Hmmm, interesting that (North Carolina) State Employees beat out Penfed, my only CU in the top 10. I have 3 CU accounts - Vantage West claims to be the largest CU in southern Arizona and with 130,000 members is just below #50 on the list. And my 3rd CU is probably one of the smallest - Southeastern Arizona Fed CU. With main branch in Douglas & just 1 other branch in Benson, those two communities probably have less than 20k population, so they probably have maybe 5k members. But they gave me a 60 mo. car loan @1.99% APR in Jan 2015 for a 2013 used rental from Hertz with a 704 EQ Vantage score, so they work for me. Yeah, they used a Vantage score, that small an operation they probably save money using Vantage instead of FICO.
