I joined TwinStar Credit Union in 2011 when I moved back to the Washington area. I selected Twin Star over WSECU based on better interest rates on both checking accounts and loan programs. I have been with TwinStar ever since. I am an active user, with both online and in person interactions on a weekly basis.
I have both a savings and checking account with Twin Star. I get a pretty good interest rate on my checking, I think it is 2.25%apr each month as long as I use my debit card 12 times. Because I am a big saver, I earned over $300 in interest last year, which was nice.
The online system for TwinStar is ok. Occasionally it will be down for repairs, which can be frustrating but understandable. I'm able to transfer funds without much problem, and they have a mobile app, which is also nice.
Overall, the customer service at Twinstar has been really good. Workers are more friendly around my area than other banking institutions, and they have some built in security questions when you work with a teller on your account, so it feels a little more secure.
I think the checking and savings accounts at Twinstar have been really helpful for me, and I haven't ever been hit with any weird fees. Hope this review helps!
Twinstar just dropped rates from 2.50% TO 2.25% rate and and effective April 1, 2013 maximum principal interest payments reduced from $20K to $15K. However, the reduction in interest rate is effective March 1, 2013. The notification in mail arrived Feb 28, 2013 and Feb 28, 2013 bank statement was issued March 1, 2013 and neither states interest rate reduction is effective immediately. Problems with deception are rampant at this institution. Unlike other insttitutions, they do not give advanced warning of rate reduction.
I used to bank with TwinStar and have now switched to another credit union. Every time I call with questions I am yelled at by their customer representatives. They are rude and don't have proper knowledge of loans. They also messed up my interest rate from 6% to 13% somehow, and when I called to have it fixed they were rude and wouldn't help me until I wrote a complaint to the main office. I called with a question just today about the auto loan I still am making payments on and the lady I talked to wouldn't patch me through to someone who could answer my questions. Once I pay off my auto loan in a few months I will never use TwinStar again.
