Schwab Bank Experience

Posted by: Hulkesagon | Dec 1, 2017

I must say that so far, I've had an excellent experience using Schwab Bank's online checking account. The account does everything I need it do. I am able to withdraw cash from ATM machines and have any and all fees that occur from them refunded at the end of month. Additionally, Schwab does not charge a monthly fee for maintaining your account, which is something that I cannot say for the brick and mortar banks I have used in the past.

The only flaw I have noticed is that you are unable to physical deposit cash into your account but outside of this, I cannot find any complaints with maintain an online checking account through Schwab. I would highly recommend Schwab to anyone that's looking to open a checking account.

Charles Schwab Went Above and Beyond for My Tax Returns

Charles Schwab is the best bank I've ever had a checking account with. This past tax season, my mother-in-law-to-be worked on my tax forms and accidentally didn't write out my account number completely. I panicked and called Charles Schwab's customer service. The man who answered was very polite and knowledgeable, and most importantly, from the US! I'm sure we've all heard horror stories about Indian call center mishaps, which is why I especially appreciated speaking to someone who's in the US.

The gentleman assured me that they would take care of it, and a couple of days later my tax return was on my Charles Schwab account! Even though it had been my mistake, they had taken care of it. I recommend Charles Schwab to everyone looking for a good bank. The ability to make mobile deposits also saves me a lot of time!

An Excellent Bank

Posted by: howardholt | Nov 7, 2017

I have a lot of bank accounts, and I wish I didn't. But my Charles Schwab account makes things easy. I can move funds into and out of my account quickly and without fees. Often, I have access to the funds immediately, which is very uncommon, as it usually takes days, or even a week for funds to clear. I am also impressed by their zero ATM fees. I can go anywhere and not have to worry about the fife to fifteen dollar ATM charges. It's great for trips abroad, and even the conversion fees are covered. My statements are also very clear to read, and track all the information I need. Because they are an online bank, they are also up to date with technology, and keep things very secure. I have never had a problem with them, and their customer service leaves me confident that I never will.

Great Support

Charles Schwab bank has been a good bank to us. To begin with, their customer service is top notch. I have accounts with multiple bank but Schwab's phone support has ALWAYS fixed my issues in a quick and professional manner. We have had two or three minor issues with checks not coming in on time or other account issues and they have always understood and came up with a solution to get us through the situation. There was one time where an app was causing our login to be locked out and even though they did not have any answers as to why the customer service rep stayed on the phone with us until he was able to reach their technical department to find out what was going on. He then was able to explain everything to us and give us a period on when the issue would be resolved. Their fees are reasonable and many times where there would have been a fee with another bank such as using other ATMs or doing money transfers was free with Schwab. Overall, I am very satisfied with them as my bank.
