Great Customer Service

Posted by: |

I joined AlaskaUSA 40 years ago, in the Philippines. Yes, they had a branch there. I have never lived in Alaska, Arizona or California, and have not set foot in a branch office in nearly 40 years. They have extended hours, to accommodate their far flung customers. I use UltraBranch and Bill Pay to pay my bills, as I am often overseas or out of town. My bills are paid automatically, except for my water bill that varies. I have never had a problem when I've called in. Reps were polite, knowledgeable and took care of my concerns right away.
If you read the low ratings, bear in mind that this is a very large credit union, and the poor reviews represent less than 1% of their members. Also many of the low raters admit they are over 90 days late paying. What did they expect? Free money?

Best Credit Union We Know In Seattle Area

Posted by: |

We have banked here at the Northgate branch trouble-free for about 7 years now. Some banks are just so cold to you, and you can tell the workers are only there for their hours, not concerned if you deposit 20K or 200k, (like Sound in Shoreline...but that's another story). Barbara remembers our name and even if we were out of state for a year, she still remembers us and brings us into her office to ask our needs; and it's a normal and courteous chat, not just business. She represents AlaskaUSA to us, it's not always the best returns, but a contact like her is important too.

My savings account at Alaska Fed Credit Union

I have been a customer of Alaska Federal Credit Union Bank for over 5 years. The service is great and convenient, since I have a Navy Federal Credit Union ATM close to where I live in Coronado. I can make regular deposits and an occasional withdrawal when needed without having to drive long distances to a Bank or ATM. When I decided to purchase a vehicle I used their services due to their lowest interest rate. Overall I am very pleased to have Alaska FCU as my Savings Bank.


Opened a CD and savings account about two weeks ago..The service member was told that I lived 2.5 hours away so it was imperative that I receive and ATM card so that I could deposit funds into my savings or open more CDs without having to travel or use the internet (don't do finances over the PC)..Went on a trip the following week expecting the ATM card to be delivered before leaving or while vacationing..

Expectations however were sadly NOT fulfilling..I returned to find no ATM card...Called the 24 hr. service number... Waited on the phone for over an hour...Tried calling the branch number twice... both times having to leave a return call message to which NOBODY responded to.. Once again called the 20 hr. service number to have to wait on the phone for 20 minutes to get a human rep.... Frustration was the operative condition... He "said" he couldn't reorder the ATM card because the application was never filled out in the first place when I opened the accounts.. and that I would have to have the application sent to me in "snail mail".. You can understand my frustration..
Instead I had a relative with 80K in savings talk to the branch manager on my behalf... She assured me, when I called her, that I COULD get the ATM card without the application through "snail mail"

But this should not have been a problem to begin with..If I could give negative stars
