Loooooove Space City CU!

Posted by: LoMas | Jun 2, 2016

I absolutely love Space City. Going into the branch is like going to visit family. They know my name, ask me about my children and family, and are ALWAYS friendly.

Because they keep up with me and my family, they are able to offer me things that I don't think of. I came in to get a car loan for my daughter and they reminded me that they have a partnership with an insurance company. Their company saved me money on my rates so adding a teenager wasn't as harmful on my wallet as I thought it was going to be.

Plus Space City has all the cool features of a "big bank" like a mobile app where you can taking a picture of your check to deposit it.

If you like personable service where people know your name and are genuinely concerned about you and your financial well-being, this is the place for you! Thanks Space City for looking out for me and my family!

Space City CU Rocks!

Watch Out For Fees

started to join, then saw their fees. $5 a month unless you jump through several hoops. Kind of a GOTCHA pricing structure. Will go elsewhere.

Space City Credit Union, Far Worse Rates Than Ally Bank

Posted by: DDD | Apr 23, 2016

The rates are horrible, locations in ghetto areas, service lackluster. Many better alternatives. Online banks with free ATM's pay rates 10x higher like AllyBank.com

Space City savings 0.10%
Ally Bank 1.00%
Thats 10x as much at Ally Bank compared to Space City CU!

Space City money market checking 0.25%
Ally Bank money market checking 0.85% which is more than 3x as much!

Space City cd's 6 month 0.25%
Ally Bank cd's 6 month 0.60% which is more than twice as much!

Space City cd 60 month 1.76%
Ally Bank cd 60 month 2.00%

Ally Bank, an online bank doesn't have branches, but that doesnt matter since they reimburse for ATM fees, allow you to take a picture of checks to deposit, saving you time from driving to a branch, and gives you free envelopes to mail in deposits if you dont want to deposit the checks online.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. Space City Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
