So Far, So Good!

Posted by: |

I got in on the Luminary money market, where I was earning 5.25%. I read on this site that they were now offering a Surge account, which was paying 5.35%. I sent them a quick message through my account page asking if I could switch over to a Surge account. Within just a few hours, I received an answer saying that they would switch me over within 24 hours, which they did. Very happy with the service I've received so far!

Brilliant Bank? More Like Backwards Bank

I've had a lot of bank accounts and so far this is the only one that charges a fee to make a simple ACH transfer. Edit. After a while I've decided that I'm closing my account with them. Normally I'd keep a small amount of money in an unused account just to keep it open for future use but apparently they have a $2000 minimum balance requirement or else they charge you a fee. Good bye brilliant bank. I should have done my research better.

No Wires Out Only External Initiated Achs >5K

Just spoke with a CSR manager. Can take wires in but cant send wires out. Internally initiated ACHs limited to 5k per day and month.
No limit on externally initiated achs
Hotel California rules of money transfer I guess

Other reviewers are correct - the account will fund from your external account INSTANTLY, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to get your money out. You have to CALL to schedule a wire which then takes DAYS. DO NOT USE THIS BANK.
