FAIRWINDS Member Reviews

Money Market is rated 4.6562 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to open, mobile deposit not Long time member. Was not using Fairwinds as my primary bank. Decided to change that. Opening up the Money Market account was easy. Using mobile deposit to deposit more than $5000 into a Fairwinds account, impossible. Depositing it into my local bank and transferring in, worse as I can only do $3000 at a time, and as long as $3000 is scheduled to be done (it takes upwards of a week) I can't schedule the next $3000. My current bank does not limit mobile deposits to $5000. So making the change is not easy. I live out of the area now, but close. No local branches. So I need mobile deposits of more than $5000.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extra account I opened up a money market so i could save money in a separate account to act as a true emergency fund. I looked online and the rates didn't really seem all that great and it is just like I thought. My initial interest credit wasn't much more than I would have gotten by leaving the money in regular savings. But it did give me the ability to keep these funds away from my other funds so they don't get spent so that's good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience! I just financed a car with Fairwinds Credit Union. The process and the personalized assistance I received was top notch. Within ten minutes I had my approval and during my search for just the right car, I had several follow up calls from Fairwinds to see if I needed any assistance. When I found the car, Fairwinds made the transaction a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relational and Knowledgeable The experience was exceptionally great. I had visited four banks in the area: two Chase, BB&T, Suntrust. Fair winds came in first and Suntrust second. Chase was at the bottom. WHY? Because Fairwind's person was relational, listened, went along with my needs, patient and kind. Her name: Crystal Parker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Customer Service! I have been a member of Fairwinds since it's inception. Recently, i went into my local branch to make a few changes with my accounts. After 30 plus years, the customer service is STILL stellar. Thank you so much for your commitment to your customers.
