I had been banking at a local bank in my area for years, until I decided I wanted to branch out to a different bank because of the amount of traveling I do. I went with Golden1 because my sister had an account with them and loved them, also because everyone hypes credit unions because of the low interest rates they have. Well I opened my account, which I was promised free checks with. They charged me, not once but twice, with check fees, and I had to contact them both instances to have it reversed, as I was promised free checks. I also wanted to apply for their credit card because of the low interest, but was declined. I have perfect credit and was declined. They said I should sign up with a co-signer. I’m unimpressed with their customer service, and the service in general.

Money hungry

I've been a member since 2004 and have no problem at all because I've done everything on time. Until recently, without notice they were trying to charge off a loan that I cosign but have no idea that it was charge off until they decided to close my account. I was trying to work with them because we have file a insurance claim for the loan a couple of months back. But due to their incompetent, we have to file it twice. Now, while in the process of it all, they put a hold on my account which is being force to closed in a few day and I can't even get to my money. I've call customer care and walkin and they just keep telling me to cal this and that number without a result.
