I opened an account with C&N's NY affiliate (First State Bank) in January 2009. I was originally attracted by the high rewards check rates (3.5% at the time), however the rates have dropped to 2% since then.
I don't live near a branch office, so most of my activity is carried out online. However, when I've needed assistance the staff has been really accomodating.
My one complaint is that C&N is not compatible with Mint.com and based on their responses to my inquiries, they have no plans to change this.
The telephone answering system is hopeless! I spent more than 15 minutes waiting on hold being forced to listen to advertisements and a particularly annoying jingle. I must also mention that I was returning a call from a message left on my home answering machine. It turns out that the bank was calling to report an error they had made on my account. Now I'm even more angry!
