Happy customer

Posted by: Steph1223 | Jan 11, 2015

I have been a happy customer of NASA federal credit union for years. Initially I was concerned with the fact that there are no locations nearby enough to go to, but I have not had any issues doing my banking online with them. When I have a check to deposit, it is easy enough to take a picture of it and deposit it using my phone without even having to travel anywhere. It has been quick and easy to make any transfers as well as authorizing larger purchases with my accounts. In every instance in which I've had to call customer service, they have been friendly, understanding, and I've hung up the phone being very pleased with the experience. I made an error with my checking account at one point, and after a quick phone call, they offered to refund a fee I was charged from my own error. Overall, I am very happy with this credit union.

What Does It Mean, Complimentary Membership To NSS

"Membership is open to anyone through a complimentary membership to the National Space Society." I don't see anything on their sites that it's free, you have to join. I wrote them and it's still confusing.

NASA Credit Union Be Careful

If you open an account here they do a HARD credit pull which lowers your credit score.


No! Just NO! (I have other words I prefer to use) This credit union has been a PAIN to work with. Their customer service is unbelievably horrible. You don't get put on hold for 40 minutes for someone to grab the call and hang up on you. That's just not right.
We financed our '06 Toyota Tacoma from them 3 months ago, out of state. We called to get the title sent to our local DMV for registration, address and number given to them. They sent it to the WRONG damn DMV nearly 700 miles away. I'm in California, if you're not familiar with the California Department of Motor Vehicles, you are lucky. So anyways, we called again and again, countless hours on hold just to be told that I have to get it! ME! For their mistake. This is extremely frustrating. They don't realize how something so simple was made nearly impossible and difficult. After these experiences for the last three months, I am definitely refinancing my auto loan through my local credit union.
