I Like It, As Advertised

Good rewards system (2% interest checking). The staff are friendly. Been using this for about a year. ATM rewards have happened without a hitch. I use ACH from a different bank which quals for direct deposit. I do a bunch of $1 payments for my internet payment which counts as my required transactions. Overall, good stuff and I'm happy. No issues and convenient locations for me in Birmingham, AL.

Overdraft Fees And Transfer Problems

Posted by: |

Please tell me why Legacy only allows 6 online transactions per month? If you have computer banking why only 6? Also why do they transfer 3.00 at a time from your savings when you are about to overdraw and then charge you 3.00 to do it? Is this a ploy to use up your 6 transactions because even if you have money in your savings to cover any overdraw they will not transfer any more money after 6 transfers have been made(these include any you have already made) and will then start charging you 36.00 per overdraw regardless of how much money you have in savings which is supposed to be linked to your checking. I really don't want a useless 3.00 transfer if it's going to use up one of my 6 transactions and I'm going to be charged 3.00 for the service. I discussed this practice with my coworkers and no one could believe the way they handle their online banking.The consensus was why have online banking if it's so limited and how ineffective their overdraft protection was. I'm starting to wonder if this isn't just another way for them to insure fees without being as obvious a bigger banking  institutions as they tout themselves as being smaller and more about their customers. If they were really about their customers they would figure out a better solution for their overdraft protection and their computer banking.

Bought My Credit Union, Changed CD Terms!

Posted by: |

This is a cross-review with the credit union that Legacy bought out - 1st Resource Credit Union in Birmingham, AL:

I have a couple of certificates with 1st Resource. They are ADD-ON certificates. However, Legacy credit union CHANGED THE TERMS. No longer am I able to add funds to these existing CDs per customer service.

I've read on this site that this happens from time to time. If they change the terms then I should AT LEAST be able to break the CD without penalty.

Legacy Community Federal Credit Union

Posted by: |

Legacy Community Federal Credit Union in Birmingham, Alabama has been my credit union for over 25 years. I have had my paychecks direct deposited there since I graduated college in 1992. Legacy offers local banking with very reasonable fees, and the atmosphere inside the main branch is welcoming and is a very relaxing environment in which to do my business.

The one drawback that I have with Legacy is the terrible rate of return on deposit accounts (Savings, Checking, Money Market, CDs, IRAs). That is why I do not save large sums of money at Legacy Federal Credit Union, preferring, instead, to utilize online banking opportunities. In other words, I just use Legacy for clearing my checks and paying my bills. All other savings are then funneled to my online savings accounts.
