Highest interest rate will drop to 2.02%  (down from 2.25%)

Balance cap to earn the highest rate will drop to $10,000 (down from $20,000)

Great Service! Rate Changes On Mar 17, 2011

Posted by: TwinsDad | Feb 12, 2011

I've banked with them for 6 months - great rates and service. Received a notice yesterday announcing the following changes effective Mar 17, 2011:

- Rate will be increased from 3.51% APY to 4.01% APY

- High interest rate balance cap will be lowered from 50k to 30k and rate above the cap will decrease from 1.01% APY TO 0.5% APY

- Velocity Saver a new Savings Product that will earn 1.5% APY upto 20K when the Checking qualifications are met.

Overall still a better rate and service with the above changes.

Lowered Rates Twice In Eight Months

Posted by: twinbee | Feb 21, 2012

Just got a letter in the mail saying that starting March 22, 2011 the max deposit for interest in velocity checking will be lowered from $30k to $20k, and the rate will be lowered from 3.01% APY to 2.25% APY.

Given the general uncertainty in the banking sector right now due to the debt crisis in Europe, it is understandable that they might change their rate. However I got hit with a rate change a few days after I opened my account, so I am considering other banks that offer a better deal on rewards checking.

Other than this flux, the customer service has been great.

Big Fees For Everything; Sketchy Customer Service

Posted by: maddoxlc | May 29, 2016

Have had to wait a lot to speak to someone at the bank. Big fees to withdraw a CD, either to do an electronic transfer or get a cashier's check. Periodic issues to access online account (system not available, etc.). Not worth the marginal rates.
