Great Banking Experience

Posted by: MaryKay5 | Feb 11, 2013

I had a great experience with Investar Bank, opening a checking account with a .60% interest rate and also with a 6 month CD.  Very friendly and helpful staff.

As of 2/10/13 they are offering 24 month CD @ 1.10%, 18 month CD @ .80% and a 3,6,9, or 12 month CD @ .75%

Some of the best rates in the Baton Rouge area.

Rude Customer Service

Posted by: Jking | May 23, 2016

Very rude service. I am a business owner and would never have let that type of rude behavior happen to one of my customers. I would like to leave them a no star review.

Loan Sharks

My husband lost his job in July due to downsizing. After falling behind on our vehicle loan payment by one month, they began calling. They called 4+ times per day and it didn't matter how often you explained the same thing to them (I can't pay until I get paid on XYZ date), they didn't speak to each other. Each time they called (which was 4+ times a day EVERY SINGLE DAY) they didn't make any notes on the account so we had to repeat it all over again.and again.and again. We were able to stay only one note behind until this month. My husband started a new job and getting the first paycheck took three weeks, which put us behind more; the November note was practically due when I was able to pay the October payment. Our note for October was due, and the note for November was due in three days. We explained that we could make a payment on Friday (day before the Nov due date). They pushed and pushed and harassed until we used the rent money to make a payment so they would not come and get the truck. I sent confirmation of the payment and they say now "No, you still have to pay MORE by noon Friday." I was able to make MORE than the October payment today (at 8am), Friday, before the due date and deadline, yet the repo man showed up at my house and woke all FOUR of my sons from their nap with his banging on my door. I explained to him I made the payments before the deadline (noon today) and he made a call and said he would be back on Monday. This is another case of Investar not talking to each other within the organization. I emailed the collections agent I had been working with and he assures me it's taken care of and no one is coming Monday. But why did it get to this point? Because they don't keep notes or speak to each other. My actions haven't changed...I followed through with the promise I made to them about when I would be able to catch up. My November and December payments will be paid now that my husband got a new job... but truthfully I just want to sell the truck and get a whole new truck with a new lender because working with these spiteful, rude, insensitive bank is not worth the worry. When my first husband stopped paying my car note during our divorce he let it fall behind 5 months before I was made aware of it. That credit union didn't fault me, didn't harass me, and I paid them back in full without anyone yelling at me or sending the repo man.
