Ponce Bank's HYSA Is Now Top Tier @5.05%

Posted by: |

I changed the title from the original post to reflect the new higher HYSA rate of 5.05%. Ponce Bank, like several others, is affiliated with Savebetter. Ponce has been middle of the road rate-wise for HYSA. They have now moved to the forefront. I have several accounts with FIs affiliated with Savebetter. It is interesting to see the competition between the financial institutions to set the highest rate. It is also encouraging to see new financial institutions coming on board. I have nothing but good things to say about Savebetter and how they operate. I hear customer service is less than stellar, but I have never tried to contact them. I simply park my money and collect my interest, which has been steadily rising due to the automatic rate increases I get whenever my FI raises their offering rate.

I Like Savebetter Platform

No Bank Is Perfect

Posted by: |

Like most online banks, Ponce Bank outsources it's servicing agent; and in this case it's SaveBetter. For the most part this review is based on my seven months of experience with SaveBetter.

PROS:
1. Account application is simple and straight forward.
2. Very simple & user-friendly account platform.
3. Low opening balance of only ONE Dollar.
4. Super-fast ACH transfers; currently NO $ limit.
5. No fees, even for closing account.
6. Accrued interest is paid if closing account, on the next month statement.
7. No new application required if opening an account with another bank in the SB platform.
8. Knowledgeable, friendly customer service agents at SaveBetter.
9. Interest is compounded daily, credited monthly.
10. On request, SaveBetter will email you a Beneficiary form...(requires last 4 digits of their Social)
11. Ponce Bank has a "A" health rating on DepositAccounts.com

CONS:
1. SaveBetter only allows you to link ONE bank account. I linked my local brick-&-mortar bank checking account.

Excellent Experience

Posted by: |

I have opened account with them using SaveBetter.com and I experienced no problems no issues just nice customer service...

Excellent bank

I deposited $20,000 dollars split up between a savings account and a three month CD. Their rates are competitive with three month CDs at 0.25 percent interest. Their savings accounts have 0.10 percent interest. These rates are slightly better than the big name banks. Everyone in this bank is competent and caring. Their checking accounts are totally free with no strings attached in terms of fees. Again, this is better than what I have seen in other big name banks. My whole family does their banking with this bank because of the above. I wholeheartedly recommend this bank to anyone looking for a good local banking institution.

Money Market Really Lacking

Posted by: |

Ponce advertises money market rates that are competitive but they are not. I signed up a while ago and today when my other accounts are getting 2% this ponce bank is .41%. That is correct not a mistake. They are giving .41%.
