*Dividends: Interest is compounded and credited monthly. Requires eStatements, six (6) debit card transactions per month and a minimum of $500 directly deposited to your account each month.
**Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.
I opened both checking and savings accounts at the Excite Credit Union. The two ladies who assisted me were
extremely nice. I think they were the 'friendliest tellers' I've ever dealt with anywhere in my 50+ years of banking.
In my opinion, Excite offers the 'best rate' on checking accounts. They also have excellent CD rates, which I'll be
taking advantage of soon, as well as competitive loan rates.
