$600 Bonus Momentum Checking - 7/20/2023

I usually throw out those Valpak advertising coupons without even opening the envelope. This time I rummaged through them and found an offer code from Fifth Third for this deal. No direct deposit required. You need to deposit $15K within 45 days of opening the account and leave it there for 90 days. The verbiage is unclear whether it's 90 days from account opening or 90 days from the date of your deposit. CSR claims it's the latter. Momentum Checking has no minimum balance and no monthly maintenance fees. You can apply for this account and input the offer code online.  No need to visit a branch. Fifth Third Bank has two branches within 5 miles of where I live. I'm pretty sure the bank is targeting zip codes with good potential for attracting clients.

5/3 Bank

Fifth-Third Bank is a great bank. I have a checking and savings account with them. I have never had any issues with them. Deposits go through in a regular amount of time. I like the different options for my checking account. The people are nice and answer questions thoroughly and efficiently. I wish they had slightly better rates but they are competitive so I don't see any need to move.

Opened a promotional CD last year with a very competitve rate (2.5% - 9 months). It is now coming due. I am not renewing and have to go into a branch to transfer the proceeds to my checking account. Chances are I will be closing that as well. Definitely not making my life a 5/3 better.

Fifth Third Fails In Its Most Basic Duty: Protect Account & Reimburse When Funds Are Stolen

I am sharing this review, ironically, during the celebration of National Consumer Protection Week. My business has been a customer of the downtown Fifth Third Bank branch for approximately 20 years. Fifth Third failed to protect our funds from an account takeover via a "check-washing" theft (involving the changing of payor's name, and obvious forgery of signatures). Unfortunately, despite immediately reporting the theft, it happened more than once (June, 2023, and December 2023). Fifth third failed in its most basic duty --- keep the funds safe and secure. To add insult to injury, Fifth Third then denied our requests for reimbursement. The runaround and bureaucracy at Fifth Third is atrocious. Fifth Third failed in its legal duty to secure and protect the consumer, and failed to reimburse. Upon further research, it appears that this is a pattern and practice by big banks across the country. See recent lawsuit by NY AG against Citibank. See Senator Sherrod Brown's Senate Committee on Banking. We have asked for copies of all documents supporting their denial of our request for reimbursement. Fifth Third so far is silent. We have filed complaints with the regulatory agencies, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the Office of Comptroller of Currency. We have also filed with the BBB. I encourage similarly situated consumers at Fifth Third to do the same. #53Better. Here is our story.
