Mediocre at best

I have been a client of Premier America Credit Union for a few years now and am honestly not very happy with them. I have a checking account and a savings account there, both of which require ridiculous minimum balances in order to avoid fees. Their products are not very competitive, they are pretty standard compared to other banks. They are also not very good about doing fee reversals. I had a returned check (through no fault of my own) a few weeks ago and was charged a $34 fee. When I called their customer service to ask about reversing the fee, their answer was a flat-out no. They treated me like an inconvenience and it made me really mad. I also do not care for their website or mobile app. I think they are both poorly designed and do not work well. Overall I am considering switching banks and would not recommend this credit union to others.

RUN DO NOT Walk ...Do NOT Stop and Collect $200 RUN !!. Okay here goes I Gave Them 1 Star Just Because They Answered Phone…Before opening up an account I called and verified that ACH Transfers would be allowed . I asked how much CSR said Unlimited. Went ahead and opened Savings account online , next day started ACH initiation process to Link the Credit Union to My Outside Savings Bank and also from a different Savings Bank Linking to Them. Upon verifying trial deposits I tried to move money in Either By Pushing Funds From the Outside Bank or Having CU Pull the Funds From My Outside Bank so that I could take advantage of their 3% CD... Problem was I was unable to transfer more than $20,000 a Month that's right a Month IN or OUT , Told Me They Would NOT Accept over 20,000 Coming In ?? WHAT !! Reached out to management said no way around this it was their vendor that they use for ACH's that set the limits… If I was a long-time customer There Vender Might Consider lifting or making limits higher ….Not quite believing what she just said I asked her to reach out to her manager which after 2 hours the reply came back the same. To Fund The 16 Month CD I could either Send Them a Check , PAY for a Wire Transfer, or have my Outside Bank Send Them a Check ???? as Life Goes On I find that You Just Can't Make this Stuff Up !!, Especially when you're going to open a 16 month CD...Needless to say I just pulled my initial deposit and they can have a nice day! , Oh and Buy The Way Read The Fine Print As They Have A Limit As To How Much Money You Can Open CD For……
