Great Rate But Not So Smooth Setup & Info

Posted by: |

Having dealt with banks & credit unions around the world for 40+ years, I'm accustomed to bankers not having all the facts about new offerings and the website having bugs. I experienced both with Elements Financial. After 4 frustrating phone calls to Elements, I got a callback from Paulette Stull who politely and promptly resolved all my issues and corrected all prior misinformation about their Helium Savings and High Interest checking. Without Paulette, I would have rated my overall experience as 1 star. BOTTOM LINE: There is no cap (maximum deposit limit) on the 3.25% APY savings account. There is a $20,000 cap on the 4% High Interest checking AND you must use debit card 15 times per month.

HELIUM SAVINGS ACCOUNT - What A Disorganized Bank

Posted by: |

Tried opening Helium Savings Account.
Received email asking for more info (Driver's license + Rent or Utility bill).
The email was a "noreply" address and the tab at the bottom of the page takes you to a START APPLICATION page.
Honestly, these people are screwed-up.
I asked if their Chief Financial Officer is aware that new applicants are receiving a bogus page link after going through online account application.
Seriously, I am discovering a lot of banks and credit unions like Elements Financial are poorly run financial organizations. The regulators and Congress need to clean house. Obviously 2008 financial crisis wasn't a wake-up call to anyone in the banking system.
