Navy Federal Credit Union

Great for Auto Loans
Helpful to 2 out of 2 people

I looked around at a lot of places for auto loan rates and Navy Federal had equal to or better rates than anywhere else I could find at the time. They have great staff and respond to any questions I have pretty quickly. I use their checking, not for my primary account, and I have a savings account with them. I know they don't have very many locations which can be an issue if they were your only banking institution, but they have a great online system which makes transfers easy. I use my savings & checking with them as my vacation accounts.

Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

Great for getting skymiles through Delta
Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

I love this card when I travel with Delta, it gets you extra luggage and more miles. I use it to pay for all my travel expenses (including gas), and often when I go on vacation. Constantly getting miles for use is great. They also have an insurance package using this card for rental cards. If you use your card a lot and repay it quickly (above what's required) they will increase your maximum amount to fit your spending/repayment habbits -- it's help increase my credit score because it shows a much lower usage %. I've never regretted using this card.

America First Credit Union (AFCU)

Great Credit Union or the Wasatch Front

I've had my checking account through AFCU since 2005. I've had several loans through them, credit cards, savings, and money market savings accounts. They have great customer service, and follow up on all issues I've ever had. I've used them all over the US, which can be a bit of a pain for ATM fee's outside Utah. If you are living in Utah, especially the Wasatch Front, they are all over the place. The only place I'd consider over/in competition with America First in Utah is Mountain America Credit Union.
