Redneck Bank is the Internet Banking Division of Bank of the Wichitas which is based in Oklahoma
I signed up for Redneck Bank a couple years ago when they were touting the best interest rate. There was a limited window for signing up with them and I was very happy with getting an extra 1/2% higher than anywhere else. Another benefit was having a check card that pulled from my savings account.
I will be cancelling my account with them within the next couple days for a couple of reasons. One major beef I've had with them is the antiquated and non-user friendly website. Honestly, their website is almost unusable. I figured out how to set up a couple recurring transfers and they have faithfully been coming out of my main account. My problem now is that there is no way to cancel these recurring transactions, either on the website or on their customer service. They are not even showing up under future transactions. I asked about just cancelling my account and they said I couldn't as long as there were pending transfers. But I will always have a pending transfer since something comes out every week. Since they can't cancel my transfers and I can't cancel my transfers I don't know how I can even cancel the account.
While initially I was happy with this bank, this has proven frustrating enough to take my business elsewhere.
I fell upon Redneck bank while online and I was hooked. I appreciate a sense of humor.....who says banking cant be fun and still a good bank! I opened a free checking. I received my bankcard and other documents very quickly! God love them, they sent me cute little key chain and cozie. Which might not seem like much but no other bank has ever given me anything for being their customer! I found it to be a sweet little gesture. The best part is that they answer the phone! I mean to say a human being, usually female from my experience with awesome manners and super customer service skills. This bank reminds me of an 'old school' small town bank where everyone knows everyone else. Even though it is online, it feels intimate! I just love this bank and I will do all my banking through them! More power to the little guy!!!
Who can resist the smiling horse on RNB website and checking card? ;-)
It was the reason I opened a RNB reward checking account almost 2 years ago, beside the 4% interest rate. The application process was easy. There was a real person answering your phone call (after 5 rings max). It was a great customer service after getting used to answering machine at other banks hotline.
Unfortunately, RNB limits the balance to $10K, which leave it less interesting to savers.
