Opened a 2-year CD today and was easy to do. Had no problem with electronic pull from my funding bank account. There was place on form to add POD also, which a lot of online forms don't offer. Only hitch was where it asked how the funding bank was styled I put the "&" sign between my name and my husband's. Application said that wasn't right, then I entered both names with no comma or "&" between them and it went through. Called to make sure they got app and within 10 minutes of turning it in it was approved. Courtney at bank was very knowledgeable .
I was pleased with the CD account opening process. Pretty straight forward and Cortney was a great help.
Like a few other banks and credit unions, they only credit interest quarterly.
No external accounts are linked, even the account you funded the CD with. Guess you must have to have a savings account to link external accounts.
I have had an account with KS State Bank since roughly 2006. I will be closing it as soon as I get direct deposit established at another bank.
I purchased fuel on 11/12/19, and on 11/14/19 I had to use my bank for another transaction which I knew would cause an overdraft fee. The overdraft fee would have been less then the late fee, and I had a direct deposit coming in on the next day anyway.
When I checked my account the next day, they had reordered my transactions and put the 11/12 fuel purchase AFTER the 11/14 transaction causing me to incur 2 overdraft fees instead of one. I contacted them thinking it was a mistake and they said it was normal, fine, and not an issue. They refused to refund it because they based the transaction off of when the payment cleared, not when it was made, and then prioritized the larger of the 2 transactions which maximized the fees they could charge me. Their refusal to reverse the fee is why I am leaving, as I consider it a poor practice.
They get 2 starts because what they did is not inconsistent with the fine print, nor is it illegal. It is just a bad practice that takes more money from people who are already on a right budget.
Applied for a CD on their website. Very lengthy application process to open a Deposit account. And they do a credit pull to open a CD account? Who does that? I am making a deposit, not asking for credit. At end of application form it says PENDING. I received NO email about the application or anything to say thank you for your business. The following day I see that my funding bank account has been debited, but still nothing from KS Bank. When I contact CS I am told "don't know why you didn't get a confirmation email" but we will send you a letter via snail mail. You mean I can apply online but KS Bank can't send me an online reply? Also, ACH funds are transferred electronically, so once they leave my bank they are transferred almost immediately, but CS rep says it will take 3-5 days for them to get my deposit! BS.... 6 days later I have heard NOTHING from the bank. I cannot even set up an online banking account without info from them about the CD. TERRIBLE customer service! I was going to purchase some large CDs from them but not anymore. I WOULD AVOID THIS BANK.
It appears that this bank declined my CD application because of my credit report in that they assumed I was just trying to get their 1.8% CD interest rates and would get NO additional business from me. They are appearing to be offering the rate to just be TROLLING for additional business. I have PERFECT credit and am loaning them the $'s not them to me so what does a credit report have to do with a CD application???
After applying for KS StateBank's 1 year CD, I received a call from them wanting me to unfreeze my credit report, answer the three questions provided by Experian and then refreeze it.
I decided to park my CD elsewhere for the following reasons:
1) I was allowing them the use of my money. I was not taking out a loan or asking for credit.
2) The hard pull would have dinged my credit score.
3) They were attempting to get me to spend money, while I was looking for an institution to save money. I would have lost the ten dollars that it costs to unfreeze and refreeze the credit report.
4) There was no reason to have the answers to my personal questions affiliated with my credit report. Having had access to my credit report is more than enough for the rest of the banking world to tell them of my credit worthiness. It should have been enough for KS State Bank.
