This bank was a great bank to work with. I had a business financial account with them and some other banks some years back and I never had a problem getting my transactions in and out with them. The process was always very simple. It was nothing complicated at all about getting money into my account or sending money out of my account for my business. This bank helped me to be able to other methods of payment besides cash within my business. This bank was very helpful to me in getting my business up and running and I will forever be thankful. I was able to take payments from people anywhere in the country and some places outside of the US as well. Im very thankful for the services of Meta Bank during my first few years of life in the business world.
I have had a few different savings accounts but this is one of the best out there. It is easy to set up. I contacted them and within minutes I was ready to go. I have been saving a small portion of my paycheck there every week and it is a great service. I did contact them to ask some basic questions and the wait times were not that bad, just a fraction of a few minutes. They resolved my questions fast and I am impressed with how thorough and positive the service has been. If you are in the need of a bank you can use online, this is the one for you and I would recommend it.
I've banked online with Metabank for nearly a decade. I currently have several checking and savings accounts with them. I've always been very pleased because I travel abroad alot and I feel like my money is not only secure but also easy to access. Before each trip, all I have to do is call them and notify them about my travel plans and my money is accessible while abroad. I've spent about 3 years over the past decade abroad and being without funds is very scary. I've always been able to easily deposit money electronically via ACH, bank, and other online transfers (like Paypal, Amazon, Skrill etc.) and access the money via my debit cards. I also recently got a new international card which is backed my Metabank and it allows me to easily withdraw funds via an ATM while abroad which is not something I was always able to do previously in some countries. I feel like the fees are a bit excessive but reliability and access to my money is the most important thing so I don't mind paying. Plus, on my main checking account, I just pay a flat $5 monthly fee so that's acceptable to me.
I have used many different types of banks because well sometimes they all do not meet my needs and sometimes i must switch. But this one i am talking about today is Metabank. Which is a online only bank i signed up and got started rather quickly. So the process of starting up was rather fast compared to a normal bank which can take some time to actually get started and is not for everyone. Sometimes we want convenience. Which this is and i also called them with a low wait time to ask some questions which was nice i could get answers rather fast with almost no wait time which is great because like me everyone has questions overall the experience was positive for me.
Metabank was the bank used for direct deposit for my employer so I ended up with a card and account with them. I have been happy with the services and continue to use the account even thought I now have a different job. Customer service has always been helpful if I have called. I am able to withdraw money with no fee. I am able to keep my temporary card in case I were to loose the other card. This account meets my needs even though there is no local branch to visit.
I would recommend Metabank to others and I plan to keep this account as deposits are always timely and as expected and I am confident I can reach customer service when needed.
SUNNY & NICOLE IN THE ACCOUNT SPECIALIST DEPT ARE TRASH. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. NO PROFESSIONALISM. KEPT HANGING UP IN MY FACE ALL BECAUSE THEY DIDNT WANT TO PUT IN WORK WITH ASSISTING ME. ENTIRE CUSTOMER SERVICE STAFF IS TRASH. THEY DONT ACCURATELY NOTATE THE ACCT & THEY LIE JUST TO GET YOU OFF THE PHONE. WORST BANK. WORST SERVICE EVEN DOWN TO THE “SUPERVISOR” BY THE NAME OF RENE. IVE BEEN TRYING TO GET MY MONEY SENT TO ME FOR A WEEK NOW & THEYRE JUST HOLDING ONTO MY CHECK. EVERY DAY I HAVE CALLED ITS ALWAYS SOMETHING DIFFEFENT. THESE PEOPLE ARE TRASH. WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE OF A BANK TO ANYONE
I ALSO SEE THAT I HAVE THE MOST RECENT COMMENT AND YET ITS POSTED AT THE BOTTOM. SO IVE COME TO CONCLUSION THE ENTIRE BANK & ALL WHO WORKS FOR IT IS COMPLETE TRASH. ALL THOSE POSITIVE ADJECTIVES THAT THEY HIGHLIGHT OF THEMSELVES ARE COMPLETE LIES!!! THIS BANK IS DEFINITELY THE OPPOSITE OF AMAZING!
Save yourself the headache!
