Solid credit union
Fakyuden Account Holder

I applied with virtually no background info, but they asked a few questions and helped me sign up. People who rank low are just having a hard time with credit unions in general and probably just venting.

Great rates and they care
Anonymous Account Holder

Have had an account for 30 years. They give the highest interest rate on their Premier checking account of anywhere. Recently had trouble making a wire transfer while traveling and the customer service rep went so far above and beyond to help me I couldn't believe it. I would never bank elsewhere.

Excelent credit union.
JosepBillcc3 Account Holder

I like so much SDFCU.  Customer service is good and the account offers too.  Hope to apply for a credit card with no annual fee.  Their secured credit card with no credit check is amazing for a credit profile with no unwanted inquiries.

Great customer service!
Anonymous Account Holder

I applied for this secured credit card based on a blog I read because they don't run your credit if you request it. It is as advertised. They will raise your limit based on how much is in your savings account. That is the 'secured' part.

Been Great So Far

I've been with SDFCU for almost a year now.  I chose their secured card to help repair my credit because it has no fees, low interest and it had a chip before they were required.  The application process was a cinch.  I did it over the phone on a Saturday with a rep that was very knowledgeable and helpful.  The card came and it was really straightforward.  Since then, they've reversed an overdraft fee on my savings account for a charge I didn't know was going to be processed.  They were very kind when I called, and it was done right away.  I'm now looking into their secured loan to continue to boost my credit, and I've spoken to two reps.  They were both helpful, and one said I could ask for him by name when I was ready to get it started.  I know he probably gets a commission, but I like being able to ask for someone I've already talked to.  It took my a bit to get the hang of their online credit card site, but it's really easy now that I know.  All in all, I've been really pleased.
