Web Site Needs Help

Posted by: |

First: their website seems very dated. It could use a complete overhaul. Also, caught an easy misspelling in their home page, which is unusual for a bank.
Second: I had a terrible time working their website AND app to make an ACH transfer. Extremely glitchy and lacking information. I had to call their support and had to wait about 3 hours for their return call. I’ll just chalk that up to the fact they they’re likely inundated with customers right now because of their rate.
Customer support said to use Chrome browser and not Safari - which is an annoyance to have to switch.
Third: as others have stated, they do have a long hold time on transferred funds. But - the interest is acquired while the money is held.
Their rate is great right now, so I’ll give them a try but they really need to come to the 21 century on their web page.
