5. Love my Credit Union

I have had an account since the late 70's because my Dad was a Federal employee.

When I went away to college in 1984, I got a traditional bank account just so I could do business away from home. After a year of fees and frustration, I bagged the bank account and have never looked back. My CU has always taken good care of me for a fraction of the cost. Often even paying interest on accounts that I would have to pay for elsewhere.

To this day I sometimes get funny looks at how low my account number is since I have had it for 40 years.

Over the years they have significantly relaxed their membership requirements to allow a lot more groups to join. It was with particular irony that I noted that their membership eligibility extends as a perk for employees of a number of banks. What does that tell you?
