All around Winner

I recently joined the OAFCU, and my experience has been nothing less than stellar from the beginning. I have used many online banking and associated apps before, and these guys take the cake. Their check deposit feature is smooth, quick and effortless. Transferring from checking and savings accounts is a breeze and easy to decipher. Everything is quick and easy, the rates and services are the best i have ever encountered. And unique to them, not personally tried yet, but you can apply for a personal loan right from the mobile site. I would recommend to anyone

Great Credit Union!

I've been a member for most of my life and I've always been pleased with the service.  I plan to keep my money here in the future. Great rates on auto loans!


That said, there are some improvements that could be made (as of 9/13/10):

1) Interest Rates seem low compared with other credit unions and banks

2) Online banking system works, but could be improved.

3) Incompatible with Mint.com

4) Poor hours for members who work normal 9-5 jobs (only open from 8:30 to 5:30 M-F)
