PSECU Add-On Feature For CD's Is Still Available - 8/23/2019

Just opened a new 36 month CD and the add-on feature remains available for all PSECU CD's. Ken reported on August 20, 2019 review/post that "the add-on feature is no longer available." PSECU allows add-ons as long as they are setup within the first 30 days of account initiation. It requires that a set dollar amount at specific time frames (weekly, bi-monthly, monthly) be established. The add-on amount may be decreased or concluded at any time during the term, just not increased.

Great Bank So Far

Posted by: tcapple | Aug 27, 2019

-Very fast membership application process.
-Free checking and saving account with free checks and atm fee reimbursement.
-Flawless customer services
-Competitive rate for CD currently

There are downsides that don't bother me:
-Will do soft pulls on Chexsystem and Experian for first time membership applicants.
-Websites and mobile app layouts are quite complicated and requires time to get used to.
-Security limits on many things: mobile check deposit limit of $1000/day. I got locked out from the online account because I accessed it too many times.


Great bank overall !

My Experience with PSECU

In the summer of 2003 I opened a checking and savings account with PSECU. My main reason behind it was that it was the only ATM available on campus where I was attending college. I loathed fees and wanted to avoid them if at all possible. I didn't quite understand at the time that PSECU was an online only institution. A representative was at the university to help setup and open new accounts. Over the years I've found myself rather pleased with the fact that I made such a decision, even though it wasn't really researched at the time. With the growth of the internet, I was able to watch PSECU expand into areas that I never would have imagined a decade prior. I remember depositing a check online for the first time and mailing it in to them. I remember downloading the mobile app the first time that it became available. I remember depositing my first check through the same mobile app and the amazement that came with the idea that I no longer had to waste postage to mail it in.

Aside from the breakthrough technology, PSECU has offered a lot of other benefits, many of which they helped to pioneer. They waive a portion of your ATM fees each month. You can get up to $20/month waived if you have direct deposit into their checking account. This comes in very handy if you happen to move away from a convenient ATM location. The also offer automatic transactions that you can set up. This comes in both the form of Bill Payer as well as moving money between various accounts. For the longest time I used this function to automatically move money from my checking to savings account after each pay day. They also offer other things such as e-statements and forms, although most forms must still be printed out and mailed. Overall I have loved banking with PSECU and look forward to all the new things they have in store for us.

Worth Keeping Our Accounts, Even Living Far Away

Posted by: gopens | Jun 4, 2013

PSECU is a wonderful financial institution.  Their customer service has done an excellent job handling occasional issues over the past 10 years we've been with them.  For example, when an internet service provider (ISP) charged our credit card for a service we never received, I spent several hours on the phone with the ISP and they would not refund the money.  One call to PSECU and 20 minutes later, PSECU credited the disputed amount back to me and said they would take care of working things out with the ISP.  I never heard anything more and didn't care about it, because PSECU had already made things right with us immediately.  

We now live in California--the nearest branch is in PA--and we've stayed with them for our primary checking and savings accounts because their online banking is phenomenal!  Could not give a higher recommendation!

Nice credit union

My husband and I have had excellent experiences working with PSECU. This is despite the fact that that we do not have a brick and mortar credit union to go to. Their customer service has been exceptional, and they make it super easy to do long distance banking. They reimburse fees for ATM withdrawals that are taken at other institution's ATMs. One time we had to pay cash for a large purchase, and customer service at PSECU made it super easy by just removing the $300 withdrawal restriction, so we could easily get the cash we needed at the ATM. There aren't any charges for their checks, and we've been with them a long time with no complaints. They've kept up to date with technology, so it's easy to deal with them online, or calling their customer service.

PSECU Add-On Feature For CD's Is Still Available

Percussed   |  
Just opened a new 36 month CD and the add-on feature remains available for all PSECU CD's. Ken reported on August 20, 2019 review/post that "the add-on feature is no longer available." PSECU allows add-ons as long as they are setup within the first 30 days of account initiation. It requires that a set dollar amount at specific time frames (weekly, bi-monthly, monthly) be established. The add-on amount may be decreased or concluded at any time during the term, just not increased.

PSECU CD's With Add-On Option

Percussed   |  
Strongly encourage PESCU members to open a 4 Year (2.75 APY) or 5 year (3.0 APY) CD before they lower these offerings. The nice feature with all PSECU CD's is the ability to have a specific amount added in at a pre-determined time frame (weekly, bi- weekly, monthly, etc.) As an example, this add-on option allows the customer to open a 5 year CD at 3% and add-on a set amount throughout the term on a regular pre-established time frame. With CD rates expected to continue to drop for perhaps years, the guarantee of 3% money would be a solid option to consider. Another nice feature, the add-on amount can be lowered or discontinued at any time, just not increased. These are my go to CD's in a decreasing rate environment such as we are now seeing. Better hurry as rates are expected to lower any day now by my guestimates.
