Business Account: Up To $2,000 For Up To $200K For 60 Days - 8/18/2020

The main take away hear is that this is about the only bank looking for new money. I received this in a mailing: My quick read of the requirements is up to $2,000 for up to $200,000 of new money in a new business checking account for 60 days. Bonus paid 90 to 120 days (depending on timing) after the 60 days. Account must be active until bonus is paid. Unclear of the definition of "active account". Don't think account can be opened online. Only by talking to a "Business Specialist"..

Citibank Unresponsive - 4/13/2020

Citibank was promoting their Priority Accounts and a $700 bonus for depositing $50K within 30 days of opening. Applied on-line and 1 week later received 1 letter that checking account was opened. For the next 3 weeks was told by their customer service that welcome package, debit card, PIN, and savings account number were "in the mail". Never received any of it despite many calls to them. Not even instructions on how to fund the account(s). After 4 weeks, sent them a letter telling them to close accounts (if they were even opened). Will never put any of my money in "Citi" would probably not even be able to get it out. They lie and have no idea what they are doing. Even had their customer service hang up on me when asking about my supposed accounts. Telling anyone I know, not to deal with them. THE WORST!

Banking with Citi as a student was simple

Posted by: |

I banked with Citibank while I was a foreign student in New York City. I used the account to receive money from my parents who were not in the US. Citibank charged reasonable exchange rate and wire transfer fees. As a student, they allowed me to open a checking/ savings account with no minimum account balance required. They also provided me with free check books that really came in handy. After I graduated, I used Citibank to send money back to my Citibank account based in my home country to pay back a loan. Citibank never revoked my student status so I never felt the pressure to maintain a high account balance. When I did transfer funds internationally, I simply walked into a nearby Citibank branch and was always greeted by friendly bank employees. I have always had a good experience with Citibank.

Citi Bank W9 Form Submitting Process

Posted by: |

This is the Citi specialty - form W9.
I don't remember W9 form for a requirement from any other banks or unions so far.
The process of submitting the form is taking already around four weeks. Mailed with a welcome kit envelope and faxed to a provided number. Checked a status - not on file. Mailed again to another provided address and faxed to another number. Checked the status - not on file. Called to local office numerous times - busy signal and instantaneous route to a call center. The same result if you choose a different language. I will drive to their local office. My hope is - they will allow to fill W9 form in the office. The bank immediately started withdraw Federal tax as it seen on my first statement from the Citi bank. I will update my review next week after my visit to their local branch.
I drove today to a local office. It took less than 5 minutes to fill out a new W9 form. Nice, efficient and helpful representatives in the local office.

Beware Transfer Limits On Savings Accounts

Opened Accelerate Savings account to take advantage of better rate. Citi doesn't make you aware of a policy that is not readily apparent that limits your transfers out of the account to $10,000 on a daily basis and $15,000 in a 30 day period. If your going to fund this account with a small savings balance that is no problem...but if you want to fund a larger amount your money is tied up and it may take a very long time to reduce your balance (short of closing the entire account and waiting for your money). Also, signing up was more laborious than any other bank I've ever dealt with. Make sure to unfreeze your credit report if it's frozen or you will get immediate denial of an account.
Lastly, the customer service is in generally slow via phone or chat.
Bottom line, strongly discourage you from opening an account with Citi for anything but their credit cards...I have their Costco Visa card and am OK with their web site for that card. Better to look at Marcus, Synchrony, or Ally

Locked My Account!!!

Posted by: |

They locked my account for "review". Never specified what the review! I've spent over 10 hours on the phone for the past 3 days trying to unlock my account! I would NOT do business with Citi. As soon as my account is unlocked, I will be moving my money OUT! I've already filed a complaint with the CFPB. Stay away from Citi!!! Horrible customer experience!!!
