Ally Bank, an online-only institution, offers an array of deposit and mortgage products and services. The Utah-based bank provides checking accounts, high-yield savings accounts, money market accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs). The subsidiary of digital financial services company Ally Financial Inc. also issues credit cards and auto loans and includes investment products in its lineup.

Ally’s Spending Account is its FDIC-insured checking account with no monthly maintenance fees and no overdraft fees. All accounts earn interest, but accounts with larger balances may earn a higher rate. You’ll get access to more than 55,000 fee-free Allpoint ATMs and reimbursement of up to $10 per statement cycle for fees charged at other ATMs nationwide.

The Ally Bank Savings Account offers an annual percentage yield (APY) of 4.20%, with no monthly maintenance fees or minimum balance requirements. The money market account also earns an APY of 4.20%, with no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. Rates are accurate as of June 6, 2024.

Ally has a selection of three CDs. The high-yield CD comes in terms from three months to five years and pays an APY of 4.25%. The 11-month No Penalty CD has an APY of 4.00% and no minimum deposit to open, plus you can withdraw your full balance and interest any time after the first six days of funding the CD.

The Raise Your Rate CD comes in two- or four-year terms, with an APY of 3.75% and no minimum opening deposit required. If the bank’s rate goes up for your term and balance, you will have the opportunity to raise your rate once for the two-year CD or twice for the four-year CD.

Note that you can’t make cash deposits into checking, savings or money market accounts, but the bank allows remote check deposits, direct deposits, deposits by mail, online transfers and wire transfers.

You can access live support 24/7 via chat, email or phone at 877-247-2559.

Love Ally Bank!

Posted by: |

I love Ally. I've been with them for a few years now. The website and the phone app is really nice, and I love the buckets system for the HYSA. I really love the debit card and no fees.

My only complaint would be that I had trouble opening the account years ago. I kept getting denied because they wanted to check my credit (which I keep frozen). Also, they claimed they couldn't verify my identity. I tried every 6 months or so for a couple of years. FINALLY, one day it went through, and I was approved. Ever since then, I have had a 100% positive experience with them. I love this bank.

Ally Rendered My Active Account Dormant Without Warning

Posted by: |

Received snail mail from Ally today dated 10 days ago. Friendly advice that “they hadn’t heard from me in a while”, cited five ways to stay in touch, including logging into ally.com, which I already do at least monthly. No mention of rendering my account dormant or otherwise locking it. I haven’t moved money into or out of the account in probably over a year. I immediately called Ally per the number listed as another of the 5 friendly ways. Call was quickly answered by a knowledgeable young lady, sounded like the call hadn’t departed the continent for a foreign call center. Ran through ID confirmation protocol, then discovered a couple of frustrating contradictions to the contents of the snail mail. Ally’s computer is set up to dormant the account if money doesn’t move in and out of the account at intervals, the length of which the agent could not discover. Logging into the website isn’t adequate contact, unlike all of my other financial institutions. And by the time their snail mail reached my mailbox, the account was dormant and locked. I can log in, see my balance and confirm my linked account is still linked, but no commands are allowed. Message center: nothing, no warning, no notification of status change. So, from my standpoint, Ally has frozen my account, without warning, for nothing. They email me promos all the time, didn’t email their actual criteria to keep account active. The agent predicts two to three business days for the back office to free the dollars. Not happy in the meantime.
Addendum: Account reactivated after one business day, controls seem to work. Received a thoughtful-toned on-website message apologizing and explaining that intended protocols didn't happen, surprise dormancy was unintended. Apology accepted.

Banking 101

Law of Banking Inertia

First, create goodwill with prompt, professional customer service and highly competitive rates on deposits.
Once you are regarded as a leader for rates and service, let the rates and service decline below that of your competitors, and focus on executive salaries instead.
For several years, most people will simply keep their accounts and will not move to the competition.

Law of Banking Momemtum

Eventually, depositers will move their funds to the competition.
When they do, this can happen very quickly, as many depositers will quickly follow outspoken depositers.
You once were a great bank and you blew it.
