For the most part I use this account for my direct deposit, but I have had an account for over 30 years. I am the son of two teachers and was able to get an account there before they opened their services to the general public. At that time, there was only one branch, and now there are several. The upshot is that I had very personal service from this bank for many years, sometimes not even needing personal identification because the tellers knew who I was.
The bank has grown now, and does a pretty good job for me. They are less willing to extend credit to me than I thought they should be, but I can usually get around that. I was able to get a car loan there by having my wife co-sign (she is baking with the institution she grew up using), but they would not grant a loan for debt reconciliation.
I have had a checking and savings account at Tulsa Teachers Credit Union for over 3 decades. Since my parents were teachers, I was able to join as a teenager before membership was open to the general public. I mostly bank online these days, using direct deposit from my job to my checking account. Using the drive through window, I withdraw cash every month to put in my wife's account rather than writing her a check. I can also monitor my mother's money market account since she had me put on it with power of attorney. I find the online access is fairly easy, although using a mobile device is not always an effective way to bank, for me anyway.
I really like Tulsa Teachers Credit Union. My family and I have been banking with them for several years. They are located close to my work which makes it very convenient. Their checking accounts are comparable with the big banks in our area. While they don't have a great savings rate, it's better than a lot of the banks I see. The people are very friendly, especially with my children. Any time I've had a question, the people there are helpful and take as long as I need to make sure I understand everything. Their online banking system is adequate for my needs. I especially like to check my account balance online. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone who qualifies for membership.
