I have had nothing but good experiences with Greater Iowa Credit Union and often recommend it to others. The service in their branches has always been impeccable, and I have found that working with them is hassle-free compared to most banks I have dealt with.
The only odd thing about GICU was that, to get a loan with them, I had to open a separate savings account. This just required a $5 deposit, so it was not a big problem, but just something I needed to remember to close once the loan was paid. The bank employee I spoke to said it was so that I was a member of the credit union. Other than that, it was simply a trouble-free loan for me.
Horrible people. Will be closing my account with them ASAP! I have been with this bank for more than 3 years and they have turned me up and down at processing a loan for more than 2 weeks. I sent them everything they needed and they treated me like they were doing me an undeserved favor. Horrible bank! Moving to US bank!
Think twice before getting an account here. If you move and have to use a different bank they will take money from you then leave a lame excuse for the charges. A soon as I put money in my new bank. They started adding 25.00 charges everytime the card was used. Then they only gave me half the money back. There is nothing great about the Greater Iowa Credit Union!
