Limiting Inbound Transfers To $5000 Is Just Bad Policy!

Posted by: |

Why would any bank limit a customer to an inbound transfer of 5,000 per day and 25,000 per month? What a very stupid move. Isn’t the objective of a bank to gather deposits and make it as convenient for a customer as possible in that respect? Now I know you can transfer from another bank without these limitations, but if they are so concerned about security, they should just put a hold on the funds until they clear like every other NORMAL bank does. Good banks are innovative and not limiting... maybe management should listen to their customers for once. Here’s an idea... now that same day ACH is possible, why don’t you implement a feature to transfer to another bank in the same day. There you go!

Just Signed Up

But did not make a transfer yet. Looks to me like they are still honoring the 2.5% rate through Dec 31? Too good to pass up. Anyone know for sure?

Great Rates, Great Service

This bank does a great job of providing really competitive rates on Money Market and CDs (I like that they have bumped up the rate on my money market to keep it near the top of the market). Customer service has been very friendly when I have needed it. Mobile app makes it easy to monitor my accounts. And, I like that they are private/family-owned and operated vs big corporate.
