We get requests all the time for NFC and ATM locations, and we really do listen. Every suggestion received gets logged for review and added to any existing requests for similar locations.
We assess existing NFC locations and the current markets we serve on an annual basis and wanted to bring some transparency to a few of the considerations we evaluate when adding a new location:
In addition, when looking at potential ATM locations, we consider:
You can read more about upcoming ATM enhancements in an earlier article here, and we’re looking forward to serving these neighborhoods with new locations coming later this year and into 2018:
Hi! I moved from west side to central Washington. I then got a loan through you guys. I know we have 1 shared branch here in Yakima but it would be nice if BECU was here. Your rates are awesome! And you guys are great to work with.
Welcome to the MIX community @allysilk! Congrats on the move and new loan! We appreciate the shout out and I'm glad you're benefiting from our great rates! You're right though, there's only one partner credit union in Yakima - WSECU. As we continue to grow, you never know where we'll end up, so be sure to stay tuned here for updates. Thanks again for posting, have a great weekend! JohnS
Rainier Valley/Beacon Hill are sorely missing out on an NFC.
Thanks @dranore, we'll get this added to the list for consideration. JohnS
Hi @Brenda, thanks for the suggestion! As always we'll keep you in the loop on any upcoming ATM additions! Thanks, JohnS
I think there is a lack of ATM access in certain locations around Lakewood, and South Tacoma. More ATM's would not only increase accessibility for our members, but would in ways encourage new members to sign on with BECU.
Good morning, @Patrickmartinjr! We always have an eye out for new, convenient locations, so thanks for sharing! Also we're part of a robust network of partner ATMs, so there's a good chance there may be one in the areas you mentioned. You can find surcharge-free ATM's by searching our website. Thanks! JohnS
Hi @Cplatz, welcome to the MIX! We're always exploring new areas to add to our network of branches and we'll keep you posted with any new developments in your area. Thanks! JohnS
I would like to see a BECU ATM in Uptown Gig Harbor. The other drive up CU that is there is very unreliable. Most of the time it either can't accept cash or checks or out of serviced. Recenlty it took cash and the machine shut down. I am having a hard time clearing up that transaction now. I was hoping that BECU would be represented at the new Fred Meyer shopping center.
It would be wonderful if you put an ATM in downtown Arlington. There is only one at Smokey Point on the Arlington side and with the growth occuring in and around our city I'm sure a second ATM that is located in downtown would be beneficial to your customers.
Open a satellite BECU in north Everett. Somewhere between 41st and Rucker north to Everett Ave & Rucker. Near the 98201 zip code. There is no conveient BECU banking between the Evergreen location and the I5 & Exit 206 location. PLease open something in the middle. Why was the ATM at the Rite Aid on Evergreen removed?
Thanks for sharing @deborakay! We recently introduced a new member benefit that refunds ATM fees up to $6 per month for Member Advantage Members, which is really convenient when you need to use an ATM and a BECU machine isn't near. For more info on that program, please click here. If you have any questions, please let me know. JohnS
Please consider adding either a branch or ATM somewhere on Aurora or Greenwood between 125th & 155th. The closest branch is currently on Northgate Way near Roosevelt. The shopping areas at 130th & Aurora would be ideal.
Hi @hdaveno. We consider several variables when looking to expand our ATM and branch locations. We do have a few partner credit unions in the 98201 zip code that you can use when you need to. You can find those locations by searching our site for "partner credit unions" using the 98201 zip code.
Earlier this year, we announced that our ATM partnership with Rite Aid would be coming to an end on July 31, 2018. Starting then, members would no longer see BECU-branded ATMs inside Rite Aid stores. This decision was made in part because we had previously introduced new ATM fee refunds for Member Advantage members. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. JohnS
Those of us in Enumclaw would love to have a financial center here. Auburn, Bonney Lake and Maple Valley are extremely inconvenient and the ATMs here always have lines.Wells Fargo closed their branch here. Plenty of room to move into!
Also, quite a few BECU employees work at BECU already, would love to have a way to shorten their commutes.
Hi @LatigoLiz. Welcome to the MIX community and thanks for sharing your idea for a new location in Enumclaw. We'll be sure to update you with any new developments. Thanks! JohnS
Those of us in SE King County would love to see one in Enumclaw. We're a bit of an island out here and our BECU ATMs constantly have lines at the busy times of the day. We dilike having to go to Auburn, Bonney Lake and Maple Valley for in-person services. And Wells Fargo just vacated, so there is a spot available to move into I am guessing.And we have quite a few BECU employees that would also love to have a Financial Center to call home or to use as a drop station for telecommuting work.
You bet, @LatigoLiz! Have a great day! JohnS
Thanks for adding your support for this location. - Reiners
The greater Rainier Valley has a lack of financial service centers, particularly along convenient transit routes. One of the light rail stations (Othello, Columbia City, Mount Baker) would be very convenient locations to serve residents of South Seattle.
Consider opening at least one branch in Vancouver, WA. We have a Boeing site within 25 miles of here (Gresham, OR). It is a huge hassle to have to travel to at least Lacey in order to do any banking which cannot be handled online. In fact, this resulted in our opening an account at another credit union due to the close proximity.
There are no BECU ATMs in Lakeland Hills or around Lake Tapps. You have to go to either Auburn or Bonney Lake. Lakeland Hills is a very popular area and half of Lake Tapps would benefit from placing an ATM in this area.
Hi @Winniwoman, welcome to the MIX and thank you for your thoughtful feedback! We're always exploring new areas to add to our network of branches and we'll definitely keep you posted with any new developments in the Port Townsend area. Thanks! JohnS
Hi, @Tmangosing Thanks for your thoughtful feedback! I'm glad to hear you use Sound Credit Union for some of your banking needs. If we have any new developments in this area, we'll be sure to let you know. Have a great evening! JohnS
