Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I became a member just this last month. My parents have always said good things about fairwinds and I was buying a car and wanted to finance through them... I'm really pleased with all the help and understanding from the workers that I am new to this and this is my first big purchase. They helped me through everything including all my questions. Thank you guys for all that you do!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bank! Opening my account online was so easy and incredibly fast. Service has been great so far, and the branch/ATM availability is awesome. Fairwinds is the best credit union.
