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.

Sun East Does A Hard Pull

I don’t understand why this Credit Union needs to do a hard pull on my credit to take my money for a savings account and a CD. It’s not like I’m taking out a loan, I’m giving them money for 27 months to loan out to others to make money. I give one star for the hard pull but the CSR I would give 5 stars.

Normally I Don't Have Anything Bad To Say...

...but this credit union releases a product with a good rate and does not have the intelligence/understanding that they may get applications from outside their area.
Their website does not state their eligibility clearly...their application does not reject out of state applicants and goes through to the fact, past the "Congratulations, you're accepted" note.
And then they send out the rejection email without stating any grounds for rejection. And, that email is so vague as to imply that a call may resolve the issue. It doesn't.
Very bad way to do business --the wasted my time and others as well. Bad on them.

As I stated yesterday, I was put through the ringer trying to open the 27 month 3.50% APY CD but after finally getting through the process with a supervisor, I was assured that the account would be opened.

However, today I received an email declining the application for geographic reasons. Their $10 charity is only open to certain east coast states, while I live in CA.

The supervisor yesterday claimed that the charity was available nationwide. Apparently, she is just as incompetent as the rest of their staff and their malfunctioning website.
