14 Year Member

Been a member for 14 years have only good to say about them. I have in 14 years paid no fees, they have every service a bank has but it is free of significantly less expensive Credit card at 8%. Every year I get a portion of my Debit card use back as a deposit into my account. I actually make money off of having an account with them. That is because I am an owner of the CU as are all depositors no one can take them over and we get that as a dividend. Fantastic people. Recently we had to open an estate account for a deceased aunt and it was handled fast and very smoothly and very professionally.

Red Canoe

Posted by: |

I recently had a need to fire my bank and was looking into Red Canoe and another to replace them with. I ended up opening accounts with both as it was hard to choose between them. I fired the major bank as they had bought out my favorite bank and changed my free checking to their version which included a $15.00 per month fee.

It was important to me that my new bank didn't include "monthly" fees on my account. I am OK with the overdraft fees. Red Canoe had the perfect account and had several others.

She was very helpful and friendly and went over everything, including the accounts she knew I would not like. I have to keep a savings account open with them but it doesn't require activity. She was quick in setting it up. The checking account was just as quick and easy. I was impressed when she photo copied my drivers license, she took a black marker and marked over the license number. I brought in a phone statement for proof of residence and she only copied the front of the envelope with my address on it. Privacy is a big thing for them.

Everything she did was like that. Longview is not a big city but it isn't a small town either. I was treated like I was a member of a very small town where everyone knows and likes everyone else. I left feeling great. Nobody leaves a bank feeling great.

I have nothing bad to say about Red Canoe.

AVOID This Bank

Posted by: |

Honestly the worst banking experience I have EVER had in my life. I sent my car loan payment via bill pay (with documentation showing that the money was withdrawn from my account -before my due date), and due to either a system error on my primary bank's end, or a postal service delay, the payment arrived to Red Canoe late. They immediately reported this to all three credit bureaus (which is how I found out about the "late" payment in the first place), and my score dropped 117 points - I have never missed a car payment in my life. I am in the middle of buying a house. I called the bank multiple times to explain what happened, and there is "nothing they can do" and obviously could not care less. I absolutely cannot refinance this loan with another lender fast enough. Please, please, please AVOID THIS BANK. I will for sure be telling everyone I know (including the finance manager at the dealership who works with this place) to avoid at all costs.
