Overall I really like Northwest bank. They have a friendly staff and I never spend much time inside the bank doing any transaction. The only account that I use is a checking account. I prefer a checking account because it is easier with withdraw my money. I use a debit card and have my money whenever I want it. Their online banking is the best feature they have though. It is very secure, and it has many features. You can check all of your account just like at the actual bank, and also see all of your transaction history which I really like. The other day I no longer wanted to receive bank statements in the mail, so I went online and requested them to be canceled. It is very efficient and useful.
After 8 years I am closing my business, checking and saving account, I was able to build equity for over a millón dollars in real state, however I wasn’t elegible for a car loan, I was not good enough to access to an small credit or refinanced my student loans with this Bank. I will be looking for a better bank right now.
