Great Credit Union

Posted by: crocpa | Apr 11, 2016

Every time I call them or text then they resolve issues quick. They have a decent atm withdrawal limit of $500 per day. Their mobile deposit limit is generous. Even the max limit on the rewards checking is generous. Just wish they had an easier login method. You have to enter a random code every time.

Max Limit On Rewards Checking Only $25,000

Posted by: Noel Namo | Jun 15, 2016

The maximum balance limit that qualifies for the rewards checking rate of 2% has been lowered to $25,000 as of 06/01/16. This was done without any warning to me as a member. I also agree with a previous post that discussed major issues with getting online account access setup. It was an error filled process. My experience with customer service has been from one extreme to the other. It depends who you talk to. Just some things new members should keep in mind before opening an account.

20Th Century Technology

The login process is ridiculous. It drives MINT crazy. The app looks like it was designed by a 12 year old.

Oh yeah, and I was surprised by the drop from $50K to $25K with absolutely no warning as well. When I chatted online and asked them to at least honor one month at the higher balance, the "branch manager" had to check with somebody and then never responded back as promised.

Would not recommend. Lots of other institutions doing it right.

Let The Buyer Beware - A Complete Nightmare

Posted by: John Sears | Jun 7, 2016

They made me join some lame $5 outfit, I did.

They had me fund a Savings Acct. with $5. I did.

When I wanted to move over $240K to eventually fund a 5 year CD, it showed an error and that it was empty.

After tinkering with it for two days on their part, the security questions and bypass weren't compatible. The next day, they said the person in charge wasn't in that day, it had to be unlocked.

Later that day, now the woman in charge wouldn't be back for a week, and I had been turned down for trying to open too many credit unions. I explained I needed 3 for full coverage. I had opened 4.

Outrageous, dishonest and unethical. I doubt I will ever see my $10. Imagine if they had gotten the $240K, and it had disappeared?

Thumbs Down

Backwards organization here. They advertise in high-end car magazines proclaiming to be a lender for such automobiles. Well, that's not the case. They seem to have no experience or knowledge of lending on very high dollar vehicles. Don't waste your time with these guys.
