I opened a savings account online. Bank then lowered rates. Attempted to transfer money using ACH. There is a $2000/transaction limit on outgoing transfers and can only do one transaction per 5 day period. Still attempted the ACH; failed. Called to get money sent to me by check. Spent one hour on the phone. Clueless customer service person kept putting me on hold; suggested that she could try to remove limits on ACH (she could not after more time wasted on hold) or have wire transfer ($80 which I refused). Was finally told that a "account manager" would call me to arrange for a check to be sent; "hopefully today; if not, tomorrow." Yep, could not even get a check sent to me after ONE HOUR on the phone.
I've done online banking for decades; this bank is the absolute worst.
I opened a 2 year CD at a rate of 2.50% 10 months ago. It was an excellent rate at the time. It is now 10 months later and no interest has been credited to the account. I made a long distance move around that time and don’t have access to the disclosures, so I suspect this is one of those situations where the interest will not be paid until maturity. Also, setting up the account was not straightfoward, and my funds were taken from my funding account before it had been verified.
Pretty sketchy practices. I plan to close out this account and take the early deposit hit. Competitor rates are currently over 2.80% so I expectto make up for this hit.
