Great Credit Union

I've been with this credit union for over 20 years and have never once experienced anything bad. I use the NW Expressway and Edmond locations mostly. Everyone is friendly and helpful.. I even got my daughter an account a year or so ago and we both just financed new cars at the lowest rate anyone else could offer. They made it so easy and I would never think of leaving them.

I'm not sure about the negative posts here.. Some people will never be happy about things.. You see them screaming at checkers in the grocery store for no good reason.. always embarrassing.. Some people will always find bad because that's just how they are..

Customer Service

I have been extremely pleased with this credit union's customer service. Representatives have been pleasant and helpful. The web/mobile service makes it easy to access account status and information. They also offer low interest loans on items such as storm shelters, vehicles, homes.

Communication Federal Credit Union -- Misleading information during the application process

Posted by: 51hh | Sep 29, 2011

Talking about "tough to join" and a bit misleading:

They stated at their website that anyone can join easlily via the "Citizen for Financial Literacy" with $5 contribution. Then when one applies, they stated after one goes through all the online application procedures (Chex, ID check, sending payment, etc.): "Sorry, you have to live in OK or Kansas to join that association."

I am not complaining about the "tough to join" part, but it is a bit misleading to cause people to apply, then they turned one down rapidly. It is a waste of time on the part of the applicants.

Ref. from their website:

It's never been easier to join Communication Federal Credit Union! Just click the Open My Account button below and go directly to our online membership application.
New member? Signing up is simple and easy. Citizens for Financial Literacy
(If you do not fall within our regular field of membership, you may join the Citizens for
Financial Literacy association in order to become a member with Communication
Federal Credit Union) -- Note that nowhere it specifies the residency requirement to join this association during the important application process.

Please note that Maria did point out the residency requirement was stated at the cover page. The CC should have included this crucial information during the online application process to ensure te ruling out of out-of-state applicants (like the Kasasa Cash application process). Since it is now a minor flaw, I have modified my initial comments and rating accordingly. Thanks Maria!

Really Nasty Credit Union - Now With A Nasty RCA!!!

Posted by: 51hh | Nov 26, 2016

It is as expected that they reduced their RCA rate to a poor 1.5%. I was treated like a criminal when I applied in 2011. They run a Mafia organization that threatens and bullies people. Stay away from them; with a horrible customer service and a terrible rate. It is a nightmare for me!!

I sincerely regret that there is even such a credit union in the democratic USA! What a shame!!

The Union In Norman, OK Sucks!

They're misleading and don't know what they are doing. I've had to send several emails to their customer support center online. I always get an email back saying that this branch is wrong and an apology. However, things never get better and they treat people like crap! The tellers are always giving each other dirty looks and they are not worthy of being credit union employees. When there is a problem they always say that they're sorry but that's how they did it at the bank where they last worked at. I remind them that this is not a bank, it's a credit union and there is a difference! If they would stop and just try to do things like they are suppose to do, I wouldn't have to make so many trips and they wouldn't have to give so many apologies.

Horrible Experience At Branch 3 Located At 520 Southwest 89Th Street, OKC

Posted by: pete1 | May 8, 2012

Branch 3 could use a lesson in customer service. My wife and I applied for a auto loan back in February 2012 due to the low rate 1.99% being offered. Turns out that was the only thing we would enjoy about the credit union. I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that the tellers are the rudest, most unprofessional, uneducated group of misfits I have ever encountered. There is so much tension between tellers because they are constantly fueding because one is doing more than the other. They are constantly in a horrible mood and act like they do not want to be there. Customer service is a foreign concept to these tellers. They treat the members like dirt, shout at members, they throw temper tantrums when they get "overworked." I refinanced my vehicle after 3 months of their practices and would not recommend this place!
