Rated 3 out of 5 by from Experience I had FAIRWINDS for two month and it’s ok but the fact that there’s not a lot of branches or atm by the west side of Orlando to make deposits, only withdraw.. has been a little inconvenient for me because i have to wait to deposit my cash until I️ go to school because that’s the only closes place to me..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but.. My experience has been good overall. However, I was told that there would be no minimum requirements to open an account, which there was. And I was also told that you could use your UCF ID just like a debit card, which you can't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience I became a member of Fairwinds Credit Union a little over a month ago and truly haven’t used it but that’s what I want. I wanted an account that builds but I don’t take the money out of the account giving me a chance to save towards my retirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Experience Awesome company. Went in on a whim to see what I could to help myself financially. Was able to refinance my car at the lowest rate among all central Florida Credit unions and consolidate all my other date at a very low interest rate. Stress free process and would definitely recommend
