Great Credit Union

Posted by: |

Educators Credit Union, ECU for short, is a credit union based in southeast Wisconsin.   I have banked with them for about 14 years.  They have always been very helpful when I would need loans, be it Auto, personal or school.  I also have a checking and savings account with them and I have never had any problems with them.  They give out dividends when they have a good year, and it is based on how many accounts you have with them.  They are always friendly and have great customer service.  The only down fall is the lack of branches at least in my area, but there is one about 10 miles from my house if I do actually need a brick and mortar store.  I mainly use their online tools and they are very good.  They offer account balances, bill pay, loan quotes all from their website.  I would recommend them to anyone.

Overall a mostly positive experience

So I came to Educators for their lending abilities. I heard that they rates were the lowest in the area for what I was hoping to lend with. I did not end up using them, however I was sold on their line of products and services. Their savings account and checking account rates are top notch in my opinion. This local credit union is great in a sense where you get the larger banking feel(atm access, multiple locations), without the big bank treatment. The one thing I was a little displeased about came with a recent transaction showing on my debit card. I was unsure of what this transaction was, so I wanted to call in to the service center on a Sunday to find out. Low and behold, they were not open. I don't know if I caught them at a bad time, a bad day, or whatever, but if I am having issues with my banking and my money, I want to be able to solve it right away. That being said, aside from that one experience, I love knowing they reimburse my ATM fees and their interest rates are higher than most of the bigger banks.
