Credit Union in Arlington, Virginia?
August 28, 2011 10:03 AM   Subscribe

I'm moving to Arlington, Virginia in a week or two and want to switch from using a corporate bank to a credit union. None is available through my employer, so I'm hoping there will be one for residents of that area. I'd like them to have a functional online banking interface which is compatible with Mint.

I have a USAA account and it gets along with Mint just as well as my Wachovia one.

Arlington Community Federal Credit Union - not a member, so I can't vouch for the interface.

Do you have a family member who did military service? They'd have to come open an accountaccount too, but Navy Federal is gret- I dunno how compatible their online interface is with Mint, but I use it almost exclusively.

No military connections to speak of, so those options won't work for me. Thanks anyway.

Go through the phone books and call all the credit unions. Some have very cut & dried policies about what groups get in, others use more of a network system, where if your neighbor's sister used to work in eligible company Y, they can somehow justify letting you in.

I googled

credit union eligibility

and found this site, which obligingly coughed up local credit unions for my current and several previous employers.

If you can't find anything you like, BB&T is supposed to be a top notch operation.

Pentagon Federal Credit Union. No military connection required -- give 10 bucks to the Red Cross and you're in. Works with Mint.
