Ratings and Reviews
Seem less so far
I opened an account for my business with BECU when my bank changed their policy after having my account for over 25 years. I want to keep the business open for now even though I’m not doing much with it because small projects still come up. But the new $2,000 minimum in checking was too high to maintain since Covid. BECU doesn’t have a minimum balance required. When I went in to my local branch to open my account I had the nicest people helping me get set up. They’re professional, patient, have the most knowledge about small business, we’re thorough, and most of all friendly. It’s so important to feel like you have a relationship with your bank professionals. It is to me. I even emailed with a question when I went in to move my other accounts over and heard back within an hour. This was all comforting for me as I switch over after years with another company. And to top it off, the online banking is so easy. I needed to change banks and couldn’t feel better about my decision to go with BECU. Seriously a positive experience all around.
App needs attention - multiple accounts fail too often
First, BECU has really been a great credit union. This app however, really needs attention. Regardless if you like the colors or the way the graphs show spend, it’s all useless if the account to don’t update, never sync, or return incorrect values. BMW hasn’t updated in over a year so I’ve deleted it. Chase bank won’t update unless I update credentials even though my password hasn’t changed. Morgan Stanley brings back an incorrect value which hasn’t changed in a year. Fidelity updates but brings back incorrect totals from wrong fields. Flag star bank has been failing for a month now. When you do need to update a credential, it’s buggy and fails. So, you have to delete the account. Wait.. then add it again as a new account. In settings, you can access your account directly which is necessary sometime if the account requires validation or to prove your identity. Most of the time I just get an “oops something went wrong”. So, you can’t actually access your account directly.
I’m spelling all of this out here because there is NO way to get support on the app or report these failures. It’s all very frustrating. As mush as I’ve enjoyed BECU as a credit union, if I find another good bank with a more quality money manager, this app would cause me to move on to another institution.
Hey developer! Please read and actually take action to fix and stop constant bugs!
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear of your experience. We are actively working on this issue. Best way to relay these issues is to contact a representative via Messenger which can be accessed from the main menu.
I received my auto loan through a credit union. Unfortunately, it wasn’t with BECU, who’s rate was slightly higher. Because I’d wanted to get rid of my regular bank, I opened a checking and savings account with the credit union that I received my car loan from. The problem with that credit union is that it has no branches or ATMs in my city! The app is so rudimentary that it’s very difficult to use. I will refinance my loan soon and hope to transfer it to BECU if the rate is the lowest, but in the meantime, I’m transferring my accounts to BECU. Just because it’s a credit union doesn’t mean BECU is unlike banking with any other established banking institution, and they make the use of their app and website VERY user friendly, which is appreciated! You have a very pleased new customer. And Neha at the branch in downtown Seattle was a pleasure to meet and help me set everything up! Thank you, BECU!
