Amazing what kind of change one person can make! One woman started this movement by inviting her Facebook friends to join her (tomorrow - Saturday, November 5th) in switching from large corporate banks to small credit unions. Read her story here and see if you might be interested in doing the same...

Anyone here belong to a credit union? What do you like and/or dislike about it? Anyone else planning to make the switch?

They don't charge us to death on things and I love their free online banking system.

What I like most about my credit union is free checking and free online bill paying.

I don't have a checking account or debit card with Bank of America but my mortgage is now through them.

I've never used the "bill pay" service that is on both of my checking accounts online but almost all of my bills have a payment page where I have both checking account numbers listed.

I've had the same credit union for 30+ years.

How do the service centers compare? The CU we're looking at doesn't have a local branch, but they do seems to have several service centers closer by.

Wow, after hearing the great things everyone had to say about credit unions, I really wish we had one in our small community!

Our Community Director, Jessica, wrote a wrap-up piece about Bank Transfer Day and credit unions. She used some of your quotes and great experiences too!
