I have went through many different online only banks. I had some who I opened accounts with and then once I had money deposited into them they closed my account and took my money. Citibank is totally different from these companies, they have been quick to get me a debit card and check book. Their customer service is outstanding.
I have a savings account with Citibank. I have not been with them very long but I switched to them from Wells Fargo. Citibank customer service is better when it comes to helping customers over the phone than Wells Fargo was for me. They shipped me a new card out much faster when I lost mine last time. Also their mobile banking is easy to use and has more options of things to view on there without using the full site. I like that on Citi the amount you have to keep in your savings is low because sometimes I need to take money out but do not want to close my account. I plan on adding more services to my account since they seem to fit my needs financially.
I initially opened an account with Citi Bank because a family member recommended it to me. I liked that there was no minimum deposit to open my account. In general I don't have any major complaints about the bank. The website is easy to use and I can easily move money between my accounts, which was a big selling point to me. However I can't say there's anything especially wonderful about them that stands out from other banks. It's a basic bank with solid account services and good customer service. I haven't had any problems but I haven't had anything amazing happen either. In general however I am happy with the service. The website functions well and I am able to talk to someone when I have a problem and need to call in, which has only happened a few times. I think the fees and whatnot are reasonable, everything is market standard. I would recommend.
This is the best bank I've ever worked with hands down. Other banks I've dealt with have been beyond terrible (looking at you Wells Fargo). The customer service is always trying to help me and the bank gives me the tools to make my life easier with their website and mobile app. I couldn't recommend this bank enough. Opening a savings and checking account has never been so easy and painless. Depositing money and withdrawing is also a very easy and fast process.
