Best online bank

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.

Citibank, generations of satisfied customers.

I have been banking with Citibank for 10 years now, my parents banked there ever since I can remember. I decided to go with them as an adult with them due to the satisfaction that my parents always expressed. I decided to stay with them due to the exceptional customer service. The representatives at my location know me by name and make me feel more than welcome, I truly feel like a member there. The accounts that I hold have made me great returns on interest and I have never had any issues there at all. I would recommend this bank, and branch to anyone that was interested, without a doubt. For a short time I held a second account at a different bank and it gave me perspective on just how great Citibank treats their members. Citibank offers great accounts for children as well, I currently hold savings accounts for all three of my young children that are building great interest for their future. So not only has Citibank catered to my parents, and now me, they are catering to the third generation in my family. I suspect that will continue on down the line.

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.

The bank is average, I like how I can do everything online, but do not like calling customer service. I think there should be a person answering the phone, to transfer me to the correct dept, instead of trying to navigate the phone menu. I find that annoying, and its not just this bank, but most bigger banks these days. I have checking account and a credit card through them. I think they also offer loans at competitive interest rates compared to the rest of the industry. I have not had a loan through them, but I do check on the rates periodically. If it's convenient I would recommend the bank to others, but I would not go out of my way to use them.
