Credit Union. Much bigger in US than on this side of the pond.

Make that ".......monthly dis-service fee....." - one of many they manage to dream up/slap on.

I'm thinking of using the First Entertainment Credit Union, anyone else got any experience of them?

My only concern is that i currently bank in the UK with First Direct, and there online service and iPhone app are outstanding, and i use them regularly. If i go with a credit union i guess it's unlikely they will have the same level of offerings?

Gonna miss First Direct, there customer service really is second to none

Cheers

Gareth

I've banked with a small savings and loan that's based in our town. Been with them for eighteen years. They have all the standard online services that I think are standard with all banks. I believe, being a small operation, the online services are outsourced, but they are as good as and comparable with the services offered by a multinational bank.

No, never used a credit union - but Consumer Reports (similar to Which? in UK)
do recommend them as opposed to banks.
Were I in your shoes - I'd give it a go. If you hate them - take your money (out) and go (elsewhere).
