The first checking/savings account I opened was at Crossroads Community Federal Credit Union. I chose it because my father was a long-time customer, and it was close by. Opening the account was very easy, but the biggest problem with Crossroads is the waiting. They have online banking, but it's not the best. Cheektowaga's branch is open when I need it, but I avoid going unless I have to. Crossroads Community Federal Credit Union has been a great bank for the most part as they have great customer service and the tellers understand banking, but sometimes the waits are just too much.
Car insurance can be a pain to deal with sometimes, but Allstate made it extremely easy! Allstate has been our car insurance provider for about three years now and so far they have been extremely courteous, friendly, and informative. I've never had to file a claim, but if I ever have to I know they will be with me till the end, looking out for my needs. My insurance policy is affordable and the agent explained everything to me when I signed up. I highly recommend Allstate for their car insurance policy as they as very affordable and professional in what they do. Oh and the best part is getting the refund checks for not having a claim. No other insurance company will look out for you like that!
Northwestern Mutual is a great life insurance option. Rates are great and the customer service is amazing! Although I am pretty young, it’s important to have good health insurance early and get good rates. Northwestern Mutual was extremely simple and easy to start up. They have multiple life insurance options and they helped me understand the process and which one was right for me. They are very flexible and you are eligible for Northwestern Mutual dividends if you are a permanent life insurance customer, which is great! Northwestern Mutual is a great place to handle your life insurance, and I highly recommend them.
I recently purchased a house in NY, and I spent many weeks talking with mortgage companies and different banks/lenders. Fairport Savings Bank (Fairport Mortgage) was without a doubt the best choice I could have made. The mortgage consultant I was working with was amazing! She was extremely helpful, polite, and made sure I was taken care of even after my mortgage went into underwriting. The whole mortgage process is done in the same building so it’s really fast and simple. Best of all my closing costs were really cheap. This was my fastest closing ever, and I highly recommend Fairport Savings Bank to anyone for checking/savings and especially for your mortgage.
I used to have a checking/savings account through Capitol Bank, and it was a great experience, but sadly I had to move so I had to switch to a different bank. They gave me an excellent experience, both in customer service and in rates. They don't have any crazy fees, unless you overdraft, but that's with most banks. Even when you do mess up and get a fee for overdrafting, they will reverse the fee as long as you are responsible and don't continue overdrafting. I’m not sure about the other loans/services they provide as I just had a checking/savings account, but I didn't have any trouble. The staff was respectable, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Where do I begin? I have been a Geico customer since 2006. I have nothing but positive things to say about them. They have always kept my insurance rates really low and have always been by my side. Even after an accident, that wasn't my fault, they were always there making sure I was taken care of. The staff I have worked with are friendly, courteous, and always knowledgeable. I tried shopping around earlier this year just to see if there are any lower rates and Geico still beat them all. The other insurance company would have charged triple what I am paying. No thanks. I am confident to say I will be doing business with Geico for the years to come. I highly recommend them to anyone!
Centris Federal Credit Union is an amazing credit union, one of the best in my opinion. They really care about their customers. The staff takes time to show concern, help when you need it, to learn your name. They are knowledgeable and very informative with interest rates and the services they provide. They are always more than willing to work with you when you are having financial struggles. I took out a personal loan with them and they waived some fees for me and matched a lower interest rate of a competitor. Instead of ripping me of, they worked with me to help get me “back on track”. If you are tired of dealing with big banks who don't even know who you are, I strongly suggest switching to Centris Federal Credit Union.
Woodmen Federal Credit Union is a great credit union in my opinion. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, but can it be frustrating when dealing with issues with your account – maybe because they are a small credit union. The application process was also frustrating especially since I could barely put 20% down on my mortgage, but the staff tried to lay out all documents and information as easily and quickly as possible. Monthly statements are emailed to me as well which is a nice convenience. Overall, I have enjoyed my experience with Woodmen Federal Credit Union, and I have no big complaints.
Home insurance can be a pain to deal with sometimes, but Liberty Mutual made it extremely easy! Liberty Mutual has been our home insurance provider for about a year now and so far they have been extremely courteous, friendly, and informative. I've never had to file a claim, but if I ever have to I know they will be with me till the end, looking out for my needs. My insurance policy is affordable and the agent explained everything to me when I signed up. I highly recommend Liberty Mutual for their home insurance policy as they as very affordable and professional in what they do.
About three years ago I needed a loan to buy a new car for my family. I didn't have enough cash to buy a new one so I turned to Family First of NY for help. I was able to get instantly approved and they gave me a great rate! They were very helpful, courteous, and made sure I knew everything I needed to know before I left. This is by far one of the best credit unions in Rochester, NY. If you need a loan for a new car, go to Family First of NY. They definitely put family first.
I use Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union for my savings and CD accounts. Syracuse Cooperative’s interest rates are very competitive, especially if you are a member. Syracuse Cooperative is a small credit union, but that doesn’t stop them from having great customer service, great credit union advantages like 24/7 access and awesome interest rates. Every time I visit Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union everyone is extremely friendly and they all know you by name. The only thing I don’t like is that it does take time for money to be seen online, but it’s not a big deal to me. I highly recommend Syracuse Cooperative Federal Credit Union.
I bought a house a few years ago and the best rates I received were through Bank of America. I was instantly pre-approved and got the house in no time! It was very scary to go through the process, but the Mortgage Loan Officer was extremely helpful, courteous, and easily walked me through it. I then signed up for a checking account through them, and I still have a bank account through them. The staff is very helpful. They go way above and beyond to help you with anything. I highly recommend Bank of America for any loan or checking needs.
I have been a customer at Pittsford Federal Credit Union for 1 year, and they have been a great credit union! I have a car loan through them at a very affordable rate! They are friendly, courteous, and responsive to your needs. If you have any problems, they are right on top of it. They are definitely the friendliest credit union in Pittsford and they have no fees, which is amazing! They also have a very accessible and easy-to-use website, which is a plus. I have really enjoyed my experience at Pittsford Federal Credit Union and highly recommend it to anyone.
From the beginning I have had trouble with Capital One. Capital One's banking and credit card process as well as their lack of customer service are difficult to deal with If you have an issue. It takes a long time to get things resolved, if they even do get resolved. For example, I had an issue with overdraft fees, which was not my fault, and they would not reimburse the fees. Their online banking system is horrible. Your transactions do not show up right away so it makes it difficult to balance your money. Please research Capital One or any other institution before you put your hard-earned money anywhere.
E Federal Credit Union is one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable credit unions I have dealt with. Dealing with large national banks can be frustrating so it's nice to have a close relationship with a small credit union. The staff is very knowledge and friendly. The application process is extremely easy. Everything is laid out clearly and accurately. During my time with them I have rarely had to call because all transactions have been accounted for and are easily done online. Monthly statements are emailed to me as well which is a nice convenience. I have really enjoyed my experience with E Federal Credit Union.
I have been with Wachovia for many years. Wells Fargo took over Wachovia and as I didn't like the takeover originally, I have grown to like Wells Fargo. I joined Wachovia for their free checking account for students, and they have always taken care of me. Wachovia or Wells Fargo is known for their great customer service and it definitely shows. They have always been helpful and courteous. I have only done a checking account with them so I can’t verify how they are with their other services, but it doesn't seem hard to qualify. I highly recommend Wells Fargo to anyone who is looking for a good checking account.
I have been with Midflorida Credit Union for about 3 years now, and they have been a great credit union to work with! I went from Wachovia to Midflorida Credit Union for checking/car loan. They were extremely ready and willing to set me right up with a new car loan with a low interest rate! The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. They will help you with anything you need in a timely and efficient manner. The Midflorida in Lakeland, FL is extremely fast, especially the drive-thru. I am able to get in and out in less than 5 minutes. I highly recommend Midflorida to anyone in Central, FL.
ESL Federal Credit Union has been a great credit union to work with. I have had a checking account with ESL for years. Their application process was simple and to the point. Whenever I had a problem, like over-drafting or missing payments, ESL also helped to get them resolved as quickly as possible. I have been with other credit unions, but ESL is definitely more customer-focused and they will disclose all information to you. Their credit accounts have no hidden fees and their online account posts new payments and deposits quickly. I have been a customer with them for years, and I highly recommend them.
I have been a customer at Xceed Financial Federal Credit Union for 2 years and they have been a great credit union! They are friendly, courteous, respectful, and responsive to your needs. If you have any problems, they are right on top of it. Because they are a small credit union, it's hard to get a problem solved with the local branch so you have to call corporate, which can be a pain, but they try to help as much as possible. I have really enjoyed my experience at Xceed Financial Federal Credit Union and highly recommend it to anyone.
