to 60 months. Youth accounts offered provide access to straightforward checking and savings account for children, teens, and students. Credit Union West has been recognized by DepositAccounts in the past for its long-term Certificate rates.
Credit Union West online banking provides a platform for members to check their account balances, make loan and credit card payments, pay bills, and transfer funds between accounts. The credit union’s website also provides member education resources like budget software, financial counseling, and identity theft services.
Credit Union West was organized and chartered in 1961 and is headquartered in Glendale, Arizona. It serves its members through multiple branches located across the state of Arizona.
Membership in Credit Union West is open to those who live, work, or worship in the Arizona counties of Apache, Coconino, Cochise, Gila, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, Yavapai, or Yuma.

I had a direct deposit with C/W for almost two years. I had a checking account and a $3000 limit credit card with automatic payment deduction. I have never been late and yet I received a notice in the mail my credit card had been cancelled. When I inquired why I was informed that my credit score had fell to 695 and the credit union required a score of 705. It didn't matter that I was an established customer with a perfect payment record. The low credit score was a one month mistake and my score returned to above 705. The credit union didn't follow up and recheck the score and reissue the card. The credit union used poor judgement and was too prompt to abandon a loyal customer.
