I have opened each of my three children a savings account with ING DIRECT to save for college. I choose the kids' savings accounts, because that way I have control and access to the account, but they can also deposit any money they earn, view the account status, etc. They earn annual interest on the money. When you sign up for a new account, you can also google for a coupon code to get a free deposit with a new account, usually $10. I got the new account bonus for each account I opened. It is easy to transfer money into the account from my personal checking, but it does take several business days for the transfer to complete. They have the best customer service. The website is also the most user friendly among the banks I use.
Arma insurance insured my first car when I was 16. Despite my age and lack of driving record they gave me a great rate. They even gave me a discount for taking a driver's education class in high school, and at the time they had discounts for good grades on my report card as well. They helped me to understand how much insurance I needed, as I was clueless about car insurance. When someone rear-ended me at a stop light, they were the first place I called (after the police) and they gave me all of the information I needed and handled everything for me. They came out and assessed the damage the next day and gave me a check for repairs by the end of the week. Great experience with this company.
I am a member of this credit union through my husband, who teaches within the school district. I am glad there is a local credit union that supports the teachers. We have gotten a fair interest rate on both a home and car loan. Checking is free since my husband has his paycheck direct deposited into our checking account. The application process did take a bit longer than I anticipated while they verified our info and eligibility, but it was nothing unreasonable. Customer service has always been super. I do wish they were open longer on weekends, but they have the same hours as most local banks.
Great credit union for students that are just starting out and are looking to open their first checking account. Easy access to branch located on campus. Great for using at the bookstore to purchase books and supplies and at the on campus restaurants. Parents can load the account with money if needed aswell. Great customer services. Open during class hours. I loved my checkcard for making purchases right out of my account and eliminating the need for checks. Every school should have this credit union for the students to use. It is great to be able to stop by before class and do my banking.
I have been banking with my local Wells Fargo since it was another bank and was bought out by Wells Fargo. So far I am pleased with the customer service, and it is even better than the one offered by my prior bank. In addition to a checking account, I also have a home loan and student loan with Wells Fargo. I have had no problems with any of the above. I like that I get paperless statements online when my bills are due. The one thing I would like to see is more ATMS and a drive-up ATM at my local branch. Otherwise I have no complaints!
Allstate provides car insurance for my small sedan. The rate is comparable to other local companies, and I like the big company appeal. I've only had to make a claim once, but the customer service was excellent. My car was hit while parked in a parking lot, and the offending driver fled the scene and was not located. Allstate sent an agent out that same day to assess the damage and get me into a repair shop. I even have rental car coverage so I was not without a vehicle for any period of time. Having never made a claim before I was lost, but the agent walked me through the process completely. I was really pleased, and that is why I keep this car insured with Allstate.
State farm has provided me with personal auto insurance for my cars for over 10 years. They had the lowest rate in town.They also gave me a discount since I have life insurance with them, and my rate lowers every year that I have them. The deductiblle is small too. Customer service is good – when I once had a cracked windshield they made sure it was replaced fast and free of charge. The entire process was hassle free. Whenever I trade-in vehicles they make the process of switching the insurance hassle free for me. I will use them in the future when I purchase my next home and vehicles.
I opened an account with Compass bank about 4 years ago when I opened my first business. I had a bit of technical difficulties with the website with opening a new account, but I went into the closest branch and they were very helpful in setting my account up. They even gave me free checks and a free stamp with my account number. My account has no fees and no minimum balance, which is nice just starting out. They have a nice secure drop box for after-hours deposits, very good ATM access, good customer service and a nice app for my iPhone for checking balances.
I had a checking account with ARC Credit Union for over 10 years when I was living in Michigan. I closed the checking account when I moved, but I maintained my savings account because of the great interest rate I receive. I wish there was an ARC in my state so that I could still use the checking account, but there are no ATMs here. Anyone in MI looking for a credit union should check out ARC. Great loan rates, top customer service and banking was always quick and easy. They opened my account the same day with no hassle, and when I got married and changed my name they even gave me a free box of checks with my new name on them.
My husband and I have accounts with several banks, but SPC Credit Union gives me the best customer service by far. Whenever I walk in to make a deposit or other transaction they actually know me by name. There is always plenty of staff working, so I never have to worry about waiting long if I run by to do banking on my lunch hour. I currently have a checking account with them, and I just took out an auto loan as well. The application process and approval took less than a day, and I got a great low rate on a new car. I even got a bonus discount with my credit union membership. I have nothing but positive things to say about the bank and staff.
I've had a Capital One account for 2 years. I have only had one problem during the time a deposit was entered into my account in an amount less than the check was written for. However, when I contacted customer service they were very helpful, and promptly corrected the error with no further issues. I noticed the correction on my online statement immediately. Out of several banks I bank with, I like the online banking site for Capital One the best. It was easy to open my account online, and I have easy access to my monthly account statements, transfers and online bill pay.
We have used USAA for our home insurance since we first purchased a new home back in 2005. We were given a great rate, which was much lower than other companies we compared to when shopping for home insurance. It was also really easy to get a quote online before we purchased. We just put in our information and had a quote in less than ten minutes. They make payments easy and allow us to split yearly premiums into 2 payments every 6 months. Customer service is great, and when I needed insurance documents for closing at the last minute, they had them faxed to me and in my hands within 20 minutes. I could not ask for more from a home insurance company. Currently I am considering switching to them for car insurance as well.
I have had an account open with EMC since 2009. I have never had an issue with this credit union. Customer service always handles my requests promptly. I currently have a car loan through EMC with a very low interest rate. I also have a savings account with automatic deposits for my children's college fund. Excellent staff and service, easy to get to location. My husband has been so impressed with the service that he switched all of his accounts to EMC. Highly recommend EMC credit union to anyone looking for a great bank with low rates and fast friendly service!
My family has been a member of Community First Credit Union for over 5 years. My husband and I each have checking accounts with this credit union, and we also have savings accounts for our 3 kids here. I first found Community Credit Union when I was researching car loan rates in the area. They had the lowest rate by far, so I opened an account with them. I have since had 3 car loans and 1 mortgage with Community First Credit Union, and I have never had any problems with them. Customer service is always prompt, and the application process is always easy. I plan to be a customer for life.
I have used Progressive car insurance for about 8 years and I have never had a problem with them. Whenever I have needed assistance they have been prompt and very helpful. When I bought a new car I called them from the car lot and they transferred my insurance from my trade in car to my new vehicle, made the needed changes to my policy for the new car, and faxed all of the required information to the auto dealer for me. When I got a cracked windshield they replaced it free of charge and with no hassle. The rates are reasonable and they have easy payment options. There are also many different discounts offered.
I love having my checking account with Navy Federal Credit Union. I switched banks after several horrible customer service experiences at a leading big bank, and I could not be happier. With no checking fees I am saving a lot of money yearly that I was previously spending just to have my account open. They set me up with direct deposit and I even got a box of free checks when I joined. They have plenty of ATMs locally with no usage fee. Also, I just recently bought a new car and I financed it with the credit union. After searching around they had the lowest interest rates by far. I will be a lifetime member.
