PSECU - Awesome CSR

Posted by: Hooked | Nov 15, 2019

I called PSECU today to set up the add-on feature to my CDs. It was at the end of the day in their CD department, but I was treated like I were their only customer. The CSR was thorough, patient and extremely pleasant. Very happy to park my money with this Credit Union.

PSECU Took The High Road...

Posted by: GerryB | Nov 14, 2019

...and I wanted to add my voice to the many that have expressed their admiration and gratitude. My wife and I spent the entirety of Friday 11/8 becoming members. We were approved in the late afternoon, too late for a same-day wire, but we initiated a wire transfer Friday evening to be executed on Tuesday morning. When we heard of the impending rate change on Saturday morning, we tried everything, even a mobile deposit (didn’t work). We’d have felt very burned if PSECU had left us in the cold—and we were well aware that that could happen. But PSECU acted honorably, in the best tradition of how America’s financial system *should* operate. I was reminded of Jimmy Stewart in “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Kudos to the management for a wise decision and to the tireless CSRs who put up with all of us. Reputation matters. PSECU is a five-star outfit.

Great Credit Union

Posted by: MikeJ | Oct 29, 2019

My wife and I love these people. We opened an account 10 years ago when my son started attending Lock Haven University. LHU is a PSAC university. Their CD rates are consistently higher than anybody else in our state and competitive across the nation. It is easy to transfer funds among accounts. Purchasing, rolling over, and cashing out CDs is very easy to do online. Customer service reps on the phone are knowledgeable and professional. We are loyal members and plan to be for a long time.

Knowlegable, Professional, And Curtious Representatives

PESCU representatives have been excellent in providing help and accurate answers/information during a time of high demand due to an excellent CD promotion. I opened two accounts and appreciate very much the hard work and courteous, professional attention provided to me by this credit union.

Attractive CD Rates

I wanted to make my fellow DA readers aware that PSECU (easy membership) is still offering a 2 yr CD paying 3% and a 3 yr CD paying 3.25% APY.

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.
