Working with the local branches of the franklin mint credit union has been great. They really compete against larger banks by offering low rates, small fees (if any) and the ability to hold a savings account without having to keep a minimum balance within the account. Working with FMFCU has allowed me to save money that I would have likely lost in typical bank fees and put more of those funds to a savings account. The staff are always polite and friendly as well and are always willing to help with any questions regarding current accounts or opening a new account. I will continue to bank with this company as they have treated me like a valuable customer.
I've been using Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union (FMFCU) as my primary bank for a little over a decade and it's been a positive experience overall. Back when I made an account there, its savings interest rates were around 7% for amounts up to $500 for its Super Saver accounts and around 3% for its larger Vacation/Holiday accounts (up to $2500), though the rates dropped off to less than 0.2% past those limits. Those were great interest rates even then. In the last few years, the interest rates on those accounts have dropped to 1.99%, which is still great for a bank/credit union during an era where extremely low interest rates are the norm. FMFCU's customer service is pretty good, though the ability to withdraw cash surcharge-free suffers if you travel outside of the Philadelphia area at all. FMFCU's web experience is acceptable and does what you need it to do, though it's nothing special. Its mobile app is not particularly good, however, and when I want to check my balances on my phone, I usually use the mobile web version instead of the app. My experience is positive overall. The one big complaint I have is the lack of the ability to send/deposit checks through the mobile app, but given its poor design, that might not be in the cards.
I have been a long time member of Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union, and there has never been a day that I have regretted my decision. While many friends and family complain about their high banking fees, Franklin Mint has always been kind and understanding in my dealings with them. Their customer service has always been stellar as well, although I'll admit most of the time their banking experience is so seamless that I do not have to contact them directly very often. If you're in the market for opening a new account or want to get away from big banks, they are a great opportunity to do so.
Disgusted. Poor customer service. No follow up. 3 instances of fraud in 6 months, and not so much as a call to tell mr anything. I had to find out on my own!. No promise of trying to better security or anything. And i have to do all of the leg work to get my own money back. Wonder when i get my paycheck from FMFCU for doing their work for them. 30 year member is going elsewhere today.
