I BECAME USAA MEMBER AFTER HAVING A REALLY BAD EXPIRIENCE WITH ANOTHER BANK THAT I OPENED UP AN ACCOUNT WITH RIGHT BEFORE I SHIPPED OFF TO BASIC TRAINING.WHEN I GOT TO MY FIRST DUTY STATION I ALWAYS HAD TO MAKE AT LEAST 10 CALLS A MONTH WITH DIFFERENT ISSUES TO THE BANK I HAD AND FINALLY GOT FED UP WITH IT THAT I STARTED ASKING MY COWORKERS WHAT BANK WOULD THEY RECOMMEND AND EVERYONE SAID ...USAA.SO I GAVE IT A TRY AND STILL TILL THIS DAY USAA HASN'T FAILED ME ONE BIT! I'M SO GLAD I MADE THE MOVE OF ALL MY ACCOUNTS TO USAA AND I AM NEVER CHANGING IT.WHEN I GOT MARRIED MY HUSBAND HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS WITH THE BANK HE USED TO HAVE....BEING MILITARY ITS KIND OF HARD TO HANDLE BUSINESS WITH YOUR BANK IN PERSON WHEN YOU'RE 1000'S OF MILES AWAY AND NEITHER MY PREVIOUS OR HIS BANK UNDERSTOOD THAT...HE COULDN'T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TOLD HIM THAT USAA REFUNDS ATM SURCHARGES,GIVES INTEREST ON CHECKING AND SAVINGS AND HAS ALL THESE OTHER MEMBER DISCOUNTS THAT MOST OF THE BANKS OUT THERE DO NOT HAVE.HE'S A MEMBER HIMSELF AND OUR YEAR OLD SON HAS A USAA MEMBER NUMBER BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ONCE HE STARTS MAKING HIS OWN MONEY IT WILL BE IN GOOD HANDS NO MATTER WHAT THE CASE MIGHT BE,GETTING A REGULAR ACCOUNT,INSURANCE OR A LOAN.
