Flagstar Bank is the banking subsidiary of Flagstar Bancorp, Inc., a publicly traded bank holding company (NASDAQ: FBC) that is a national leader in wholesale mortgage lending. The commercial bank offers deposit accounts, consumer loans and credit cards to individuals, as well as cash management services to businesses.

As far as deposit accounts, the bank offers checking, savings, and Money Market accounts, as well as Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and IRA CDs. Checking account options are numerous and include a simple checking account that comes with a Visa debit card, a free annual investment review, and unlimited check writing. The simple checking account also comes with preferred CD rates when higher balances are maintained. The bank has University of Michigan-themed checking accounts as well as other interest bearing checking accounts that come with the cost of monthly service fees, which can be avoided by meeting certain requirements. All of the savings accounts offerings come with free ATM transactions at qualifying machines, online and telephone banking, and a free spending review service. A simple savings account is available and comes with a monthly service fee that can be waived by opening a checking account. Money Market accounts at the bank offer higher interest rates for higher balances and come with a Visa debit card. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) have a low minimum balance to open and are available in term lengths ranging from 30 days to 120 months.

Flagstar is also part of the CDARS network, giving large deposit investors a convenient way to find the best CDs for their funds while maintaining FDIC insurance coverage. The bank also offers government banking solutions that help government entities manage public sector funds.

Flagstar Bank online banking provides a web-based platform for account management tasks like Bill Pay, budget tracking, reward account management, and fund transfers. The system also provides Intuit financial management tools to help track expenses and plan out personal finances. Mobile banking is also available for customers to use through smartphone and tablet apps.

Flagstar Bank was originally established in 1987 as the First Security Savings Bank. In 1996 it transitioned to its current name, and four years later moved to its current headquarters in Troy, Michigan. Over a hundred branches are operated across the state of Michigan, where Flagstar focuses its business.

Flagstar Bank

Have banked with Flagstar for 25-30 years. Started when the CD rates were high. Then I took some of the townships money there for CD's. I still have one CD there and a checking and savings account. Rates are extremely low now but the service is great. They were wonderful helping with accounts after my mother passed with her IRA and when husband passed and helped me set up an account for the boys to inherit before his death. Though I thought I had another year to do this was so thankful I did it when I did.  One of the most helpful, and friendly banks I have every belonged to. Was shocked to hear all the negative remarks. Maybe it is the city I live in that makes the difference. Not sure why all of the negative remarks but people at Flagstar are always helpful. I rarely go it except to use the ATM for deposits but they still address me by name. AMAZING 

Mortgage Through Flagstar

Posted by: Nanchad | Mar 6, 2012

I refinanced in December, and discovered that my new mortgage was going to be through Flagstar Bank.  When I read the reviews I almost had a heart attack.  I am very involved with my mortgage, have spreadsheets showing my payments, make multiple extra payments throughout the month, etc.  I was in a panic when I read the reviews, and contacted my bank and almost had them cancel the refinance, because there is no way I could do business with a bank that had horrible reviews.  My bank reassured me that a lot of their employees had their mortgage through Flagstar, and they were very happy with them.  They were able to talk me into going through with my refinance.  It has been 3 months now, and I am extremely happy with Flagstar Bank.  The online options that I have to look at my mortgage are the best that I have seen.  It is very easy to make extra payments as often as I want online.  I had a question about my mortgage, and was hesistant to call Flagstar Bank (because of the horrible reviews).  I was at work, and knew that I didn't have 45 minutes to an hour to sit on the phone and wait.  Once again, I was surprised!  I was on hold for less than 2 minutes, and the customer service rep was very nice, knew exactly what he was talking about, and was able to explain things to me.  I immediately chatted my husband and said, "I had a WONDERFUL experience with Flagstar!"  As for right now, I would have to give Flagstar 5 stars, and that is saying something, because 90% of the time I am NEVER satisfied with companies and their customer service.  Way to go Flagstar!

Not The Sharpest, But.. Pretty Sharp!

I've had an online checking and savings account for about six months.  Have had some difficulty understanding the online site, but found calls to customer service answered quickly and accurately.  On a scale of 1 to ten I would give Flagstar a 7+, for sure better than ING (now Capital one 360).

Changed Online Bank Terms Nov 2015

Posted by: gng | Nov 27, 2015

Flagstar Bank changed over to a new Online Banking system this November 2015. I can't log into my Online Account until I agree to the new "Terms". Unfavorable terms, I must say. That not the big problem I have with this bank. Flagstar is making me put in my name, social security number, date of birth, zip code and telephone number. All in one place. I have a big problem with this. First they already have this information for the last 10 years. Second, this is all the information an Identify Thief need to ruin your life.
