I opened an account with SEFCU when I came to the Albany NY area for college. I used a credit union back home and decided I wanted the same feeling from a bank so I opened a saving and checking account with SEFCU. The SEFCU campus connect is the student account which offers free Checking, free ATM access, free online banking, and free smartphone banking apps. The account was really easy to sign up with and all I needed was to provide my student ID and license. The employees at the SEFCU I bank at are really friendly and after banking with them for a year, they know my name when I walk in. A really great credit union!
I opened my BOA account when I went to college because it was one of the banks close to my college campus. I really enjoyed that I didn't have to pay any fees to maintain my account while I was a student. However, now that I am over the age of 23, I have to pay a fee of $12 unless I maintain a certain balance or a specific amount of direct deposit. While this is not an issue because I typically meet both requirements, it can be a hassle to make sure that both are met so I don't have to pay the fee. Other than that, I have no complaints. They are a very good bank with great customer service who are always willing to help!
I have been working with Webster bank for many years now. I opened a savings account with them when I was in high school and I have been pleased since day one. They are very helpful when I go in there with any questions. The tellers know who I am and make my experience extremely rewarding. There are many locations near my home that I can go to when I need to do my baking. My only complaint would be when I went to college, there were no locations near me so I had to open a checking account at a separate bank near my school. Overall, I have had a great experience with Webster and would recommend them!
I really enjoy working with Greylock, I have been with them for about 8 years now. I can always count on having good customer service when I go there. I once had an instance where someone tried to commit fraud with my credit card account and Greylock took care of the problem and alerted me right away. It gave me great piece of mind to know that they are on top of things like that. My only downfall to Greylock is that they are mainly located in and around Pittsfield, MA. When I went away to college, I had difficulty because there were no locations near me.
I had a great experience working with Jonna. I was interested in home insurance for the first home I was purchasing and she was very patient with me and explained the entire process to me. I never felt rushed or like I couldn't ask a certain question. She created a very comfortable environment for me. I feel that she also helped me get the best possible quote for my home insurance and worked with me to find which options I would need for my new house. She was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend her to others.
