When most people think of Nationwide, they think of insurance. However, since Nationwide’s beginnings as an auto insurance company in Ohio, Nationwide has grown to be one of the largest insurance companies in the U.S. In addition to offering insurance, Nationwide offers a variety of other financial products and services. Some of these products and services include those offered by Nationwide Bank, which is independently registered with the FDIC and offers insurance, investment, and banking products and services.

On its personal banking side, Nationwide Bank offers checking, savings, Money Market, Certificate of Deposit (CD), and IRA accounts along with mortgage and auto loans, and various credit cards. A few checking accounts are available and come with free debit cards and a limited number of free non-Nationwide Bank ATM transactions. The interest checking account offers higher rates of interest for higher account balance thresholds and requires an average daily balance in order to avoid monthly service fees. A basic checking account is also available and designed for customers with lower balances. Nationwide’s online savings account provides a simple way to save and has a minimum daily balance requirement in order to avoid a monthly fee. Money Market accounts are available and typically offer higher interest rates than the bank’s online savings account. The Nationwide website also provides a helpful chart that compares this Money Market account to its other offerings to help customers decide which account to choose. CD and IRA accounts have no monthly maintenance fees and are offered in term lengths ranging from 3 to 60 months. DepositAccounts.com has featured Nationwide’s Money Market and CD accounts repeatedly in the past for their competitive rate offerings.

Nationwide Bank online banking provides a password protected banking system through which account holders can transfer funds between accounts, pay bills, view and print cleared check images, and set up direct deposit. Mobile banking apps released by the bank also make it easy to deposit checks remotely and pay your bills from anywhere on your smartphone or tablet device.

Nationwide Bank was originally established in 1998 as the Nationwide Trust Company, and began offering products to the public in 2007. Nationwide Corporation started out as an auto insurer for farmer in Ohio in the 1920’s before growing into the large company that it is today. The bank is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and serves its customers predominantly through its online banking system, but also through a single physical branch as well.

Nationwide is great for checking accounts

Posted by: Cartinduop | 8 hours ago

A bit over two years ago I opened a checking account with Nationwide and it has been a very pleasant experience. When I talked with the customer service person, they were very courteous and helpful. She explained to me all of the benefits and broke down how my experience banking with them would be. I was very pleased by their professionalism and down-to-earth approach. She listened to me and my needs and guided me through their policies and showed me how they met my needs. My checking account has 0 fees, 0 transactions fees, and comes with a 0.25% cash back reward on all my purchases. They have made my banking experience a very pleasurable one and I highly recommend them. Overall I think this bank can be great for anyone who wants a simple checking account and does not want to deal with any problems. I have not had any issues with them in the two years I have been with them.

Nationwide Bank - Excellent Customer Service

Nationwide has very responsive customer service agents when I had a problem with my account. I had made an error in setting up my preferences and automatic payments in my Nationwide account. A quick phone call to customer service was all it took to get everything straightened out. I really appreciated not having to wait on hold for more than one minute! Beyond that, I like the online features of their online banking platform. It's easy to navigate and find what I want. Overall, a nice bank.

Customer Serivce That Doesn't Listen to the Customer

I have banked with Nationwide Bank for a number of years, and recently, due to a death in the family, was spurred to open a new account with Nationwide in order to establish an account associated with the formation of a trust. In doing so, I had the legal paperwork for the trust with me to provide to the branch manager as we worked through the process of creating the checking account. He reviewed the documentation, and I explained to him that this checking account was meant solely as a placeholder with no current intent to keep any significant amount of money in it. I explained that this account was meant to fund any future purchases of items that would be added to the trust, so a majority of the time it would sit with as little as $25 in it. With this information, I thought he understood the requirements I needed with this trust account, yet after the paperwork was signed, the trust account created, and an initial $25 deposited, I found that a month later I had been charged a $2 fee. I contacted Nationwide Bank to inquire why and was told that I was not meeting the minimum balance requirement, something that was not supposed to exist, and that the only way I could stop incurring a penalty every month would be to sign up for their electronic bank statements. Apparently when the branch manager was incorrectly setting up my account, he set it up so that the account was separate somehow to the point of receiving a second printed statement in the mail each month and as an account with a minimum balance requirement. He did not warn me of any of this, and the woman I contacted seemed unapologetic by claiming that the branch manager would have surely explained this to me. Needless to say, I was not happy, voiced my opposition, and was able to at least receive my money back from the penalty, but was forced to sign up for the estatements in order to prevent it from happening again. I am very surprised at how bad the customer service was considering my past history with the bank.

This was an awful experience

This was an awful experience. Avoid these people at all costs After opening the account, They stated they could not verifiy my information. The account was frozen and I had no access to my funds. I engaged in protracted efforts to solve this situation, including sending official court documents verifying my address. The intractable attitude I encountered led to hiring an attorney to sue this bank to close the account and release these funds back to me. Avoid these people at all costs. Remember to old adage if it starts bad it will continue to be bad.
