Is It Possible To Love A Bank? Only If It's A Credit Union

I've been a member of Dexsta since the early 2000's. I believe my mom has been a member since 1990. We love Dexsta! I briefly left Dexsta to join Commerce Bank (RIP) when I was in college but then came running back to Dexsta when Commerce was bought out by TD North (awful bank!)

I moved to the Dallas, Texas region this year and was worried I wouldn't be able to keep my Dexsta bank very easily (they are not in the shared branching network of unions). I opened up an account at a local bank called ViewPoint (only one I could find in my area close to me with good reviews) for whenever I need to deposit cash.

Anyhow, Dexsta finally joined the modern world with remote deposit for checks! Yay! I am SO happy I can keep them now. They have the best loan rates and credit card rates, they treat you like family on the phone and I've never had any security issues with my card or their website (even though it's old-school-looking). There's no min checking balance (there shouldn't be for a credit union!) and deposits and withdrawals are nearly instant on the website. It's easy to join, you just have to live or work in DE and if you end up moving like I did, you still get to keep them. I plan on getting a car through them at some point. Their mobile deposit system works pretty quickly (two-three days is better than mailing a check and hoping it gets there safely). I highly recommend them for all your banking needs. The only other credit union you should consider is Louviers (they are a shared branch union btw).

My only negative mark is they are not part of the shared branching network of credit unions so that I can make cash deposits from another CU in the network, but it's ok.

CD Rate Worth The Effort For This Retiree

Posted by: |

As one who has been chasing rates for my IRAs over the past several years, having to visit the brick and mortar to open an account was inconvenient. However, the 3.29% APY on a 5 year with the ability to add on IRA transfers over the term, was a winner for me. Furthermore, the customer service couldn't have been better. Initial telephone inquiries and face-to-face contact rate superior among my experiences.

DEXSTA Are Scam Artists

Posted by: |

I got a car loan thru DEXSTA and have insurance on the car. when I purchased the car from the dealer,at the time I assumed the dealer called my insurance company to add the car. That is the experience I had with all the other cars I have purchased. In July, I received an email to show them that I had insurance, which I did. There was apparently 2 months that I didn't have insurance, so in July they charged me $1200 for insurance for May and June( after the fact and $1200 for 2 months. I am being charged and extra $138 a month in my payment for the next 10 months). Even if it was legit, $1200 for 2 months? They can't charge for insurance for months that have past. I now have a complaint with the Delaware State Insurance Commissioner.

Elderly Beware

We went to open a joint CD at Dexsta. We put our son as beneficiary. We were informed that if we both should die, he would get the CD BUT if he withdraws it before the maturity date he would have to pay a 180 day penalty. None of our other banks have this policy. PLUS Dexsta does a hard pull from Experian and Chexsystem. WE HATE Chexsystem with a passion. Our credit score is 800+. We’ve never been overdrawn or had a late payment yet our Checksystem score is 640. We avoid banks and credit unions that use Chexsystem.
