The service has always been great. We really like the updated website and the information we're looking for is easy to find. Their online banking and bill pay is user friendly making our account accessible 24/7. We look forward to many more happy years.....and thank you for making our banking experience a good one!

Learning To Like

My credit union mereged with Sound, and at first it was rough, and I did not like it. Things have gotten better, and there has been no reason to consider switching banks lately. I have had experience with bad banks, but thankfully Sound is not one of them.

Online Portal Is Frustrating; Transfers Canceled Without Notice. It Shouldn't Be This Hard.

I've been with Sound Credit union for a few years. It's not been a horrible experience, but it's not been great.

The online portal is hard to use. 2FA is required for every sign in, requiring a phonecall with a robotic voice that takes forever (Google Authenticator is supposed to be an option but fails to work).

At times, the voice option has gone done, meaning I'm locked out of the portal.

Tellers at the banks I've been to have been nice, but I also had someone flat out refuse to see if they had a dollar coin in their till.

Latest frustration was a change in their system for external transfers. It stopped all ongoing transfers I had, meaning I missed payments to others. There was no notification about this new system, or that they'd just erase what was already setup. This happened to another person I know with SCU.

Looking at another credit union now.

Sound Credit Union Will Retain Your Debit Card No Notice

Posted by: |

A credit union that will retain your ATM debit card with no notice whatsoever. The customer should be given a chance to resolve their account issues with this credit union in order to reopen their ATM debit card rather than wasting time and resources to be issued a new one. This is absolutely unacceptable, and should be federally illegal!
