Always Great Service

As a member of Virginia Credit for over 15 years now, I can say how wonderful their service is. Although I opened the account when I lived in VA, I moved out of state many years ago, but kept my accounts. Having to make deposits from far away, they have made this process so smooth. Not only have they provided me with special envelopes for mailing my deposits, they have been very courteous any time I have contacted them to verify my deposits. I was worried that it would take long for my deposits to be credited, but within a few days (to account for mailing) they were posted and available. I love how easy the envelope is -it contains a tear away deposit slip so that all I have to do is fill out that little part and place all inside the envelope. The envelope is already addressed for the correct department. Virginia Credit Union definitely knows how to take extra measures to save their customers some time and stress.

No minimums

Posted by: SDJ | Aug 21, 2014

There are no minimums for the regular checking account. That is something you won't see at a bank. Even other credit unions have some sort of minimum like five dollars but not Virginia Credit Union. This means if I am having a difficult month I won't be penalized for draining my account down to zero.

Also, the ATM fees are nearly non existent. They will reimburse you up to 8 dollars for a month if you get your money from a non VACU ATM. If you get it from an authorized ATM then it's free always. They also have competitive products and are reasonably located for me.

Not The Best

Posted by: Jamaal | Mar 11, 2015

My experiences with Virginia Credit Union are not the best experiences. I feel like I am very limited when it comes to banking with Virginia Credit Union. I am originally from south Georgia so when I go home to visit my family, I have trouble with my credit union account. I have been locked out of my account on multiple occasions. The reason that I get locked out of my account is because I use my card in multiple states on my driving commute to Georgia. The bank looked at this activity as being suspicious. Needless to say I had to wait until a week day to contact the bank and complain about being locked out. i would not recommend this bank to anyone who travels a lot because you will run into some trouble when using your account. It would be better to withdraw the money that you will need.
