Mountain America Credit Union is a Utah-based, federally chartered credit union that serves hundreds of thousands of members through numerous branches located in the American West. The credit union provides a range of financial services and products, from deposit accounts and investment products to consumer and small business loans.

On its personal banking side, MACU offers checking, savings, money market, term deposit, and IRA accounts, as well as youth products. Its free checking account offer comes with free online banking, bill pay, and a MACU Visa debit card. The credit union’s saving account provides easy access to funds, a daily compounded interest rate, and quick fund transfer capabilities. Money market accounts have a minimum balance requirement and offer the earnings of a CD with the flexibility of a savings account. Term deposits functions as CDs and are available in term lengths ranging from 6 months to 5 years. MACU has a section of their website devoted to youth products and games. One account designed for teenagers offers quarterly member drawings for nice prizes.

Mountain America Credit Union online banking provides easy account integration into Quicken or other financial management software so members can budget and plan out their finances. The web-based banking platform also allows members to transfer funds, view copies of cleared checks, deposit checks from home, and pay bills. MACU’s mobile banking apps allow the same functions and provide a convenient and quick for members to manage their accounts on the run.

MACU was originally formed in 1934 as the Salt Lake Telephone Employees Credit Union in order to serve employees of the Utah-based telephone company. 50 years later, in 1984, the credit union merged with Postal Workers Credit Union and changed its name to Mountain America Credit Union to better reflect its growing membership geography. The credit union is headquartered in West Jordan, Utah.

I'm happy with MACU

Posted by: lloydberry | Mar 1, 2018

In fact, I'm MORE than pleased with the credit union I currently belong to. My paycheck from my part time job is direct deposited into my account, and even though payday is technically Thursday, the money is always deposited into my account on Wednesday evening. It makes a big deal to me as I usually do my grocery shopping on Thursday mornings.

In addition, this credit union offers a "perk" to members that does not penalize you too severely if you should overdraw your account. The fee is $20 per transaction that you overdraw, and the daily amount you are charged is capped at $100. I have not had to use this feature yet, but it is comforting to know it's available to me if an emergency should arise. Plus, you are given 30 days to pay it back, which I imagine would be a great relief if you suddenly found yourself unemployed.

Finally, the credit union is open until 7PM, which is a great feature if you work during the day. And, I have never had a bad or uncomfortable experience while dealing face to face with one of their employees...

I have been with my bank for almost a decade. I continue to stay with them because they have convenient locations and their customer service is amazing. I had overdrafted in my checking account after I had miscalculated my balance one time. I had over $80 in overdraft fees. I called them up and explained it was a honest mistake and they reversed the charges. This is the reason I will continue to stay with them.

Be Patient: Ask Many Questions

The 5 year cd rate for out of staters is worth the trouble: Do not deposit into your local credit union share account and transfer it to them as they recommend to fund your cd. Because the IRS considers it a cash transaction. The reps think they can do an ACH transaction (no can do) its only for bill pay. Have a supervisor produce a deposit slip email it to you and mail a check to them with it and wait like I am. We shall see!

Absolutely A Great C.U.

I would recommend this place any day of the week, in spite of a few shortcomings. On the whole the Customer service reps are extraordinarily friendly, with most able to help.

One shortcoming is their preferred mailing address to send the $ to fund a CD. My experience is that mailing it to one of the branches in West Jordan produces more rapid results, whereas one time it took them 3 days after racing my check to credit it to my CDs. I was told that they received so many checks that it took them from Monday to Wednesday to get caught up. Hmm, I thought. Does this seem plausible. My conclusion was that it was possible, but extremely unlikely, that is unless only one person was doing the work.
