There Is A Reason GTE Has So Many Horrible Reviews

A number of years ago I tried to open an account with them, It was for one of their really great deals, After dealing with the absolutely horrible customer service (which included them not following up on my application without me calling and reminding them) as well as having to jump through incredible hoops to open an account, I decided to I would not trust them with any of my life savings. In their case, I would rather earn less at a CU I can trust.
