I had been trying to better my credit score for a couple years but with credit card debt it’s hard to get them down to a balance that will impact a positive credit rating. I had went to Superior Choice Credit Union and got a debt consolidation and within 45 days my credit score jumped up over 115 points! Highly recommend the Rice Lake branch!!!

Great Checking Account Rate - Easy Opening

Posted by: |

Despite the CU having a branch in my home town, I hadn't heard of them until I saw a blurb on their high yield checking account. I went to call them and learn more, and found the local branch. I decided to go in and see the branch first hand and met the crew. Everyone was very nice, and I felt comfortable with them becoming a holding place for my savings. The next day I opened an account. The online process was 90% Ok, but due to a large number of account openings, it was going to take longer to do online and process my application, so I went back to the branch and within a half hour I was set up with my new accounts. I was able to easily set up automatic payments with a couple of utilities, and now I'm settling in and adding my deposits to fill up the account. As long as the rate stays great, this will be my new primary CU. In today's rate climate, you need to do yourself a favor and go where the yield is. There are banks and CU's with great rates all over the place. I now work with 4 of them. Top up your savings to the high limit of their good rate, and then go do the same at another place with a great rate to handle your overflow. If the upper limits aren't capped, you could stick with one place, but if they're going to cap you, you can live with that. Anyway, with a friendly staff and a good rate, this place earned me as s new customer.

Customer Service

My goodness, it is it hard to get a loan through these guys. It just pummeled my credit score trying to get one. It's a good thing they have great customer service.

Rogue Bank

100% a Rogue Bank.

Wish I could give them a negative star.

Banks like superior choice CU are the example why Americans are behind on building better credit portfolio. They for some strange reasons are ignorant enough to harm their potential customers credit history for zero gain for themselves.

Here is my experience- i live in California found a high yield savings account that I was interested. Called their customer service for eligibility and was told getting ACC membership would let me become their customer which i purchased right away.

Filled an online form for bringing in 25k into the savings account I applied for. They got all my details including ssn like they take when you apply for a credit card.
They sent me an email and asked me ACC membership document, address proof document, driving license copy which I uploaded and sent them right away. And then sent me an email to come to their bank in Minnesota in person because they cannot approve me "virtually". These incompetents actually ran a hard inquiry while they always intended to decline me since I wasn't nearby their actual bank locations. Why can't they just specify that in eligibility criteria?

I would advice to stay far away from Superior choice credit Union.
