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.

Seems Fine To Me

Posted by: 10094DD | Jul 6, 2013

I have been with M&T for 20 years with no problems, and no, I don't keep a lot of money there, yet I have always been treated very well by customer service--in fact, extremely well.  I have no-fee checking (and connected savings), and pay nothing to use their ATM.  There are some fees of course--excess use of ACH transfer fees for example, or the use of another bank's ATM--but I'm not sure if these fees are unreasonable compared to those of many other banks/credit unions.  I guess they have to be compared.  I have managed not to pay a single fee in a decade.  M&T is a 5-star bank in terms of its financial health--in 2008 it was one of the rare banks that was financially sound.  Would you prefer a bank that is going to collapse in bad times?   I think this is a fine institution, although I have never held a mortgage here.    


Why the heck is the online banking/mobile app constantly a problem for me? I am so sick of this and now it's Christmas season and I call the automated system to check my balance before a purchase and it's $400.00 missing from just last night!!!! I don't know if it's hackers or what BECAUSE I CAN'T FRIGGIN ACCESS MY INFORMATION!!! I'm so annoyed and scared what the FUCK!!!

Extremely Poor Customer Service!!

Posted by: POcustomer | Oct 6, 2016

Waiting 3 months to receive $900, two extra payments they took out after the account was closed and payed in full. Several calls made over 3 months and they continue to blame the postal service for being unable to deliver the money they owe me. Just ridiculous and no customer service whatsoever!!
