Great Service

Posted by: MiaD | Dec 7, 2015

I love PrimeWay! I know that may sound a little crazy to say about a bank, but they make my life easy. I can automate everything: my check is direct deposited, my bills are scheduled to pay automatically & I was able to set up notices they are about to pay so I never overdraw my account & I am never late. The app is awesome & I can make deposits their too. I just had someone take money out of 2 different ATMs - even though I had my debit card in my possession. I called them, filled out an emailed form & they gave me a new card & had the money back in my account the next day. I was expecting that to be a nightmare but they were kind and efficient.

Great Customer Service

Primeway makes banking easy! With locations all around Houston, and the numerous shared branches, as well as their user friendly online banking I am able to manage my accounts with ease.

Over the last 8 years, we have financed three vehicles all with the same loan officer, Tony Allman. Tony has made the process convenient with quick turn around with documents. Anytime I have a question about my accounts, I drop an email and usually receive a response within the hour.

Something I have noticed about Primeway that is rare these days...the employees- they stay! It's nice to see familiar faces when you go in to a branch, they make you feel like you are with friends. The employees are happy and friendly.

AMAZING!!!! What A Fantastic Group Of People!

I've been with PrimeWay for a little over a year and the experience just keeps getting better. What an awesome group of people to work with. They genuinely care about what's best for you and bend over backwards to help you. I became a single mom recently and they helped me consolidate my debt and manage my expenses.

My grandmother passed over Thanksgiving and Tiffany Poole at the Heights stayed late to help us close a loan. She was so busy and still made us a priority and the whole process was simple, easy, quick and just relieving for myself and my family.

I also bank at Woodforest and it's a night and day experience. At a bank, you're a customer, but at a credit union, THIS credit union, you're family. They also do tons of events and contests for the community, asking for nothing in return. Proud member of PrimeWay FCU. :) Amazing!

Former Cameron Now Pwfcu Member!

I was a Cameron member and now a current Primeway member. I have financed a boat, car and even my now current car loan. I have had a few late payments while working out of state and managed to get back on track. Never had an issue with it. I knew I was late on my part. I do my payments calling in the customer service number and end up paying the check by phone fee. My family and a few co workers have Primeway and a few complain about easy stuff, and for the most I am happy Primeway bought out Texas1. They were ssooo tricky & not to mention the "down low" loans. Heard a worker who had a crappy credit and got a % of 3.5 when he would have had more of a 15%, and all because he was a friend of a friend of a worker there. So whatever with those former Texas1 people. Some are mad because Primeway isn't as sneaky as Texas1, and hey, if people get negative/overdraft fees on a constant bases don't you think the credit union has a right to make money off fees as far as I've seen it's fair. You have a free "free" checking account and they don't make money off an account like banks. That's what some don't understand, that the credit union is NOT A BANK!! Anyone who is an older man hitting their 60s and still freely believe Primeway is okay. They got a few items/ things to upgrade, but so far I can not complain.
