Promo Rate With Closing Fee Not Fair!

Posted by: mashaun46 | Jul 5, 2017

Investor beware! Called customer service because I was interested in their 1.25% interest rate on their Money Market Special 3 accounts. Prior to calling I read their fee schedule included a Closing Fee of $25 if closed within 180 days. I asked customer service:

1. Is their 1.25% interest rate a promo rate? Answer: yes, which means they intend to drop their interest rate.
2. Does the $25 Closing Fee if closed within 180 days applies to this account? Answer: yes, which means that when they drop their interest rate, you're either stuck with their lower interest rate for the balance of 180 days, or forfeit $25 to close your account!

I don't consider that Fair Banking! Looking elsewhere.

Problems Funding Account

Posted by: kingpain | Jun 10, 2016

I don't usually review but I did have a strange experience with opening up an on-line money market account.

I opened it on-line and the next day linked it online to an account at another bank so I could fund this new account. It then took three business days before the trial test amounts appeared in the EBSB account so that I could link them. Once they appeared, I transferred the funds to the EBSB account. Five days later the funds came back. I called my bank and they said the EBSB account had been closed.

I called EBSB and it said that I hadn't funded my account quickly enough. I told it that I couldn't see how it was possible to fund it any more quickly than I had online.

Over the years I've had online accounts at several different banks and can't recall ever having this problem with another one.
