Thunderbolt Branch Inside Look

Originally constructed in 1977, our Thunderbolt branch was our first branch location in the Treasure Valley and initially housed both our corporate headquarters, as well as teller stations to serve our members. It's the most well-known of our branches and can often be busy during peak errand hours.

Because of how long we've served the Boise community, Thunderbolt has accumulated some nicknames over the years. The most popular alternative branch names include "CapEd's Main Branch," the "Cole and Franklin branch," "Tbolt," and, our personal landmark-related favorite, "the CapEd branch by the mall."

At Thunderbolt, you'll find a traditional teller counter, coin machine, and a convenient stop for your banking needs on the way to or from the shops in Boise Town Square.

"Credit Unions have joined together and created "shared" branches. This means you can go into any credit union participating in shared branching and access some of the same features you'd be able to access as if it were your credit union..." Read more about shared branching. CapEd offers shared branching at the following locations: McMillan, Parkcenter, Thunderbolt, Eagle, and Kuna.

Signature Validation authenticates the signature and capacity of a person requesting redemption or transfer of securities.

Medallion Signature Guarantee was developed to respond to requests from financial services institutions and commercial entities when processing non-securities in business-related transactions.

A Notary Public is an official appointed by the state government to help people avoid fraud when signing important documents like mortgage loans. Understandably, a lot of people outside of the banking or business industries don't know what Notary Public means. Learn more from the experts on the National Notary Association website .
