Ally Bank

Overview / Commentary

Ally Bank, a advertiser, is a Utah-based Internet bank that focuses primarily on offering consumer savings products, including savings, checking, money market, certificate of deposit (CD), and IRA accounts. The bank also provides credit cards and auto financing services and tools on its lending side and helps customers determine whether to lease or buy a vehicle.

Ally Bank’s online savings account regularly offers one of the highest interest rates in the country as far as savings accounts go. It comes with no monthly maintenance fees and no minimum deposit to open. Deposits and withdrawals can be performed through Ally’s fast online ACH transfer service, and up to six withdrawals per month are allowed without a fee. Customers can also write cashier’s checks out of the account for free.

Ally’s Interest checking account also offers a highly competitive compounding interest rate for balances of $15,000 or more. It comes with a free MasterCard debit card, free checks, unlimited check writing, and free ATM fee reimbursements from any ATM nationwide. This checking account has no minimum initial deposit and no monthly maintenance fees.

The Money Market account offered by Ally is very similar to its online savings account, but with the added flexibility of several checking account functions like a debit card, free checks, and ATM fee reimbursements. The Money Market’s interest rate is typically quite competitive, and no minimum deposit or monthly balance requirements makes it a very attractive hybrid account.

CDs and IRA CDs are also available and come in term lengths ranging from 3 months to 5 years. Ally features a Raise Your Rate CD that affords one bump-up allowance if there is a rate increase during the life of the CD. Its No Penalty usually offers a rate similar to the savings account, and has discussed the strategies behind opening one or the other.

Ally Bank online banking provides a sophisticated and secure platform on which its deposit accounts are managed. Ally eCheck Deposit offers an easy way to deposit checks via a smartphone camera, computer scanner, or free paid-postage envelopes. Ally also makes it easy to transfer funds between Ally accounts or between Ally and non-Ally accounts for free, and that includes transfers associated with paying bills as well. Mobile banking apps make it easy and convenient to accomplish all of the aforementioned tasks while on the go. Ally Bank has no physical branches, and therefore offers free ATM fee reimbursements for all of its accounts.

Ally Bank was originally established as GMAC Automotive Bank in 2004. In 2008, the bank suffered significant losses as a result of the bankruptcy of automakers GM and Chrysler. The bank has grown stronger in recent years, having repaid over $6 billion of its government debt as of May of 2013. Ally is headquartered in Midvale, Utah and services over 1 million opened deposit accounts through its online banking platform.

Attn : Ally Financial Ceo's Goodmorning !

Posted by: |

Why is Ally Financial management allowing all this negativity to be posted against their bank that they represent. Consistent negative reviews against Ally Financial is a strong oversight from corporate leaders and very bad press for Ally Financial and its future attraction to new customers.
Maybe it is time to weed out some bad employees and to reinstate stronger work ethics and customer relations training so that customers can return to having a more confident and consistent working relationship once again and having peace of mind that our finances are safe and secure. Thank you.
Strongly Supporting Ally Financial !
Personally speaking my family and I have had no major problems with any of the Ally bank staff for the past 10 years including making transfers . Any problems that may have occurred were addressed in a timely and professional manner. As a business owner myself I know how hard it is to please everyone and I am no where close to being on a national level as Ally Financial. Just looking out for my bank who looks out for me and my family, God bless !

Former Gold Standard But No Longer

Posted by: |

tl;dr: Ally is still probably the best "hub" account out there but they've really deteriorated in recent years.

My opinion is that they've sacrificed good for good-enough-for-scale. Maybe it's the industry, the business model, or the margins but it's clear that Ally feels it's in their best interest to have a large number of "meh" accounts than a decent number of good accounts.

I've reached this conclusion by assuming the funding for their needless advertising blitz is coming from their lower, no longer competitive rates. Furthermore, their service has truly suffered from their expanded customer base.

In the end, I'm still with them and still actively using them but I'm no longer advocating or singing their praises as they've just shown us long term customers that we're not as valuable as rapid soulless expansion.

Reps Can't Grasp The Simplest Questions

Posted by: |

After going round and round with various reps for Ally on a simple question of interest payments and reporting to the IRS, I find that their representatives are very uninformed. This includes supervisors.
You will have to decide whether a few basis points is worth the wasted time and aggravation.
Me, I'm switching banks!

Claimed Payroll Check Was Fraudulent

Ally has been by FAR the worst experience I have ever had.

I deposited a check into a new checking account which came directly from my job's payroll. Ally labeled the check as fraudulent, closed my account, charged me for a "fraudulent" check, and their customer service will not help when we call them.

They have told me that the fraud is now associated with my social security number, despite there being NO FRAUD.

Ally Bank CD Rates

Ally Bank's certificates of deposit have three variations. The first is the traditional type of CD with a fixed interest rate until maturity. Terms from 3 months to 5 years are available. The second type is a no-penalty CD. You are allowed a penalty-free early withdrawal any time during the term after 6 days from when the CD is funded. The third type is a bump-up CD called Raise Your Rate CD. It's a fixed rate CD that gives you the option to raise the rate one time during the term to the current CD rate for that same term. All CDs have no minimum balance requirement, although interest rates may vary depending on the amount deposited. The early withdrawal penalties for each of the CDs are shown in the detailed tables below for each product. The grace period at maturity when you can close the CD without penalty is 10 days after the maturity date. With Ally's Ten Day Best Rate Guarantee, when you fund your CD within ten days of opening or when your Ally CD renews, you automatically get the best rate Ally offers during those ten days.
