  • Credit Unions, I have had better experience with them

  • Both. We've always used a credit union for our joint account, and I always have a small separate account at a bank.

  • When we lived in a small town, we used the local credit union and had a really great experience with them. Once we moved, though, we started using a national bank, and when we move back, we'll probably stick with that bank just because of the hassle.

  • Credit Unions only. Banks charge too many fees. They are in it too make money off you Credit Unions are not. We haven't used a traditional bank in 25 yrs. We also haven't paid for checking accts, we earn interest on our checking account, pay minimal $ for Checks (if I used duplicate checks I would get them for free), they are FDIC insured same as any bank.

  • We have both I prefer the credit union, I keep a bank account because my son works there, and because their national, and have atm's everywhere, but they are much more of a hassle, and a lot more fees.

  • We use both, our car loan, mortgage, and credit cards are through the credit union. We use the bank for our everyday stuff.
