I started with this credit union when I first started building credit. I have very generous lines of credit, credit cards, signature loans and have even been approved many times over or their auto loans. The Downtown Tulsa Branch is the very best. The entire staff, regardless of branch will remember you by name and you will rarely ever have to give them your account number. They are very easy to do business with.

I have been a member at SchoolsFirst for around 5 years, and my wife's family has been banking with them for around 10 years. They are always great to work with and the default position for them is to serve their members (not the bottom line like with most large banks I have dealt with). We have had several issues come up, from an ATM hack pulling $500 from our account, to lost cards that needed fast replacement prior to a trip out of town--SchoolsFirst has always had our back and has gone the extra mile to ship us that replacement card via overnight mail, etc. We have gotten several loans through the credit union, for cars, personal loans, and the loan process was great and we got pretty spectacular rates for everything. Can't wait till we're ready to buy a home and get to work with them for our mortgage. While their branches are obviously limited to the SoCal area, we banked with them from Philadelphia for four years by using the CO-OP network ATMs and the iPhone apps (very easy and user-friendly).

I generally do not like to write reviews, however I think BCU is deserving of this one. I was originally with Target Credit Union (2007) before they were taken over by BCU (2011) if I recall correctly. I used the credit union just because I was always told it was good to have one. I do not have any branches in my state so kept an account with a big bank for the convenience of being able to walk into a bank branch when needed. The recession hit at the end of 2008 and the big bank treated me like I was not even human. Then one day in 2011 I decided to take a deeper look into the benefits of the credit union, after everyone else said "NO" to everything, BCU said yes, they put me on a solid path to rebuilding my credit, offering different products, to date I have 4 accounts with them. I learned about shared branching, and turns out that there are actually more accessible branches with shared branching, than there are with big bank. I recommend BCU to everyone that asks, because they have truly taken care of me and treated me like a member/owner of the credit union. So now, even though I may qualify somewhere else, I look to BCU for all my needs and it has become my primary bank. Oh and loans are approved same day! Thanks BCU!

I joined this credit union based off of reviews on this site, as well as the fact that is highly rated on BBB and they offer a generous APY on their Super Reward Checking Account. I have been using Provident for about 5 months now and I am sad to say that I am dissatisfied. The ATM is constantly out of order and the ATM even ate my money the other day and went out of order once again. I told the tellers inside and they filed a report and gave my account a credit for the amount of money that was stuck in the machine. About a week later, I noticed that the credit had been revoked from my account and replaced with a smaller credit, which tells me that they didn't "find" all of my money in the ATM machine. No one ever notified me of these transactions occuring. If they're going to dock money from my account, you'd think they would have the courtesy to at least talk to me about it. This credit union is not worth the trouble for a few extra bucks a month from APY. Take your money elsewhere, as it's clearly not important to this credit union to keep it safe.

I have been a member of LGE Community Credit Union for about a year. I have only been into 2 branches so far (Austell & Kennesaw). I myself work in customer service,, and my experience with their staff so far has been nothing short of excellent. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. I even had one debit card dispute which was resolved in a professional & couteous manner. I am truely proud to be a member of such a great institution.

Been with AACU for 30 years and they've financed several (6) vehicles with competitive rates. I've had the occasion to visit their locations and have been treated professionally & efficiently.
However, I was denied a refinance last year for some reason with EXCELLENT credit rating. Went to my local Georgia's Own Credit Union and was approved immediately with a lower interest rate on both properties. Sorry, AACU--your loss!

I have been with them for over 15 years and they are the most helpful, courteous, and professional people that I have dealt with. Credit union fees are cheaper, they dont report you if you make mistakes. They give you plenty chances before they start charging fees. I highly recommend them.
My mother was one of WECU's first employees recognized for outstanding service before they had a building on Holly Street and had worked there for many years, so as part of the WECU family, I had a WECU savings account when I turned five. I graduated to a checking account when I was sixteen. Unfortunately, WECU closed that account when I had paid off an auto loan because I had filed for bankruptcy as a result of my divorce, even though the bankruptcy was not against the auto loan. I guess this is clearly stated in WECU's bylaws, but the letter I was sent stated that since WECU had lost an asset and I was "unable to repay the loss," they had to close my 25 year-old account. Ironically, I had paid for the asset and had money in my account. I was told it wouldn't matter if it was a penny or a million dollars in the account - they had to close the account because I was a liability for which they no longer had any sort of material asset to hold as collateral. THAT made me realize that I'm just a number. I had started banking with another credit union in town a few years prior to this incident and really did feel the difference that a smaller bank can make. It felt like old times again. Silly WECU.
While trying to build my credit I felt like I had no options and decided to try them for a car loan. To apply you have to open account with them but can do that with 25.00. They took a chance and preapproved me for a car loan. Due to my credit I hadn't had a credit card in years. I had started slowly rebuilding my credit and had one department store card with a low limit. I tried to get a regular credit card with no luck. Turned down left and right. I applied with CAFCU on a whim and they gave me a card with a $500.oo limit. Since then I have another MC from elsewhere with a 2000.00 credit limit and my credit score jumps. The nice thing is that I know they made exceptions both for my car and credit card but they personally looked it over and discussed with me my options. I recommend!!!!!
