M&T Bank is a publicly traded (NYSE: MTB), New York-based bank that offers an array of personal, business, and commercial banking products and services. With over 15,000 employees, and tens of billions of dollars in assets, M&T is one of the largest commercial banks in the United States.

On its personal banking side, M&T Bank offers checking, savings, Money Market, and Certificate of Deposit (CD) accounts, as well as investment guidance, retirement planning, and web trading services. Checking account options are numerous and range from free and basic to premium and interest bearing. The bank’s free and college checking account options are very similar and come with no monthly fees and a check card. The premium checking account offers minimal interest and has a monthly service charge that can be avoided by either keeping a minimum account balance or taking out a mortgage loan with the bank. All of M&T Bank’s checking accounts allow account holders to avoid an insufficient funds charge when the violating purchase is less than $5. A savings account is available with a low yield and a monthly service charge unless certain requirements are met. Two Money Market account options are available: one MMA has no monthly service fee but offers a low interest rate, and the other MMA offers more competitive rates with a monthly service charge. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are available in term lengths ranging from 6 to 60 months.

M&T Bank online banking provides a secure system for account holders to view past transaction history, transfer funds, pay bills, and set account alerts. The M&T website is optimized for mobile banking, and the bank has released a smartphone app to make it easy and convenient to perform the above tasks while on the go.

M&T Bank was originally established in 1856 and is headquartered in Buffalo, New York. The bank is a subsidiary of M&T Bank Corporation, a bank holding company that has grown substantially through numerous acquisitions of financial institutions in the past 25 years. M&T Bank maintains a multitude of branches located throughout the Midwest, Northeast, and parts of south Florida.

My review of M and T Bank and Credit Union

Posted by: |

I recently had a visit to my local M and T branch regarding a car loan and the manager on hand was very helpful, offering to switch my savings account to a more preferably account status that would allow for a lower interest rate, if I wanted to take out a loan. The manager was kind and detailed. I trust M and T Bank and had a great experience.

Unreasonable Fees

M&T Bank was one of the first banks I had a checking/savings account with, and while they are very professional and have a very responsive and efficiente customer support, their products and fees are not up to today's standards. The overdraft fee is quite high compared to other local banks and unions, and their savings account do not yield as much interest as I had hoped. Also, their cellphone app was very outdated and difficult to use, definitely something that I was unhappy with because I definitely missed having the option of seeing my balance, among other things, online. As a first bank for a teenager or young adult who's starting out in the financial world, this isn't that bad of an option, but you should definitely switch to a bank or union with better fees and product options eventually.

M and T Bank

I had had a checking and savings account with them for over 5 years with no issues. All of a sudden I'm getting overdrafts, 1 or 2 a week. I know I'm being careful and watching what I spend and what gets deposited when. $40 overdraft fee, times 2 is ridiculous. So I go to my local branch and speak with them about this issue, they agree to remove the overdraft charges and I contentedly left. It happens again the following week only this time they won't remove the fee and expect me to pay it. Furious I started looking over my bank statement comparing it to the days I did actual transactions and I realized that the dates of my purchases weren't in the right order. If they would have been my direct deposit would have been in and everything would have been covered. Instead of taking out my purchases in order, they arranged them so I would get an overdraft. Going back 3 weeks I see they have been doing this for awhile. I bring this to the bank managers attention and am given a bunch of excuses. I closed my account and haven't been back

Hello,
To whom it concern
If I could give the negative rate, I would. Do not deal with this bank. Ever. They are con artists, scammer,
do not keep promises, etc. Do not want to spent more time to describe whole story. Just ignore this bank, please. Find you business somewhere else.
