As a primarily online bank you would expect the online feature to be very strong and they are. I will say however the lack of an accessible physical location is sometimes an inconvenience. The rates have been outstanding for the most part, 0.75% Checking and 1.3% Savings. I have been very happy with the general banking products. I have casually looked at the CD and other products. I may explore those more in the future. The customer service element is sometimes lacking as it can be difficult to reach customer services by phone. This makes the lack of a physical location an even bigger issue. I believe they are a fairly new bank so hopefully in time they will get these issues ironed out. As a whole though I would give the institution as a whole high marks. I intend to stay with them in the future. I also have recommended them to friends who have opened accounts and have been very happy. I am happy to report that BankPurely does not charge me any fees unless I break their Terms of Service and even then they are very reluctant to charge me any kind of additional fee. BankPurely also offers an IRA program to help me save for retirement. Their interest rates are very competitive with major institutions and while they are certainly not the highest on the market, they are a good value and offer a chance to further diversify your retirement funds. I would recommend BankPurely to anyone who is tired of the major institutions and wants to experience a smaller, more personable online only banking organization.
No silly fees ..fast direct deposits and excellent app ...Only downside is the ATM fees when you are traveling international..The app is one of the best designed app I have ever seen ...Much better than the one in bank of america ...Also it provides more insights into all the transactions ...I wish they had the option of depositing cash ..They are working on it but its still not available ..I also love the mobile deposit options on their app ...
When I first heard about chime I was really excited about them. I love online-only banks because they are really convenient for my mobile life. When I signed up using the app, I immediately had a huge issue. It wouldn't let me attach my card to the account. I tried to contact support, as I was unable to utilize my account, and they didn't reply to me for over two weeks. When they finally did reply they apologized but it left a bitter taste in my mouth and I decided to no longer use them.
