Beyond Awesome

A Simple savings account with a good rate. I go to a full service branch bank for my main checking account and link to a bank with a high rate saving account. This bank seems to have a successful loan product, which means they will likely stay top of market with their savings rate to fund that portfolio.
Reasonable transfer limits with 24/7 call center. That is all I need out of a savings bank. Rate, Service, Easy Money Movement. They dont have their mobile app yet, but for those that know to save the url as a widget on their phone, it looks and works just like an app.

It Has Potential

Posted by: |

Jenius has a bare-bones website that feels old and clunky. The sign-up process felt a bit clunky too.

Jenius is SLOW with money in and out.

Jenius does not have a Visa Debit or ATM card.

But... it has a great rate.

If their advertising is to be believed, they will continue to have a good rate.

They are new and they may smooth out over time. This could be a good one.

And Jenius --- Get a Visa Debit or some sort of ATM card!

We shall see.

Frustrating - I Would Avoid

Posted by: |

I opened an account less than three weeks ago. I don't log in regularly, but I wanted to see something this week. After three unsuccessful attempts, I was locked out. No biggie, I must have forgotten my password, so I had the account unlocked and pw reset. Try to log in with new pw, no luck. I know I used the correct one, I had JUST updated it. Run through another lock out, and reset, and the third time I cannot get in.

I spent two calls with customer service, who were pleasant, but ultimately unhelpful. I am moving my money out of this bank as soon as I can login (which I'm told, is a problem they have been having for at least a couple days). An online-only bank needs to have damn near close to 100% uptime, if not 100%. Never had this problem at other banks. Beware!
