I've had Bank of the West for a couple years, so I believe I can give a good, unbiased review. All in all I think this is a pretty good bank, if you need a checking account. The first thing I noticed when I was researching the different banks was "no fees". This was a big plus in my book. The customer service has always been respectful towards me and my family, no problems at all. There is a Bank of the West right near my home, so that is very convenient for me and my family to stop by.
I have been using credit unions for a couple of years now (I prefer them over banks), and I just found out about California Credit Union. They have a summer savings thing for teachers, I think that is a pretty cool idea. They take a portion of your deposit, and throw it into a savings account that has a higher APR. They also make you feel like you are a part of a family. They usually address you by your first name, and they always seem to know who comes in through the door. I really think this credit union is one of the better ones in the area. I think everybody should sign up with them especially if you are a teacher so you can take advantage of their summer savings program!
Like the other reviewer, I also prefer credit unions to banks. I feel it is a better idea to do so. You are in a better place when you choose to go the other route and go to a credit union. I believe the Western Federal Credit Union is a great union to go with! I Recently got a new car loan with Western Federal Credit Union - 2.99% for 60 months. It's available to qualified members in that have a credit score of 740 or higher. No down payment required, fixed rate for term of the loan, no prepay penalty fees and calculated on simple interest.Topping that off the customer service was amazing! I can definitely recommend these guys!
My experience with Ashford General Insurance Agency has been phenomenal! Back in the day, I had some pretty bad service form other car insurance providers, they weren't very helpful at all and it almost felt like I was a burden on them. Not these guy's though. Their customer service is very good and very helpful. That alone is worth it in my opinion. The actual insurance is very good and very affordable for me. They were able to help me find a plan that was right for me and my family. A definite recommendation from me for Ashford General Insurance Agency!
CNA is a good car insurance company. I feel at times that the price is a bit too high, but if you can afford it, it's worth the trouble. I have never had a problem with these guys and the customer service had always been great with them. When ever I have a question with my policy or anything about the insurance company they have always been friendly and informative. If you can not afford this car company's insurance, I would stay away. There are companies that offer great service with out the large bill.As far as CNA goes, it's a good company with great customer service, but I would pass if you're trying to save a little money on car insurance.
I have had Mercury Insurance Group for a couple years now, even if I have never had to file any claims and never had any accidents I believe I have made the right choice by choosing Mercury. I had no problems with signing up, I was able to pick what form of coverage I needed and the rates were very competitive. I also like checking my account online. I have all the tools I need that I can check on any Wifi device, this is a really good feature. This is a car insurance I can definitely recommend to all the people looking for auto insurance!
