Bank Of America -- Can Be A Good Bank

Posted by: 51hh | Aug 21, 2010

I have been banking with BofA for many many years, from Baybank to Bank of Boston, then BofA.  I have to admit that, in addition to the amazing numbers of ATMs everywhere, they also offer superb customer service (although I have to say that I am their premier member). 

The bank is a good bank only when situation arises: Recently I made an error on their BillPay and paid twice (at $2,000) to one of my BofA credit card accounts.  This error, in turn, created insufficient funding in my savings account.  They sent me an e-mail within a day, paid the double amount even though there is insufficint fund in my account, and did not charge me a cent on the overdraft. 

When I called the BofA credit card department, they initiated an ACH and returned the second (double) payment to my savings account within two business days.

And this was just one example of their excellent customer service that I enjoyed over the years!  BTW, I also have their fee-free HELOC (with a huge amount), at a rate of 2.24%. 

I know that BofA is well-known for their poor customer service and greediness in charging customer fees after fees.  But this customer has been a long-term loyal customer and continue to be one.  So far, I have only good things to say about them. 

Efficent, Speedy, and Very Friendly

My experience with Bank of America has always been very professional and considerably enjoyable. I always feel like my transactions are safe and treated with the respect they deserve. The customer service I have experienced has always been polite and courteous. They have been willing to go above and beyond on multiple occasions. For example, I once made a cash deposit into the wrong account. It was my error but I was able to resolve the issue online in a manner of minutes. The service is truly exceptional. I never am left waiting during online or brick and mortar visits. Overall, I highly recommend this bank. I expect only the best when dealing with my financial security, that is why I choose and stay with Bank of America. The speed of service, friendliness, and professionalism simply cannot be matched. I would know, I've tried them all out!

Slow ACH Transfers (With Workaround)

Posted by: steved | Mar 19, 2016

I have a BofA checking account that I got with Preferred Rewards that I use for local banking services. I ran some tests to see how long it would take to transfer money from my other accounts (at Ally Bank) to BofA.

Initiate transfer at BofA web site: 3 days
Initiate transfer at Ally Bank web site: 2 days
Initiate transfer at Merrill Lynch web site, and then transfer to BofA: 1 day

Note also that BofA charges $3 if you initiate a transfer out of your account from their web site (!!!).

Bottom line: It never makes sense to use BofA's web site to do an ACH transfer. Always use your other bank's site. The fastest way to get money to your account is to use Merrill Lynch's site to transfer from your bank to ML (1 day) and then to transfer from ML to BofA (instantaneous).

Too many disadvantages

Posted by: TexasGirl | Jun 6, 2016

We currently have a banking account with Bank of America. Often I resort to using our our banking accounts and prefer not to deal with BOA as much as possible. Bank of America is great if you need to make transfers between accounts, and for that only. However, if you need any kind of support, help, have any questions, or even need to speak with a customer care rep, this place will have you on your heels of anger. Why do I need to schedule an appointment to walk in this bank, yet not at any other banks? Finally, once you do get to talk to someone they act like they are too busy to handle your needs. Everyone seems like they have more important things to do. If you call for help via phone, they tend to ask too many questions, and refuse to help you without you giving secured information to them over a phone which could easily be open source monitored. Every location I visit, the staff is absolutely rude and over-all they act as if they just don't want my business, hence I try and stay away from here as much as possible.
