“It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.”
Disclosure: USAA flew me to San Antonio for a three day conference from November 6-8, 2013, put me up in a hotel room, and fed me all on their dime.
One more disclosure: I’d have written this anyway. I see too many people missing out on eligibility opportunities to not write about the topic. I’m a huge fan of USAA!
In the past two articles, I’ve pretty much done nothing but sing the praises of USAA. They’re a full-service financial company who can help eligible members from soup to nuts with all of the aspects of their lives dealing with money.
If they’re so great, why don’t I just wholeheartedly recommend anyone who’s eligible to turn everything over to them?
I’d love to do that. There’s no point in having someone pay me for information and service that they could get for free somewhere else.
However, there are a few areas where USAA falls short, and that’s what keeps me from telling anyone who’s either a member or eligible to hang up the phone with me and call USAA.
This isn’t to say that I don’t think that if you’re eligible that you shouldn’t use them, not at all. As I previously outlined, there are some great things about them.
But, nobody’s perfect, and neither is USAA.
