Amboy Direct-Great Experience!

I have nothing but good things to say about Amboy Direct. Everyone that I have dealt with has been wonderful and very helpful. I have also tried some other internet banks and Amboy is by far the best. The way Amboy Direct is set up is perfect for the way I like to bank. There is never any hassle and if there are small problems they are solved right away.

I've been banking with Amboy Direct for more than 10 years now. When I first started banking with them, I was really happy with the fact that I would be getting 4.0% interest on my savings account. But that started dropping fast over the years and it is now at 0.80%. To put that in perspective. I've got over $70,000 saved up now and only made a little over $43 in interest last month. That is a crying shame. Still, that beats the minuscule percentage rate that I was getting from Bank of America. But I miss those days of higher interest rates. Unfortunately, even though online banks give you a slightly higher interest rate, it's still not very much, and all the online bank rates are about equal with Amboy. That being said, I've never had any problems with them doing deposits and withdrawal. And the couple times I've spoke to customer service on the phone, they were very polite and answered all my questions.

All this being said, I would recommend Amboy Direct online banking to a friend or family since it beats making pennies in interest at brick and mortar banks. But I sincerely hope that in the near future their savings account interest rates start to rise again.

Used To Be A Good Bank

This used to be a good bank. Amboy Direct wants to be an online or internet only provider but they lack the tools to offer an effective product and experience. The web experience has only the most rudimentary of features and is quite limiting. Unfortunately letters, calls and emails to the bank go unanswered leaving effectively ZERO customer service. I did finally reach one representative who was wholly unsympathetic to my needs and referred me to the anonymous email address which they don't answer or support.

There are better places to park your money.
