High Interest Checking Gone - 7/15/2021

Paramount Bank Lowers Checking Interest Rate - 4/17/2021

Paramount Bank lowered its checking account rate on April 17, 2021. They had one of the highest interest rates in the country of .85% for all balances. Now the rate is .75% for balances below $100,000 and .10% for accounts with balances above $100,000. The drop from .85% to .10% may come as a shock to many depositors because their monthly statement, which is issued on the 17th of each month, will show the interest rate at the previous higher rate. Depositors may not see the drastic cut to .10% until they look at next month's statement. This is the wording from Paramount's website: The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) and the Rate of the Interest Checking Account is 0.75% as of April 17, 2021 for accounts with balances up to $99,999.99 and 0.10% for accounts with balances over $100,000.00. Rates are subject to change daily and fees may reduce earnings. $100 minimum initial deposit is required to open an account. The account must be funded within 30 days to remain open.

3 Limitations To Be Aware Of

Posted by: |

So far my experience with Paramount has been favorable, but new depositors may not be happy with 3 service limitations:
*ACH withdrawals are limited to $5000.
*They have no "secure messaging". You have to call them or send a regular email.
*A checkbook order is a minimum of $35! But they have no objection if you buy discount checks elsewhere.
Their staff has been friendly and knowledgeable, and they do answer the phone promptly without a lot of menus to go through.

$100K Limit!

Posted by: |

I went to open an account today and was surprised to see the $100K limit for .85% interest. Above $100K its .10 (not clear if thats for the excess or the whole amount).

I didn't see that anywhere on the description here. Did it just change?

Don't Waste Your Time

Seriously, if you need, have to have, an online bank, this is not the one. The rates seem too good to be true, and they are, because you can't get an account with them. The online application process is easy enough, except that they will come back after you've submitted and want a photo of you, photos of recent bills, maybe other things as I have read in reviews. (Oop, we forgot to mention that before you clicked "submit"!). Then they pull the money from you, in my case $10k, and you may or may not hear from them again. They transferred mine from my bank on April 5, 2021. It is now May 13. They claim they have tried multiple times to do the next step they require, send a paper signature card, where your signature in real ink makes everything legal. I have not received anything from them, but then that is the reason I need an online bank; I travel. Today, 39 days later, they are transferring the money back and refusing me. They're not nice about it, the customer service agent, Nicole, has a holier-than-thou attitude and speaks like a parent to a naughty child. All I can say is it's their loss, not mine.

P.S.- June 12, I finally received their "welcome packet" with aforementioned signature card. The envelope was scribbled all over with the address hand copied incorrectly. Looks like someone's child came to work that day and tried to "help". Or maybe these folks are just that incompetent.
