YEs they have good loan rates but the list of them blowing goes on and on.

I once got a good loan rate from them but had some hard points on making the car loan work for me. They said they could get it done and I went back to negotiating with the car dealership. When it was all said and done, I was happy driving away with a new car. Guess what? The woman at the phone center took a personal loan out in my name on my line of credit, paid down my trade in loan to get my payments on my new car! I did not know about this personal loan line of credit until the following month! Oh by the way, the interest rate on that loan was double what my car loan was! Biotch. I went to the headquarters to fight what they did and the manager of that area said "the fact of the matter is that the loan money went to you, so you have to pay it back!" F them. Hours of fighting and I gave up.

The next thing I like what they do is not touch an ATM deposit for about a week, and tell you the money is not available! Then when you expect them to do that exact same thing thinking you have a night leeway, guess what, that money is taken right away! God I hate them but stay with them on a limited basis because of their good loan rates. Are all credit unions like this? at least you can expect Wells Fargo to be dicks.....

I am done ranting...just watch your back at Wings Financial.

There are many better CU's around both MSP and DTW... I have no idea about MEM. I wouldn't give Wings the time of day personally.

I'd say no. The CU I use around DTW has had great loan rates and great service. Been using them for over 15 years.

I have done my banking with them for over 20 years. All my checking, savings, car loans, airplane loan, a business loan, and credit cards. I've never had any issues with them. Always easy, online banking has been great.

I have been a member since I was about 12 years old. My dad was at NWA and had been there for his whole career and 25 years since. NWA Federal Credit Union ( Now Wings Financial ) has always and I mean ALWAYS been at the top as far as rates and service. Help during lay offs as well as strikes it's always been there for its members.

I have been at NWA Fed Cred for 23 years. I have never had a problem with anything. Houses, boats, cars, motorcycles. You name it, they have helped me with it, and always come through.

I second that, no problems. Plus, where else can you find a full service banking counter right in the airport!?

Very happy with Wings.... had mortgage, four car loans over the last 10 years including one about a month ago.

Dealer asked what rate I got on the loan, I said 4.5% (through Wings).... his jaw dropped.

Same here. I used it to leverage myself a better rate through the dealer a couple of cars ago. At the time, Wings' rate was 4.75%, and that was damned good. The finance guy at the dealer really wanted my business (800 credit score), so he offered me 4.25%, even though their normal rate would have been nearly 6% for someone with average credit. Needless to say, I took it.

I have been with NWAFCU / Wings CU for 14 years. Never had a problem with them and have always been happy with them. Sorry to hear about your bad experience and it's too bad they didn't make good on your complaint.
