My Online Experience.

Posted by: MajorGree | Jan 28, 2018

I have banked with mybankingdirect for a few years now. The website is very user friendly and the interest return of above one percent is awesome. I haven't had a problem in the past and no problems. I like how there are no monthly fees and no minimum balance. I have set up a recurring deposit from each of my paychecks so I forgot what I have in my savings account. I can go in and check what I am making per month and yearly and see that my money is safe and making more money. A little, but I am making money. I would recommend this bank for anyone that would like a nice easy online bank to store money.

If you're looking for a bank to open a CD, this is the one!

Posted by: Onablenc | Apr 12, 2018

I inherited some money from my father once he passed away and needed a bank I could trust to open a CD account. After finding this bank, I knew I had found the right one. They have a deal where if you open a CD with just $500.00 for 24 months, the APY is only 2.25%, which is the lowest I've seen around! They are very friendly, and always answer my questions promptly and respectfully. I'm always answered within one phone call, I've never been transferred. The employee I'm put through to always provides excellent customer service. If you have a large sum of money and need to open a CD, look no further.

Good Rates, Poor Service

Posted by: Adindsen | Jan 27, 2018

We previously used mybabkingdirect when we lived in New York City for the first few months we were there. The rates on the CDs were very good at the time and so we thought it would be a good thing to try. We used a 12 month CD and upon completion of that time, we had an incredibly difficult time getting our money back and the rates they had quoted us (and were on our contract) were not the ones that had compounded. It took multiple conversations with customer service agents to get it squared away and it was definitely not worth our time and effort. Eventually they made it right, but it took quite a long time and was not worth it to us when the rates were not drastically different than competitors.

Worst Service Ever

Posted by: fioriana | Mar 15, 2018

i had almost 200,000.dollars in this bank and it took me over a month to get it transferred to another bank

I am stll trying to get the last 50,000 out
they have tried all kinds of postponements and have cancelled my transactions - told me it was above the allowed amount (sometimes) cancelled the transfer because i didnt answer their phone call during a work day and they said they call all their customers up when they make a transfer????????
really...i cant believe them- they are robbing me --what if i need the money to pay an urgent bill?????
