Not That Bad :-)

Posted by: |

Reading all the negative reviews, I feel bad for PSCU.

Actually their service is fine; they answered all my questions timely. The recent event was concerning the cancellation of my debit card since I have not used it for a while. They quickly sent the new debit card to me followed by password.

I do not like their RCA package (4%, only $7.5K; only one account allowed). They used to be much more generous.

I do not use their other services, e.g., loan, credit cards. But I assume it will be similar to those of RCA services.

Anyhow, PSCU went out their ways to read the reviews here and responded positively to them. That is much better than most other credit unions/banks.

I would suggest that we can work with the credit union patiently should issues arrise and afford PSCU an opportunity to make corrections and improvement accordingly.

Denied Kasasa Bonuses

Posted by: |

I think this is a new tactic to avoid paying Rewards accounts bonuses. I have been paying my cable bill for months and suddenly it was changed to a "bill payment" by "the system". Here's what I said but still have not got any final word.

Thank you for messaging Pelican State Credit Union!

Due to change in systems, some online-initiated and recurring debit card purchases, such as Sudden Link, are registering as "Bill Payment Withdrawal" rather than "Debit Card Withdrawal." This has caused the reports to not include these transactions in your 15 required debit card transactions.

We are currently investigating this new reporting and will let you know once this is resolved!

In the meantime, we recommend continuing making your 15 transactions, not including the Bill Payment Withdrawals.

We will let all of our members know at once when this is resolved.
Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

Poor Customer Services By Phone , So Upset !!!

Posted by: |

I am wondering why those representatives at the call center this week have been avoiding to help me with depositing money from my other institution debit cards to my Pelican checking and savings accounts. Some of them didn't even know how to do it. Some of them made me wait for very long on the line until I gave up waiting and having to hand up the calls. Some of them had bad attitudes on me as if I were wasting their times. Today, I have to say that they made me feel so upset, and there's no reason for me to stand it anymore. I have just decided to move ALL of my money from my Pelican checking account to my another institution account. If you don't need me as your customer anymore, just let me know and I would just go. Don't ever try to treat me poorly like that.

Worst Credit Union I've Been With.

Pelican State Credit Union constantly puts my account negative and I have to call for my money back, which is also a hassle being that “top employees” are difficult to deal with(rude)! I’ve had to call PSCU on numerous occasions about money being taken out of my account. Thursday I had my card in “locked” status and could not unlock my card until 12 midnight. Right now my card is in “locked” status and I am unable to unlock it, yet my account balances keep changing without my doing. It’s like they are stealing from me and confusing me with the transactions so that I can’t tell but something is up. When I go to the app to turn the card on, it states “card status update failed on our end, try again” but still nothing changes! They’ve had to refund hundreds of dollars to me because of them putting 6 NSF fees on my account at once. Definitely will be changing my direct deposit and switching banks! I can’t even put fuel in my car, it’s pathetic.
