KeyBank is one of the largest retail banks in the country and offers an array of products on both its deposit and loan sides. It maintains up-to-date web-based and mobile platforms for easy account management, including online banking via an award winning website. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, it services its customers through a very large network of branches and ATMs.

One of KeyBank’s popular depository products is a reward checking account that often offers a cash bonus for new account openings. It also features hundreds of ‘Tiered’ and ‘Jumbo’ CDs and IRA CDs with various terms and requirements. KeyBank’s checking and savings account offerings usually offer lower than average interest rates. The bank also partners with Quicken to offer financial management solutions to both individuals and businesses.

KeyBank customers can earn Relationship Rewards points by opening a new account or performing everyday banking activities such as Bill Pay, automated debits and credits, and debit card purchases. These points can be redeemed through the KeyBank rewards catalog, which features a variety of products and merchandise. KeyBank online banking provides customers with an easy-to-use system for managing their accounts.

KeyBank was originally organized in 1865 as the National Commercial Bank of Albany. It merged with First Trust and Deposit a century later to become First Commercial Bank before finally changing its name to KeyBank in 1979.

KeyBank’s extensive focus on meeting the credit needs of underserved communities has earned it numerous “outstanding” recognitions by the federal government for its performance in this area. It does this by offering nontraditional banking products and services like low fee check cashing, free financial education, checkless checking, and short-term lines of credit.

I'm happy with Key

Posted by: |

I opened up an savings and a checking account with Key bank a few years ago when I moved into the area. There was not wait time and the lady who helped me out was very nice. There's never a long line and the tellers remember who you are and genuinely seem to care. I've had all my questions answered promptly and correctly. I even opened up a separate savings account for kids. Their web site is excellent and I'm able to do whatever I want and not have problems. There are enough locations around my area that there isn't a problem going to the ATM or talking to a person in real life. I've had good luck with their other products, like CDs and loans, and they've been on par with other banks. I've been happy these last few years and I'm hoping that will be the case going forward.

Key Bank Review

I enjoy working with key bank. I like that as long as I keep my account active they waive the monthly maintenance fee. I do however wish that they offered free checks for the account that I have. The mobile site is easy to use to set up online bill pay.

They Are Not Reliable.Bait And Switch

Posted by: |

They make all kinds of excuses not to abide by their ads,so that they do not have to pay opening account bonuses.

Keybank Stole My Money - 0 Stars

KeyBank shut down my account without any warning and transferred my remaining balance "to the state." Customer service's exact explanation was: "If there is no client transaction over a period of time the state requires that funds go to the state. Direct deposit and auto deducts are not client transactions." I had just recently deposited funds into the account, so there is no excuse for this. Lost out on my entire account balance - AVOID THIS BANK
