No more banks for me. For anything.

Re: Who is Compass Bank ??

When I lived in PHX my Ex banked with them, this was some 6 years ago. In any case, they seemed nice and had quite a few locations. Seemed more like a CU than a bank.

Comparing any bank to a credit union is an insult to credt unions in general. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!!!

 

Credit unions are much better than banks in a number of ways. Just do a little research on it. Or better yet, join one and you will know.

PP was actually complimenting the bank by referring to it's CU-like qualities, some banks have 'em, In fact some banks even started as CU like Nationwide :smileyhappy:

Re: Who is Compass Bank ??

I bank with Chase, and a local CU for both personal and business. I agree that CUs for the most part are better, but I think since the change in the economy most CUs have become very conservative and taken on a "big bank" mentality.

Sans euphemisms and conjecture, no. Totally wrong.

 

Example, the credit union I just joined a week ago approved a new unsecured Visa CC for $1,000 limit. APPROVED! DONE! IN ONE BUSINESS DAY!!!

 

Compass BBVA would only give me secured VISA (which I promptly canceled today, and I have a clean record, no liens, collections, bankruptcy, no late payments on the closed accounts EVER, AND I HAVE A 746 FICO SCORE!!!, although I don't brag about it in my signature line when I post).

 

BIG BANK MENTALITY?

 

Not on your life. You won't convince me ;-)

If all you got was $1k and you have a 746 FICO from a CU, then something is wrong.
