Merrick Bank is headquartered in South Jordan and is the 13th largest bank in the state of Utah. It is also the 275th largest bank in the nation. It was established in 1997 and as of June of 2022, it had grown to 471 employees at 1 location. Merrick Bank's CD rates are 5X the national average, and it has an A health rating.
Just opened a CD online. Had a glitch and a wonderful rep helped me on the phone. They answer right away with a person!!! How many banks do that?
The rep was exceptional. Pleasant, courteous, patient, extremely competent. Great customer service.
The application was quick and simple. CD funded immediately by ACH. No extensive data gathering or hassles, just enough to prove you are who you are. The CD rate was close to the tops in the country.
No paper mailings of your account info. Just online and you print them out. Maybe you can get paper sent if you want. Not sure.
I highly recommend this bank.
I've been moving money around to a lot of different banks the past several years, chasing rates because of the low rate environment we have been in. This bank is the best one I have found out of about a dozen I have used. Their process to open a CD is simple and 100% online, the website is very easy to use and navigate. When I do have a question, their online support via secure messaging has been perfect. Their representatives have all been very professional and super helpful. Outstanding experience !
The good part is their 12month CD rate and their grade A safety rating. The bad part is the "online" application process which is really part online and part on the phone and will take a lot of your patience to get through the process and about 8 business days to get your account open and funded. Their headquarters is in Utah but you are not allowed to talk to anyone there. They have a call center in Missouri and the claim to be open till 6PM but they can't access any information from Utah after 5PM. You will need to unfreeze one of the credit bureau reports but they won't tell you this upfront--they will contact you later after the online application doesn't go through. After they get your credit report, they will contact you and ask you to call them so they can ask you "extra questions". After you jump through that hoop, they will then send the two microdeposits to the account you want to link to the Merrick CD account in order to fund the account. And on it goes for days and days on end, but if you want a good CD rate in a bank with a good safety rating, then this is the price you are going to pay. Good luck, John
New Accounts are funded via ACH from your EXTERNAL BANK account using the app PLAID. Merrick should state this BEFORE you start the process. Why is this important? Because PLAID requires you provide them with your Login ID + Password at your EXTERNAL BANK account. This should concern every potential new customer because:
In July 2020 a second class-action lawsuit was filed against Plaid Inc. and it’s new parent company VISA.
The first lawsuit was filed in early May 2020. Both legal actions allege that the company used its extensive access to improperly collect private user banking data. Plaid, Inc. was accused of collecting and then selling customer's private banking data.
Why on Earth would you give an app your personal security details when they are neither the funding bank nor the bank receiving the deposit?
