People's United Bank

Deposits held and insured by M&T Bank

No bounced check fees!

Posted by: |

I have been with People's for about 5 years or so. There are times, very few though still times, that I have made a mistake on my account. Whether it was forgetting to subtract a withdrawal or a check. Needless to say, I ended up with a negative balance. I do have money direct deposited every month. And several times they did not charge me a bounced check fee. I know they don't if the negative amount is less than $5.00, but a couple times it was a little over the $5.00 maximum.

Call Center

Posted by: |

Have been with Peoples United for about 15yrs. Generally I am pleased however, I have observed that in the last year, the call center is never available and always requires a lengthy wait for a return call from a representative. It appears that with all things, the bottom line is more important than customer service

Fine Print Gets You Every Time

they were advertising a bonus of $300 if you set up direct deposit.....unfortunately you had to have $75000 on deposit to avoid monthly fees of $30. Found this out when I went in with my wife to open the account. Interestingly, I said that I had made a mistake, and the rep told me that I didn't make a mistake, I hadn't been told until I sat down!

I see it as a mistake on my part, but wow, what an admission on their part!

Did not open account.

An Online Bank To Avoid

Posted by: |

This bank once had competitive rates for savings as well as CDs but that all changed after the merger. Their current rates are only slightly better than keeping your money under the mattress and their customer service or lack there of is abominable. I was locked out my account because it was deemed “dormant” and was sneakily charged a monthly $5 dollar maintenance fee. I spend several hours calling their published numbers but was instead diverted to a telemarking call center in India! I attempted to pull some funds out to a linked account via ACH transfer but was assessed a $37.50 charge for an overdraft. After several more hours of trying to contact the bank I was finally able to log in and confirm what was left of my balance after all of their exorbitant fees were subtracted. Now that my account is zeroed out all I want to add is good riddance to this awful bank!
