People’s Choice Credit Union lives up to its name time and time again, this year picking up a win in the Mozo People’s Choice Awards for Excellent Customer Service.

As part of our judging process, we asked thousands of Aussies what they think of their banks’ customer service - that covers phone, email, and face to face interactions. We learned that while the Banking Royal Commission might have dealt a blow to the reputations of many of the big banks, it looks like there are still several institutions that are doing good by their customers.

Among the winners, member-owned banks were particularly well represented, with five taking home awards. This year marks the third year PCCU has been recognised, and it’s no wonder. With more than 365,000 members and over 70 years’ experience, PCCU has had plenty of time to perfect its craft.

So in light of its win, we decided to shine a spotlight on PCCU and some of the products it offers. Let’s take a look.

PCCU Term Deposit

  • 2.55% p.a. for 7 month term
  • No account keeping fees
  • Terms range from 2 months to 5 years

With the interest rate environment set to drop in the coming months, locking in a quality term deposit now is something many of us should be considering. And if you’re banking with PCCU, you’re spoiled for choice. The PCCU Term Deposit ranges from 2 months to 5 years, with interest rates of 2.55% p.a. available on 7 month terms.
