Great Service And Knowledgable

This is a great mid-sized bank, that offers all the services you need with great customer service and competitive rates & pricing. I especially like that they are owned by a foundation that gives their profits back to the communities they serve.

Great Bank!

Bremer Bank is an outstanding organization. I have always received great customer service here.

An added bonus is that they are owned by a nonprofit...The Otto Bremer Foundation. Profits are paid up to the foundation who then makes gifts in Bremer communities.

Overall, A Decent Bank

Posted by: Thomas777 | Aug 3, 2016

As I moved from college to professional life, I needed a banking institution that had actual brick and mortar branches. Trying to purchase a house with an online only bank is...more difficult than expected. So I reviewed all the banks in my area and found that Bremer Bank best suited my needs. I wanted to stay away from mega institutions like Wells Fargo or U.S. Bank etc. The only downside to my experience with Bremer was at my account opening. The officer that opened my account must have been working in offline mode, as I didn't receive my debit card or checks for two weeks after opening (after I called and inquired as to their whereabouts). However, this officer called me to apologize and sent me a card. Another irritating feature is that pending transactions take quite a bit of time to clear in their system. Apart from that, Bremer has been a reliable bank and is a good choice for any type of customer.

Worst Bank In The World

Posted by: xanaduus | Feb 8, 2018

Had safe deposit box, sent back 2 keys and in writing years ago, told them to close box, but because I didn't sign their FORM they keep sending me bills and today blocked me from opening another bank acct.


I have been with Bremer for almost a decade and the longer I continue banking with them, the worse they get. I use the auto pay feature to pay my bills. Lately I've been getting late fees because they bills are not paid on time, even though I have them set to pay at least one day before their due, so I backed the due date even more on Bremer's end.... Jokes on me because my mobile deposit didn't go through (and it's my fault for not checking my email) -- they charged 3 overdraft fees when the checks hadn't even cleared the other end stating I had insufficient funds -- but the checks hadn't even made it to the other end!! So I called to complain about this really shady sort of way to do business, I get told the check does this 10 day thing to the Federal Deposit and blah blah blah (bologna), then get told their online bill pay is actually through some other 3rd party.. So when you read Bremer's disclosure and it casually states in the online personal banking that, "It is our general policy to treat your account information as confidential. However, we will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transactions you make ONLY in the following situations:
1. Where it is necessary for completing transactions...." What they're really doing is giving ALL YOUR ACCOUNT INFO to some unnamed 3rd party. I do not like that. At. All. Neither should you.
The people at the Princeton location are nice, but the bank as a whole has really become a greedy place. All they want is your money and they'll spew out whatever it takes to justify their actions when they take it.
I'm pulling out of this bank ASAP and am making ABSOLUTE CERTAIN that any/all businesses I work with in the future are not affiliated with Bremer.

What A Waste

Just deposited a check in my account so I could pay my credit card bill online, paid the credit card bill when I got home and they charged me $35 for an overdraft fee. Do not use Bremer, there are tons of other better banks out there.

DO NOT bank at Bremer if you can help it. They have TERRIBLE customer service. Just had an emergency money situation with my sister passing away unexpectedly, and they REFUSED to help me by waiving a small fee I incurred because of the situation. I have been nothing but a model customer for them for 10 years and they said there was nothing they could do. UNACCEPTABLE!
