Very Good Customer Service

I opens an account with Sun east federal credit union the week before Christmas because of their cd special (3.5% for 27 months). after I got accepted and could not figure out how to fund the account through their website. So I called their CR and she was helpful but said I could not initiate a transfer from their website. Also told me that I needed to fund the account by Dec. 26th or she(Melissa) could not honor the 27 month cd special. I was upset because it was Saturday the 22nd when she told me this information, so I knew that I could not initiate a transfer and get the funds into the account by that date because of the Holiday (Christmas). So I started the process anyway and left an email through their bank about this situation. I received an email back from Samatha (from call center lead) on dec 26th that she would help. So she said she would honor the cd special when she got the funds. My bank had deducted the funds from my account( December 24th) and they were on hold to be accepted from sun east. They were accepted and sun east honored their special thanks to Samatha.

Bad Reviews A-Plenty - For A Good Reason

After draining me, out of all my personal information, including my ACH information and permission, my new account was denied with no reason, I would say look somewhere else

Absolutely Terrible Customer Service

Application process is ridiculous and cannot get anyone on the phone who can discuss your application. Would highly recommend avoiding this CU

Refused Account

Posted by: |

I called them today to inquire about a new account. The system told me I was number 51 of the number of people on hold. I entered my number to receive a call back. Got a call back like 4 hours later. Apparently these people are overloaded with requests to open new accounts and cannot handle any more because I have a good credit score and don't owe any bank any money. The application process is pretty long and tedious. You have to open a savings first and then apply for a CD. They want people to wire the funds in. No ACH. Judging by the number of people who have applied in the reviews, I'm beginning to doubt that they accept anyone at all and are just accepting applications so people can donate money to their cause which is the only way to join if you don't live in the vicinity.
