Also good to know that the bank does not charge for incoming wire deposits and accrued interest is not forfeited if withdrawals are made prior to the posting date.

Excellent Banking Experience

Posted by: filtar | Feb 1, 2019

I have used numerous banks in the past, both internet and bricks & mortar. Northpointe has renewed my faith in customer service. They are so easy to do business with. Everyone I have been associated with there have been above & beyond in professional customer service. I am so thankful that there is still a bricks & mortar bank that offers competitive rates and outstanding customer service. Keep up the excellent performance.

Opening the Ultimate Money Market Account was easy.

Setting up the bill pay was swift.

Interest rate is relatively high.

The ACH fund transfer speed between banks originating with Northpointe is slow – three days when many banks routinely carry it out in one day.

Customer Service is poor – once logged-in it’s impossible to find a method to contact it. On the bank’s home page there’s a ‘contact your expert’ link – used it to send an email which was never acknowledged or answered.

For A Bank, It's Hard To Get Them Money

Posted by: bumrocky | Nov 27, 2018

I opened an account when their interest rate was 1.50%. I quickly found out it was difficult to get them the money. You have to "push" the money to the account from your other bank. They will not do an ACH between accounts. The browser interface was old, lacking features and didn't show much information. Their mobile offering was the same as my credit union, just rebadged, so I was used to working with it. The mobile app was pretty decent, and made it easy to deposit checks electronically. The biggest issue is when rates go up, your account is locked in. I closed the account when it got to 1.85% and my account was still stuck at 1.50%. I won't be coming back. There are easier/better banks to deal with.

Account Opening Process Is ARCHAIC!

Posted by: pwj7050 | May 16, 2018

I opened the 2.05% APY Ultimate Savings account yesterday at which time the maximum initial funding limit via an ACH pull into Northpointe is $1,000 I believe. I assumed that once the account was opened I could pull additional funds into the account by setting up the funding account as an "external account" with Northpointe.

Well, you know what happens when you assume! Northpointe does not provide that functionality. The only options are sending in a check, wire the money to Northpointe or ACH the money from the funding account. I bank with Wells Fargo and like all other banks I can think of they have very LOW $ limits on what they allow their customers to ACH OUT of their accounts.

The bottom line is I just closed the Northpointe account the day after I opened it because of their antiquated policies.

Since the 2.05% rate is only available on balances over $25k and they restrict the opening deposit that they do fund via ACH, the customer is forced to either fund by check or wire transfer. An ACH push out of Wells is not an option due to Wells' low $ limits.
