    Credit Union in Des Moines

    I'm looking to open an account at a credit union in and/or around Des Moines. I was thinking of going with Community Choice Credit Union (despite their lame commercials). Are there any others you can give a good recommendation on? Is Community Choice a good place to bank with?

    Re: Credit Union in Des Moines

    I would imagine they are all pretty comparible....though leave room for someone to correct me.

    I'm looking at switching banks and have the credit unions on my radar. To me a big consideration is location of their branches and if one is convenient to where I am most often(home and/or work). Premier Credit Union has a location on the skywalk so that would be convenient for me and thus one I want to consider. Veridan has a branch close to home, so I'm considering them too.

    Re: Credit Union in Des Moines

    I have a business account with veridian and have been happy with them; I believe their personal accounts are a pretty good setup as well

    I'd recommend setting up a savings account as well and link the two accounts together.. at that point you can keep all of the money in the savings account (with a higher rate) and the money will be pulled into the checking account whenever needed.

    Re: Credit Union in Des Moines

    Nothing against any other credit unions, but I have personally been extremely happy with Veridian.

    I would suggest comparing rates for a few of the same lines of products between any you are considering, in the event you do ever get a loan for something, pretty good indication of how competitive they are.

    Re: Credit Union in Des Moines

    I'll throw out another vote for at least checking out Veridian. I've been with them for about 4 years now and have always had good rates and great service.

    Have had an account with Veridian for about 6 months now (used to use Wells Fargo) and have been happy so far, their money market savings rates are very competitive.

    Financial Plus has historically had better deposit rates than many of the others.

    As an important part of your decision, The Financial Plus CEO is a big ISU fan, though Community Choice has its share of ISU fans/alum on staff. Veridian, I don't know.
