TIC Customer Since 1985

Posted by: |

I love TIC. Their rates are always a fraction better than the competition because they are member owned. Their credit card is one of the cheapest around, with no annual fee and a low interest rate. The only downside is that in this case you don't get what you don't pay for. Try to buy something in the back of Walmart and then go to the front checkout, and you will find your card frozen. Try to call to get your access restored outside short bankers hours five days a week and you will find that the office that can do that for you is closed. No 24/7 service. On the other hand, TIC offers a prepaid credit card in place of Traveler's Checks. Because it is prepaid, beware: no one has a motive to watch out for fraudulent use. However, that works two ways. No one is going to tell you not to use it twice on one visit to a Walmart. Just don't let anyone else get a hold of it, because since no one is watching, anyone with a Money card in hand can use it right up. The only thing that might hang them up is if someone asks for their ID :-) so be SURE to put on the back of the card with a Sharpie marker, ASK4ID!!!

TERRIBLE Company To Do Business With

Posted by: |

Kinetic took over the MEA FCU a couple of years ago. At that time we had an active checking account and a car loan. We no longer had a savings account and the savings accounts for our minor children were Also cancelled. Kinetic took it upon themselves to add our children, who no longer lived with us, to our checking account. They took money out of our checking to open a savings account, that we no longer had or wanted. On top of that they started pulling out the car payment out of our checking without approval. The payments were not past due and the time limit given before incurring a late charge had not past. They had no regard to the fact that they were deliberately causing the account to bounce and incurring additional charges. The Kinetic FCU refused to remove our children from our account without them travelling to the same city and state location to have them sign a form to remove them off of our account. At this time we were going to pay off the car loan on 4/11/19 but on 4/9/19 they pulled the payment out of our checking account without authorization. Kinetic FCU is an awful place to do business! I wouldn't recommend ANYONE to put their money there. We are pulling out our business with Kinetic and would advise others to do the same

I Had Planned To Bank Here. But...

I don't do this often, I understand that at most businesses most of the people you see and talk to are the low CSR's and have no say in how the business is run. But when I come across a business that blatenly lie or give you a run around it really makes me mad.
Thursday I went to the Kinetic Credit Union next to Peachtree Mall. I get my paycheck on a reloadable debit card every week and use Kinetic's ATM to withdrawl it. I ran my card and tried to withdraw the cash. The ATM said that there was an issue and the transaction wasn't completed. No money came out. I then got a text from my card saying that $X was withdrawn and I had a end balance of $X. I went inside to talk to a teller and they said to call my card company. I thanked them and left. I called my card and after hours on hold they told me that I needed to get a fax number and email for the company that services the ATM. So I call Kinetic. They told me that they service their own ATM's and we needed to just have the transaction cancelled by my card company. So back to hold. The card company then told us that the bank had the money held due to issues with the ATM. The man said that all they would need to do is reset the ATM. So I went back to the bank to ask them to do the reset. The bank manager told us they couldn't do it because, contrary to the information I got the day before, a outside company services the ATM. I asked for the information on the ATM company. The bank manager stared at me and refused to answer any more questions. We then took a look at the ATM and got the companies name. Dean called them and was told that "Yes it's something that happens all Kinetic has to do is call us and We can have it fixed by the end of the day." Dean got the number and called Kinetic. The lady said "yeah we could call but they would charge a service fee so no we won't call them. It should work it's way out in a week or so. You'll just have to wait."
My husband and I had planned to open an account with Kinetic but after this show of the worst customer service. I have ever seen I will not be. I am still waiting on paycheck thanks to there faulty ATM. It has been 5 days I have Bill's that have come unpaid and my family is suffering because of it.

Poor Rates

Nothing has really improved since the name change and merger.
Been with these folks for decades, while slowly moving assets elsewhere....also found it funny, the one poster stated they never got a phone call. That is generally the case, but they are EXTREMELY swift when the penalty benefits them. AND on top of that they REQUIRE updates to phone #s email addresses physical location, but never use this to actually contact you with a problem.....sad sad sad. But heu, Happy New Year.

Run Away!!!

I have been with several banks and this is by far the worst. I have been with Kinetic for about 5 months and have had many problems. First I used their "Switch Agent" to make switching my bills easier, big mistake. After wasting a day filling out info on their website they never switch most of my bills causing me to go in to collections. No one ever called or email me to follow up as promised. After straightening out that mess out myself, I received a notice about 3 months later from one of my credit cards saying I was in collections. I had an auto monthly payment I set up myself with kinetic. I checked my online bill pay and it said the payments were sent, but my credit card company never received the payments. After a couple of calls and a couple of hours at my bank they could not tell me where my payments went. They actually asked me for the account and address I put in the bill pay, they could not look this up for some reason. They asked me to email them the info when I got home. I called a couple hours later because I could not find the email link. They told me I needed to contact their 3rd party bill pay company. So I called them and they told me to call my branch back. I told them to forget it, this is not worth the $30 they lost. A few days later my husbands bill pay account was blocked because his checking account dropped below zero for a couple of hours. I immediately transferred money to cover this but the block remained and we received no notification, only finding out when he went in collections for bills unpaid. I have since switch all my bills to pay through a credit card while I frantically try to find another bank.
