“As recently retired folks, we were trying to reduce expenses wherever we could. Our daughter, a GTE member since 2008, suggested that we join our local GTE since we could forego the $25 per month service fee on our current bank account. Since we have been doing all our own banking online and at ATMs for years, we often wondered why we were paying $25 each month for our checking account. After joining GTE, we were so pleased to have checking with no fees and service that was incomparably better than we have experienced anywhere in the past. Thanks, GTE, for contributing to our happy retirement!”

“I love GTE for the fact that they believed in me when no one else did. With a credit score of under 500 when I first started with them, they welcomed me with open arms when I financed my first car. Three cars later and a credit score now of 700+, all financed with GTE, I am glad that GTE was there when I needed them. I have referred five members and I am always on the look out to get new members for GTE and of course the nice gesture of giving me $25 per member. THANK YOU GTE! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!”

I love that GTE works for me wherever I am in the country. Due to military I have lived all over the country (9 states)! GTE has allowed me to do my banking long distance since before it was a fad to be online. Even when my work made an error on my direct deposit pay, GTE figured out where it went and literally went down the street to get my money from where it was wrongly sent. They have always been AWESOME for me! (And they made it soooo easy to buy our new Jeep!)"
