Another reason I’ll gladly always have Sound accounts as long as I live in WA. Not just great member service but also a great app that is easy to navigate and very intuitive.

Been with Sound since it was Telco Credit Union, and I have to say, as a member of another Bank, that This App for Sound is by far the Best I’ve had the pleasure of working with. So easy and user friendly. Thanks Sound for being a Great bank and providing ALL your Members with the BEST SERVICE.
