Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good besides mobile check deposi I opened this account about 2 months ago but both times I tried doing a mobile deposit on the check it took 4 business days for the money to actually be useable in my account. One was a check for $5000 and they only gave me access to $200 of that amount for the first 4 days. I went in and talked to them and they allowed access to $400 more but $600 out of $5000 is not very much at all.

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.
