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.
