Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Credit Union I've been a member since 1978 and love PSECU. It's the best thing since sliced bread!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never could live without it now that I found it! I use this card for everything, fuel, food,mail order, automatic withdrawals on certain bills. I is a "diamond in the rough find" when you have to use some kind of card for internet purchases and fuel if you don't want to go inside the place. I just move my money from my checking to the Rewards card to pay for my monthly budgeted bills that I schedule to come out of the rewards card. The rewards are "Rewarding" I wish I would have applied for this sooner! Its nice to know I have everything in one place; savings,mm,checking and credit card; without those bothersome other sites to log in to see my balance or when something is due. Very convenient one stop banking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rewards dollars make me smile! If you pay off your credit card balance each month, the Founder's Card rewards dollars equate to extra dollars in your pocket. I always enjoy seeing rewards dollars add up in my account and putting them towards my savings. I've been a member for many years and always appreciate your exceptional customer service. Thanks, PSECU!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Card disallows setting up a re-occurring payment via online banking. Basically, card-user has limited, to zero capability to make payments as the Card-user desires using online payment system. In other words, if you prefer to send regular, money PAYMENTS to the card account bi-weekly, it is disallowed. If you want to send payments on the 1st and 15th of each month; it is disallowed. Who wants a card that you can't pay the way THAT you want to pay? Never had a credit card that made making payments to it as difficult as this one. Especially if transferring money from your account has to be done MANUALLY ever time. Waste of time. Inconvenient. Other bank credit cards will gladly accept your money in PAYMENTS the way you prefer and they offer better cash back percentages and concierge services.
