Firelands, A Good Bank for Starters

Posted by: JJR | Mar 4, 2015

When I first got a job, I needed a bank account. However, all the banks in my town required a huge initial deposit and I had to maintain a large sum of money in the account at all times. This was just not possible for me. I heard about Firelands and learned that only charge a $5 initial amount to open an account and that five dollars is all that is needed to keep the account open. They have a great loan service which has helped me many times and the interest on it is very low. I have paid off many debts with their help.

Unless something drastic happens, I will continue to use Firelands.

Great Credit Union.

I have been a member of Fireland's Federal Credit Union since 1999. It has been, and continues to be, the best banking institution I have ever used. There are no crazy hidden fees, and they have free checking. I have never had anyone be rude to me. Everyone there is happy and helpful when I go inside. Even when I am at the drive thru, they are helpful and considerate.

They offer online banking that is simple and easy to use. I now do all my banking online because they make it so easy and time saving to do so. There site is secure and I have no worries about my information get stolen and used against me.

All in all I am positive that I will be staying a member of Fireland's Federal Credit Union for the rest of my life. I don't see me being happy anywhere else.

The Credit Union is located at a fairly easy place to get to. Traffic is not congested there, and the drive thru has 5 lanes. Most banks I've seen only have 4 lanes or less. FFCU has 5 and they are all open all day long. So there is no 30 minute wait in line like at other institutions.
