No bounced check fees!

Posted by: wolfluvr | Jun 29, 2015

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.

Fine Print Gets You Every Time

Posted by: weiss800 | Oct 3, 2018

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.

Great experience if you can find a walk in branch

I have been banking with People's United bank for several years now. In the beginning it was called People's Bank, which was very appropriate because they were really customer service driven, for the "people". I live in a small town where there was a local branch that you could walk in to do your banking , and it also had a drive up window. The drive up window was very convenient, the service outside and inside was outstanding. I started out with a checking account and savings account, checking had a very small minimum and there weren't any fees for using the ATM or using a foreign ATM. As time went on, the fees and balance minimums changed, making it challenging to avoid having any monthly fees. The system was also changing, less drive up windows and less walk in branches. Today I am still with them, but seriously thinking of changing banks. I have to go into a Stop and Shop grocery store if I need to go to the branch to get something done or speak with someone. If I am looking for a stand alone branch I have to drive 25 minutes to get to one. When I do go into the bank at the grocery store or a stand alone branch, the customer service is excellent, the employees try to treat you as if they know you and they are still that small town bank. Unfortunately, I feel very inconvenienced by them and will probably move on.

Student Checking

Peoples is now charging students a $3 fee for a paper statement. My student was unaware of the fee. As with most students, they never opened the statement so they were unaware that they were being charged this fee. So much for a free student checking account. HORRIBLE!
