Pretty Good Choice For A Main Bank

Posted by: |

I've used Amalgamated's online banking services (Give-back checking and Online Savings) for over a year now. I chose them as my main bank since there are local branches where I can go in in case something goes wrong or for certain things (e.g., I recently had to go in to add a beneficiary). I'm all about online banking, but I do prefer something with a physical presence for my main bank.

Their online rates are okay, but far from top-notch. Their online experience is also okay but not great -- they use iBanking stuff like a lot smaller banks do, which has an ugly UI but is pretty reliable and gets the job done. Their customer service has been great when I needed it. And they're also a pretty ethical bank which is important to me.

I do have other online savings account that give higher interest rates. But, overall, I've been quite happy with using Amalgamated as my primary bank for over a year now.
