A Great, Local Institution

Posted by: NEPAGuy | Oct 17, 2016

When I originally opened a checking account as a teenager, I went with a large, international bank. I assumed that this was the best decision since they had location all across the globe, and I thought I would always have access to money. However, I quickly became sick of all of the fees they charged. I decided to switch to a credit union, and I made a great decision when I started an account at PennEast FCU. There is only a $10 requirement for opening either a checking and savings account, and I have never been charged a monthly fee. I like that I am able to access many ATMs that aren't theirs, and not be charged a penalty fee. (As an example, I took a trip overseas last summer, and I was able to use ATMs without getting charged.) Their staff has always been friendly and helpful whenever I've had a problem. My only complaint would be that I recently had to re-order some checks, and the entire process was quite costly. 2 boxes of checks, and shipping came out to around $40. I wish they would find a new printer for their checks.
