I have been a customer of University Credit Union through the University of Maine for several years. I have had various types of accounts with them including checking, savings, and a loan. The staff is always great to deal with whether I'm at the bank depositing a check or using the change machine in the lobby, have called to report an issue with my card, or when opening an account. I'm most grateful for the fantastic monitoring they do. Any time I've had a card compromised they catch it on the first transaction and immediately call to notify me. They also print cards in the branch, which is very helpful. Once when I was traveling out of state and lost my debit card they helped me find a credit union in their network who could help me withdraw enough cash until I could get home and get a new card printed.

Reward Checking Rate Is Actually 3% On First 10K

This credit union has been great to work with. I wanted to comment because the reward checking account rate isn't getting updated, it's still listed as 1.5% here though it's been 3% on the first 10k for a couple months I think. https://www.ucu.maine.edu/uploads/files/Rates/KasasaCashTruth_in_Savings.pdf

Rate Cut Effective June 1

Effective June 1, 2020 and upon qualification, you will earn:

Kasasa Cash Checking

1.50% APY* on balances up to $10,000

0.15% APY* on the portion of balance over $10,000

0.05% APY* on all balances if qualifications are not met (no change)

Kasasa Saver

0.75% APY* on balances up to $15,000

0.15% APY* on the portion of balance over $15,000

0.05% APY* on all balances if qualifications are not met (no change)

Edit June 1: UCU made it as difficult as possible to close my account through sheer incompetence and making me jump through all kinds of hoops. One person would say one thing and another would say something else altogether. Either they don't have their act together or this is some ham-handed attempt at retention. Finally, after a branch visit to the drive-thru (which connected me to a teller two hours away - why?) and multiple phone calls and emails I finally got it done, but it was a nightmare. All in all, it took me four days to be rid of them.
