Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Review This is my first real checking account and I am very satisfied with it. I especially like how I am not charged a fee to thank money out of my account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and good service! I became a member of the FAIRWINDS Credit Union about a month ago and I’m glad I did! It’s easy, which is especially great for a busy college student like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellence in everything! Thanks to my boyfriend's encouragement (he's been a loyal Fairwinds customer and advocate for years,) I finally walked in to my local Fairwinds store and created a UCF alumni account as well as a Money Market Savings account. The entire process from start to finish was less than 30 minutes aND the employee couldnt have been more friendly and eager to answer any questions I had! This was, by far, my most wonderful, simple, and fastest experience in any bank. I can't wait to open a credit account with Fairwinds too! The fact that your funds transfer from one account to another instantaneously, to me, is incredible and something I've never had before! The app is well-designed and I've had no negative experiences or regrets by signing up with Fairwinds. Thank you for everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience I became a member of Fairwinds about a month ago and it has been a wonderful experience. The people at the office were friendly and accommodating, and my ability to monitor my spending from the Fairwinds app makes this a perfect first time card account. I have very happy to have chosen Fairwinds.
