MrsRachel 6 years CU--although I wish I worked nearer to it. My husband works near it, but I handle the finances, so sometimes there is tension if he misplaces a deposit or withdrawal slip. wackdoodle 6 years I use a bank - an internet based bank (ING) as my main account now. Charges zero fees and the savings account pays great interest regardless of balance. I've never found a credit union that has branches all over west coast that enables me to find a branch where I am. myystque 6 years I have an account with a credit union because they don't charge a lot of fees and I have an account with an online bank that gives me a good interest rate on my savings. GlowingMoon 6 years Both. Spectra 6 years Both...I have a checking account at a bank because it's more convenient, but we have an account at the credit union to pay our mortgage directly. colleen-stg 6 years Both. But I'm trying to move everything to the credit union. Better service, more secure. erinflower 6 years Bank, but its USAA and I wouldn't bank through anyone else. starangel82 6 years Both. I like the CU, but I need a bank for easy access. supercoolnat 6 years Both - credit union for great rates and the convenience, and also an online bank for its good CD and savings rates. Since rates and both places are variable, I can move my money to whichever will give me the best return. SDTransplant 6 years Most of money resides with a credit union that unfortunately doesn't have ATMs near where I live, but I keep some in a local bank for easy access. stephley 6 years I agree with MV, but I do have a bank account near my office for convenience. Modus-Vivendi 6 years Credit Union for sure! It's the only way to go.
