Local Impact

Posted by: |

I’m proud to be a Vantage West member because of their local investment in our community. They are not for profit and put heir members first. Other credit unions say they are local but can’t match the level of service offered by Vantage West. You’d be crazy to bank anywhere else!

One Of The Best In Arizona

I've banked with Vantage West for several years now, and things have gotten so much better recently--they're really one of the best banks or credit unions I've banked with! Their systems are modern and very easy to use. I get higher deposit rates on my CDs with their relationship pricing. All around this is a great credit union for people in Tucson and Phoenix.

Love the customer service

I've been with vantage west for about 3 years now and probably will be for years to come. The products and pricing are really good and they recently started adding things like discounts on car insurance for being a member. The people are always really nice and my husband and I really like the credit card that we have through them. My only real complaint is that the mobile app is slow to update and on sunday it removes all the previous cleared/clearing. So it makes seeing where we are financially on the go a pain. Oh and they use to have coinstar type machine in the bank that was free for members but they took it out, I really liked it but it's not a big deal.

IRA Rates High And NCUA Coverage Means Preservation Of Capital.

I found their IRA rates for Premium Share accounts to be very attractive. My wife had been a customer for over 25 years. I met with a VantageWest customer service rep to set up the transfer of an existing traditional IRA from another financial institution. Only time will tell if their service is good; however, the experience was professional. The rep was highly competent and their webite appears to be good and very easily navigated. I plan to have my wife move her traditional IRA from another financial institution at the earliest next convenience. So, to that extent, I recommend AdvantageWest. Their business longevity speaks for itself. 

Beware Of Vantage West CU, Save Yourself

Posted by: |

I have been a customer for 16 yrs and I continue to complain, but now I am finally closing my acct. This bank sucks! The computer banking makes you go in and get a password from email or text every single time I log in, so frustrating. It takes 3-5 days to deposit a check, I deposited a ck. for 2900.00 and they held the check for 4 days and OD my acct, for 96.00 by holding some small charges, 15.00 and 6.00 and withdrawing a 600.00 amt. then od all three items, then releasing the checks all within hours, and they didnt' even care. I never OD my acct but the ck. was from BofA, I should have just went down the street and cashed it the same day. The tellers are stupid and they act like your robbing the place everytime you go in there, save yourself a hassle and go to a real bank.

Overdraft Fees

Posted by: |

Vantage west takes advantage of their customers with the extremely high fees for over draft. they charge you $32.00 on a $4.00 over draft.. I know it was my own fault for not having enough to cover the $4.00 debit trans. however thats a total of 8 times the amount I was overdrafted. Thats just wrong..  they also attach fees on fees. I guess they have to make there money some how..
