Customer Service Has Been Outstanding

I moved an Ira from Stinkrony Bank to Nasa. After receiving the request fron Nasa, Stinkrony closed my account, ( no interest bearing ), and 22 days later got the funds to Nasa. Nasa offered without any prompt from me, to give me their newer/higher rate and also make it retroactive to make up for the funds lost due to Stinkrony. That's a bit above board for the current situation with bank failures. So I'm moving more funds there now as well.

Good And Sound Minded Bank

Posted by: |

NASA-FCU distinguishes itself as a good and sound minded bank for investor. They do what they stipulate and advertise, contrary to cesspool of banks operating on the margins of CFPD sanctions, against their own stipulated terms and disclosures, e.g., UFCU-Texas and Capital1.

Very Fast Approval At NASA FCU

Posted by: |

Applied online on a Friday around noon for a savings and 49 month CD joint account and was approved by Saturday morning. I then created my account online. There was no reason to snail mail them any information during this process.

NASA does not have a branch in AZ, but they do have CO-OP shared branches. I found one on their website that was open on a Saturday, so I went there and deposited a check to the savings account to fund both the savings and CD. When I got home the amount was shown on my account online. all within 24 hours of starting the process.

It took a few days for the check to clear. I had to call them to have them transfer the money from the savings to the CD so I could start accruing the interest of 4.75%. I could not accomplish it online because the deposit was being shown with a hold on the funds in the savings account. I called and the customer service rep was great and accomplished the task for me in minutes.

I talked to their customer phone line 3 times with questions, and each time was very pleasant experience. I liked that they tell you exactly how many customers are ahead of you on hold, and they update it every few minutes. Think the longest wait was maybe 15-20 minutes.

I was concerned that the CD rate would not be honored if it was not funded by Jan 31st, since that is what it said the limited offer was good until on their website. But they said that i had 10 days to fund it after approval. Looks like the offer is still valid now into February.


Duplicate post deleted by user. Gave 3 stars because of the rate. Knocked down 2 star because of the phone wait times for csr. 26 minutes today and website problems. Total wait and talk time over 50 minutes but CSR was very knowledgeable.
