Visions Federal Credit Union is THE BEST

Posted by: |

I have been with Visions for about 4 years. All can say is why didn't I join sooner?! The employees are very friendly and love their jobs(according to what they tell me). When I set up both my checking and savings accounts, it was very easy and haven't had any issues at all what so ever. They really treat loyalty well. If you stick with Visions they reward you with gifts all the time. I've gotten discounted tickets to theme parks, toys for my son, etc. The dividends I get on my savings account aren't that great but I mainly work out of my checking and don't have much for savings anyway. Overall, my experience has been above and beyond what I expected and if I ever were to move, I would stick with them because their mobile app and online banking is very user-friendly and always getting revamped.

Overall Very Good Experience

I've had a very good experience with Visions.

Their customer service has always been very good when I have visited in person and on the phone.

I've had a few minor issues doing non-routine transactions, but their people have always been pleasant and seemed to be trying their best.

I've been able to get their equivalent of 'cashiers checks', notary public services, and a 'Medallion Signature Guarantee' (for a security I transferred) without issue while visiting in-person.

Good Service, Bad Deposit Rates

I have been a member for decades, and recall when VFCU used to have among the best deposit rates in the country. However, for the last several years, VFCU's rates have just not been competitive. They seem to be more interested in refurbishing their buildings then returning dividends to their depositors. In these days of online banking, if you're looking for the best deposit rates, I would say it definitely pays to shop around since you can easily do better than VFCU.

Worst experience ever. I opened up savings account to look at getting mortgage. The mortgage process was poor and rates not best, so went to another lender. I left savings thinking leave for rainy day. Within 6 months, they are charging $15 Inactivity fee QUARTERLY. The paperwork I received never disclosed this fee and they just charged until balance was zero. They claim sent letters in mail but I moved and never received. The 0.00 balance letter was received (apt mgmt co called me notifying me of mail) so not sure if anything was sent prior. They had my email and phone number but never reached out. Complete Theft
