Incrediblebank.com, a division of River Valley Bank, is an internet only bank. The main offering is a high-yield checking account that can be opened online from any state. An online certificate of deposit was offered for a couple of months.
I was hoping to get a decent interest on my $5000 deposit, i.e. somethng like 1.16% per year. Wow! IncredibleBank gave me $4.77 interest and applied $15 per month fee for the paper statement that I received in the mail but never requested. Every month that I had my money at the IncredibleScamBank, I lost part of it. Of course, that $15 fee was probably mentioned somewhere in their fine print. Of course, they a legit to do that scam and I am supposed to be smart enough not to deposit my money with this "incredible" offer. I then wanted to get my remaing money out of the inccredible hole as soon as possible... Not so easy! Still working on it. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time and money on this too incredible bank.
Had a great experience setting up online CD. One glitch when doing fund verification process, but all else went smoothly. Recommend speaking with Bhawika Bhakta who is responsible for the online banking if any issues. The bank was very responsive and speedy in the account setup process compared to other banks.
I've tried to open an account 3 times. Major headache with the online application. Get to the funding page and it won't go forward. Also impossible to cancel out of adding a beneficiary. Called them and they say they have problems, not sure why. Tried in both Mozilla and IE. Doesn't look like it is possible for me to open an account.. very strange indeed... good luck.. R
I have been reading some of the reviewers who are unhappy with Incredible Bank...don't understand so many poor reviews i.e not being able to transfer more than $10,000- at a time, (there isn't a bank that allows this without some type of penalty), poor customer service (don't know who these people dealing with but I have never had a poor customer service person to deal with), and lowering rates (well try getting a better rate somewhere else and you will find even lower rates). As you can see by my review I am a very happy customer and would give 4 stars except I have had a few problems with the interbank transfer process...not that big of a deal if I plan ahead...but couldn't give 5 stars:-(
