VCU: Cares About You

After banking with Bank of America for over two years I ended up switching to Vantage Credit Union due to poor customer service at Bank of America. Thankfully Vantage Credit Union has been great. Their website is responsive and easy to navigate. I pay my credit card bill every month from their website without any issues. It's always easy for me to transfer money from my savings account to checking. Anytime I've needed customer support Vantage Credit Union has solved my issues in a timely manner. When I need to deposit a check I simply go through their drive-thru for a quick deposit, there is never a line longer than one or two cars. Their banking fees are also incredibly reasonable, if I withdraw money from a VCU ATM there isn't a fee. I also have over-draft protection on my checking account that has actually saved me money when I a company overcharged my checking account. I would rather be a part of a smaller credit union that actually cares about each of their customers than a big bank that feels like they can ignore their smaller customers. I will continue to bank with Vantage Credit Union as long as they keep up their friendly customer service and keep their website easy to navigate.

Vantage is a Great Credit Union Who Works for Their Customers

My overall experience with Vantage Credit Union has been a very pleasant experience. I was having trouble getting an account at other banks/credit unions because of past things but they gave me a chance to improve on those things and allowed to give me an account. They don't have outrageous fees for overdrafting and they don't try to make extra money off of their customers like other banks do. In addition to great banking services, they offer all sorts of additional things, usually for free. They have a free notary service which I have needed to use on one occasion, saving me a few bucks and a lot of headache because it was so easy to use. They also offer discount tickets to events around the city like baseball games and tickets to the amusement park. Another thing they offer is a change machine so that you can convert all your coins into cash and there is no service fee to use it.

Greed Based Banking

Posted by: rhazz | Apr 22, 2016

They prey on their customers mistakes. I got hit with almost $300 in fees. My account went in to overdraft and I was late on the payment. They sent me a notice via SNAIL MAIL with threats that arrive to my house 3 days AFTER they already took action and gave me no ability to correct the issue. Their choice of action was to "suspend my overdraft protection" and letting my account incur more and more fees (just under $300 worth)... If they were worried that I wasn't going to "make good" on $10.00.... why on earth would they purposely disable my overdraft protection causing me to owe them almost $300 now. Simple.. GREED, I paid the fee after a long debate with them when they refused to refund any of their excessive fees back to me. I closed my accounts, cashed out my CD's and moved my business to elsewhere and I have absolutely 0 issues there and never had any fees whatsoever. They even have awesome tools and notifications to help you avoid fees... they believe it earning money by HELPING people and providing services to people. Vantage seems to make their money on fees rather than services. I would suggest that you look at all banking options before choosing this one, Good luck!

I was a member of VCU for 30 years. This year, they decided to start charging if your account isn't active enough. The only notification was through the webpage, no letters/email...

While there are ways to avoid the fee, most involve taking loans through the credit union. It is very easy to find better rates than their services and they just aren't competitive anymore.
