I have been a member of this bank for over 15 years. I have never had any major issues, and everyone is always helpful and friendly. But there is a major problem with electronic services!!! I have bee...n through HELL this year with my debit/credit card. For some reason today my card was accidently closed. This is the third time I have had a card closed in six months. There was a Home Depot breach and my card has been replaced three times. A new card was issued this week and my previous card closed without notifying me. A new card was requested today but will take 10 to 14 days to get here. It's Christmas!! Earlier this year a replacement card was sent to me with the wrong name!!!

This is a mess and not worth sticking with this bank. I would not recommend banking here when you can bank elsewhere with much more ease!!

I think you need to hire someone to answer the phones! I've been on hold for over 20 minutes now. Not the first time. Believe me I do have better things to do! So Unprofessional!!!!

Don't ever get a checking account here, you'll definitely regret it. As much as it pains me to say it, you would be better off getting a Wal-mart debit card. Wish I could leave less than a star. Th...e people at Sandia Area are very friendly though. See More

Lousy service, that keeps getting worse!!!

The ATM Locater app for Smart Phones does NOT work! ...

Sandia Area Credit Union no longer allows comments on their Facebook page. Last year they did. Guess they no longer want to help customers when they have a problem. Being on social media means having to answer to your customers! No wonder Sandia Area Credit Union has backed away!

The "Express" Dive-Thru takes longer than going inside! Why have ONLY ONE teller trying to handle FIVE lanes of cars? It can take 30 minutes of waiting in the hot sun, just to move up one place!

Whjy does EVERY single deposit we make REQUIRE a several minutes search for someone to APPROVE of it???

The staff is always polite and friendly and all. Why isn't this bank run as well?
