they work with you

Posted by: feelingold | Jan 2, 2017

I opened my Citibank checking account when I was 20 years old. I chose it because the branch was directly across the street from my law school. They were so friendly and helpful and explained everything to me (and there was lots to explain to my 20 year old self). I am now 41 and still have the same checking account. Over the years, Citi has changed their policies and tried to assess fees just for keeping your money with them. Every time I went into a branch to complain, they reassured me that my account was grandfathered in and no fees would apply. One time, they showed me how to set up bill pay to avoid fees. And now I use PopMoney all the time. It's so easy to send money to people. I like Citi a lot.

Easy bank to use

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.

Good Solid Bank

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.

Bank that meets all my expectations

This bank is very fast and useful for me since I can carry out all my needs at any time and in any place without many impediments, I can check my account and make transfers at any time of my day to day, since the accessibility is very easy And fast, do not ask for many security requirements and somehow I like this because I am always very rushed in my affairs and I need to develop quickly when entering this bank and use their services, I can also pay for the services I use In my house and a % of very good savings for the client. I really do not demand much more from this bank, it is practically perfect for me, it adheres perfectly to all the steps I want to take when I enter your website. It's a very different bank and very useable.
