Decent Credit Union With Poor Online Banking

Posted by: dau674 | Aug 1, 2013

If you are looking for a friendly local credit union with good loan rates, nice ATM's, and don't mind a poor online experience then I would recommend FCFCU, but if you prefer online banking avoid FCFCU.

I have had two checking accounts, a savings account, and a mortgage with Fort Campbell Federal Credit union for over two years.  I have also refinanced and paid off a vehicle loan with them. 

The mortgage and loan rates are excellent.

The interest rates on the deposit accounts are very low but that is pretty much normal. 

The tellers are always friendly.

The ATM's were recently upgraded to allow deposits by check or cash (which is a very nice feature). 

There is a monthly fee for using online bill pay.

The online banking is very poor.  They recently tried to upgrade it and most of the features were removed or broken in the process.  The security features were upgraded making it impossible to link the account to any other website or software for automatic updates and even when you log in to the website manually to download trasactions the only working option is to download a QFX file for Quicken.  Customer support is clueless when it comes to any issue involving online banking.

Call Center Wait Time

Posted by: lizward | Jan 25, 2016

The wait time to talk to a representative at this bank ridiculous!!! I have called several times and the wait time is AT LEAST 20 MINUTES! It's aggravating and I don't have time to wait that long when waiting to make a purchase at a store!!
