I don't know.. I never received my bank card for one... no emails or papers sent since signing up 3 months ago...
Thanks Alliant,those atm rebates are amazing.
Alliant Credit Union is really good at service, amenities and ease of use.
I have had an account with Alliant since they started and changed from UAL credit union. I feel they are the best around. their services are superior to most others and I hope to do business with them as long as I am around.
It is like being paid to have a checking account here. Great Product! ATM rebate..up to minute transactions and interest paid
I think this is a fantastic new benefit! Christmas came early this year, lol! Thank you Alliant :)
Your new ATM Rebate policy is amazing! You are reimbursing me for a fee I have been charged! No one in any business ever does that! Once a fee is paid, good luck trying to get it reimbursed with any other financial institution. I have never had a problem with Alliant and this just adds to my pleasurable experience. You have my business for life! Thank you.
I love Alliant! They're always on top of new services andgives back to its customers world wide.
The checking account has worked well for me. I like that it's interest bearing with no outrageous limit and I've used many aspects of it, including the mobile checking app, without a hitch. Highly recommended.
Easy to use online once the accounts are linked.
Alliant has paid us more in dividends in one month than we earned all year at our previous credit union. Bill pay has been easy to set up and our payments are remitted accurately and on time. All of my questions have been addressed quickly and courteously. Surcharge-free ATMs are plentiful in our down-state community, too. We are very pleased with our recent switch to Alliant.
When was the last time a financial institution made their products better? Now I get ATM rebates?! Alliant keeps doing right by its membership.
I started out opening a savings and checking account with Alliant. I have been so impressed with the service I have received that I refinanced by mortgage and opened up a credit card account. I can't say enough nice things about Alliant. Every time I have to call customer service, the folks are so helpful and nice :) I recommend Alliant to everyone I know - especially when they are complaining to me about how much they hate their big bank!
I have enjoyed being a member with alliant. I love the fact that even though there are not branches everywhere, I still have a huge variety of access with all ATM's and the online banking. It has been a great choice for me to join, and they always have a great rate to offer for many products such as visas and loans. I always share the good news with friends and family. Thank you alliant for being awesome!
Whether you're looking for free checking or a checking account that earns better returns., Alliant has the checking account that's right for you.I could mention all the features like online banking,mobile app, online deposit, interest and so much more. But what separates this credit union is there world class service to there members.
We opened a joint checking account, thinking that all the features that are available to us as individual account holders would be available to us as joint account holders. Not so... The 2nd person on the account couldn't transfer money into the account from another bank. The 2nd person on the account can't use Bill Pay to pay bills. It's just been a total nightmare trying to get money into this account and pay bills, which is what a checking account is supposed to do. The interest is nice.
Mobile deposit is great, free checks, interest, free debit card, no minimums. I love it! I will be signing up my teen for a teen checking account soon, as well. We have our HSA through Alliant, as well! Very happy with them!
This is such an easy way to bank. It is easy to use on line and also on the phone. Thanks Alliant for great banking.
