Less Waiting And Higher Limits For CIBC Agility Savings Account - 12/20/2018

I got the following email: "Change in Terms Notice for Your Agility Savings Account "As of January 24, 2019, the following changes will take effect regarding your ability to make external transfers within CIBC NetBanking: "1. We have reduced the waiting period to 30 days to allow you to use CIBC NetBanking to transfer funds from your CIBC Bank USA account to your account at another financial institution. "2. We have changed the limits for using external transfers in CIBC NetBanking to transfer funds to an account you own at another financial institution. The new limits are $125,000.00 per day and $250,000.00 per month." IIRC, they had a 90 day hold on money once deposited, though I was initially told if I called them they could set external accounts up over the phone before the 90 day period was up and money could sent to the original bank via ACH anyways.

Opened An Account

I had absolutely no problem opening an account. The only slight issue was that the application asks for an issue date for the driver's license which is not on the Michigan driver's license. But this was figured out.

Too Many Restrictions

Posted by: RZ | Jan 12, 2018

I have been with this bank for a couple of years as their rates for savings accounts have been competitive up until recently. What is annoying however is that the promo rates are guaranteed for only 6 months and then revert to a much lower one. In order to maintain the better rate a new account must be opened which is an unnecessary hassle requiring that new external linkages must then be established. Out going ACH transfers are also limited adding further hoops for gaining access to your funds. Now that even the promo rate is not near the leaders I am done with dealing with this banks idiosyncrasies and plan to move on.

This Bank Is Missing Out On Clients.

I have a Canadian account with CIBC and was always very satisfied with their service. So it was exciting to open up a CD in the US with them. We literally tried 6 times to open a joint account and were denied every time. They cannot divulge the reasons but state it is third party identification. What.....! We have many other options without a problem. In the end it turned out a blessing as we found a Bank Live Oak in North Carolina with fantastic service and better interest. Do not waste your time here.

Not Customer Service Driven

Posted by: AvoidCIBC | Oct 30, 2018

I bank all over the USA for the best rates and yields. However, CIBC is my worst experience. Let me tell you why.

1. Trying to establish an external account for payments and transfers has severe limitations. They would not allow me to transfer to another account through the online option, and requested I call customer service. This is one instance they control your money, despite being a liquid SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

2. Closed my account within a month. They dragged their feet for 10 days from initial request to actual close. They would only close my account to the original funding account (which obviously had been closed), and would not transfer to my new account because of (1).

Stay Away Until They Get Their Act Together

Posted by: Jarlath | Sep 14, 2018

I just opened, and closed, a CIBC agility account. I didn't know that they do not allow you to pull money in from an external bank account. You have to wire it over or send them a check. I called customer service question this and they said as they are new to the online banking business, they still are working out the kinks. So, until they do, do not open an online account with them.
