I want to tell you that I have enjoyed being a member of AFCU for more than 32 years. I joined as soon as I was employed with The Aerospace Corporation on May 5, 1980 and have benefitted from using AFCU for savings and many loans. I used AFCU for loans for my house in the past and just recently refinanced to take me from a second mortgage to a first. My husband and I were blessed to use the extra cash for a trip to Megon and Columbus, Georgia this past May. We also used the money for another trip to Orlando, Florida and Mesa, Arizona this past week for our 50th wedding anniversary to see The Brother/Sister Plays.
I have purchased about 11 cars through the credit union. AFCU’s low loan rates helped me save money on interest. I have had the most excellent employees helping me with my finances - Florence, Karen and Devra to name a few. All the employees are so gifted in handling your paperwork that you feel right at home.
I have been able to have savings accounts, Christmas accounts and recently sponsored a few family members for their own savings accounts - my granddaughter, Cha’Ticia, a college graduate from Phoenix University, and a high school graduate this year who is 6’5” and received a 4-year scholarship to California State University, Long Beach.
Many thanks in advance,
Los Angeles, CA
In late 2011, I met with the folks at AFCU and received some loan application information. My husband William and I are both retired Air Force members. I have utilized USAA to finance our vehicles as I always thought it was the best rate for military members. I was seriously mistaken after discussing the loan options and rates with your wonderful staff. The amount I paid in interest on one car at USAA for two years, exceeded what I would pay at AFCU for all three vehicles I refinanced through AFCU. The savings allowed my husband and I to renew our vows at our 20 year anniversary in Las Vegas. Thank you to AFCU, where I will do all my future loans through. You have made a huge difference in the way we handle our financial decisions. - Julie D., California
In March 2012 we refinanced our mortgage with AFCU at a surprisingly low 15-year fixed rate! We were able to take out extra cash while still sticking to our same schedule to pay off our house. With the extra cash, we decided to take a long-awaited trip to Japan to meet our relatives from both my mother's and father's side of the family for the first time. It was important to myself and my kids to see their roots before too many generations passed and it was quite an emotional trip. Also because the dollar is so weak against the yen and everything was so expensive, we used our Aerospace Federal Credit Union Visa card a few times which is the only credit card we have that charges no foreign transaction fee! Thank you AFCU! - Harriet M.
AFCU arranged the loan for this car. The picture was taken in Munich, Germany, at BMW Welt (World), the site of BMW's first auto plant. It is also a current plant, building 900 cars a day and delivering many of them to people like us who travel to Munich to pick up their cars, then drive them around Europe. We picked up the car on May 29 and drove it through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy before flying home.
Thanks for your help AFCU!
Here my wife Arisbeth and I are just about to embark on a gondola ride in Venice. The AFCU Visa credit card was wonderful! I used it almost exclusively, except when I had to pay in cash, to finance both my wedding and honeymoon, which both took place abroad in Italy. Where most credit cards had international charges, the AFCU Visa credit card had zero!! We were able to save from all the costs of the wedding and use it for more important things...like drinking wine, eating good food, and treating ourselves right. - O'brian R., California
It was 6 AM and I was at the largest wholesale and seafood market in the world: the Tsukiji Fish Market. It was spring break of my sophomore year, and my college roommate and I had decided to set off on an impromptu adventure to Tokyo, Japan. By Day 3, we had already run out of cash, having spent most of it (rather wisely, I must add) on Japanese street food, including delicacies such as dango, yakisoba, and sweet potato ice cream.
Thankfully, I was able to use my AFCU debit card to withdraw additional yen from an ATM within any 7-Eleven, which were nearly on every block! Furthermore, as a young college backpacker in a foreign country, I chose not to travel with much cash on my immediate person. AFCU was reassuring in that they allowed me to withdraw cash as I pleased, without the additional fees. Here I am, about to dig into the chef's special sushi breakfast, prepared fresh for me at 6 AM. - Sophie K.
The Aerospace FCU online bill pay is a god-send. It's so easy to schedule payments, giving me peace of mind that all my bills will be paid as scheduled and on time with no hassles and worries. Above all, the money in my account continues to earn interest in my checking account up to the day when the bill is paid out and there is no cost for delivery. That means extra discretionary income for enjoying a local trip to the Huntington Library. Here I am enjoying the beautiful Japanese garden. - Alec K., California
My husband and I bike all over the great state of California. It's nice to know the ATM card is accepted everywhere we go and we only have to carry one card while traveling. Thanks AFCU! - Barbie and Ken B., California
I love AFCU! This picture is of Sara (12) and Briana (10) G. at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. No matter how much money my girl’s spent, I could always find a COOP network ATM to get more, including one at the Actors FCU about 20 steps off of Times Square! - Scott G., California
My Aerospace FCU ATM/Visa card took me to India and Nepal last year. To my surprise, I did not have any trouble using the card in the ATM machines in Dehli, Agra and Kathmandu. I didn't have the burden of carrying around a lot of cash, and I didn't get ripped off in ATM fees. Above all, the money conversion rates were much more favorable than with cash or traveler's checks. - May K., California
Stephanie, AFCU's Auto Buying Concierge from Autoland, was great all around! She was very professional. Not only did she respond very quickly to both my phone calls and emails, she did a great job searching for the make, color and cost of the car I wanted. The best thing I liked about my experience was the promptness of service. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Stephanie a 10! - Kory P., California
AFCU's Bill Payment portion of the online banking site is awesome! I did a lot of Christmas shopping this past December at a couple of department stores using their store credit cards. When the bills came, I accidentally waited until the very last minute to pay them. To avoid going to the store to pay, I decided to try using the Bill Pay section of AeroAccess. It was so easy to use; it only took me about five minutes to set-up. Most of the major department stores remittance information was pre-populated online, so all I needed was my account number and due date.
My payments were made on-time and I did it without leaving home. I would highly recommend this service. I saved gas, a paper check, postage, time and the effort it would take me to travel to the mall. I even submitted one two days before my due date and it truly gave me a peace of mind knowing it would be delivered on-time or backed by the guarantee. Intelligent banking made easy – love it! - Gail L., California
I recently had a great experience refinancing my Auto Loan with AFCU. Vanessa, their Loan Concierge did an outstanding job. She was very knowledgeable and quick to respond with a breakdown of monthly payment options for me based on AFCU’s loan rates and terms. She helped me submit my loan application and I was able to cut my monthly payments on my truck almost in half! I would highly recommend calling Vanessa if you are looking to refinance your auto loan. – Ian F., California
I use my AFCU Checking Account and debit card almost every day for quick purchases during lunch or running errands. But, my favorite time to use my card is when I travel! This picture is from a recent skiing trip to Mammoth where I used my debit card to purchase lift tickets and lunch on the slopes. It’s the only card I carry because Visa is accepted pretty much everywhere and I can easily check my balance using the Android app when I’m on top of the mountain. - Molly R., California
On March 7th we became the owners of a beautiful 2013 Lexus GS350. In the past, we found that the purchase of a new car generally involved a myriad of paperwork, many telephone calls, and often delays in promised delivery dates. None of the above was true in our dealing with your Auto Buying Concierge, Stephanie.
We found Stephanie to be professional, yet easily approachable. She kept us informed as to the status of the car, when the ship was expected to dock, when it actually did dock and when it would reach the dealer. Because we were terribly anxious to receive the car and had waited more than a month to get it, it was reassuring when she went above and beyond to make certain we were kept "in the loop".
We would recommend dealing with AFCU's Auto Buying Concierge, Autoland, (and especially Stephanie) because we couldn't have asked for better service. Stephanie is, indeed, a gem and AFCU is fortunate to have her as their Concierge. - Charles and Bobbi B., California
My name is Vanessa and I am a Loan Concierge for AFCU. Before I recommend a product or service to a member, I like to use them myself. Recently, I had the privilege of using Autoland – our Auto Buying Service. The process was extremely convenient. I sat at my computer, went through the AFCU website to get to Autoland, and chose the car I was looking to buy. Stephanie, our Autoland representative, called me back right away, worked out all of the details of the trade-in that I had and found the car I wanted. Stephanie was not only fast and efficient, she personally delivered the new car to me at work and took my trade-in back with her. Now, that’s service!! - Vanessa D., California
I use my AFCU debit card to buy fresh produce and support the local farmer’s market in San Luis Obispo. As a college student, it’s nice to have a Checking Account that doesn’t charge me fees or have a minimum balance that I need to worry about when it’s time to buy text books or school supplies. Plus, I can use the ATMs on campus for free because they participate in the same network as AFCU! - Shannon R., California
