I have been Poppy Bank client for # of years. They advertise locally as a business bank, altho my savings & checking accounts are personal. My savings has been .5%, but when I went in to branch last week & asked if they were going to raise it- they did. It's now 1%.
Not sure if based on balance, but worth research, especially for those in area of branches.
I see comments about poor phone & online service. Branch service has always been A+. No problems with my online or app, altho they did lower max mobile deposits recently.
First, Note that of the 4 prior reviews, 3 rated 1 star and 1 rated 4. I decided NEVER again to use PB. Here are some of the major reasons: 1) lack of support at the Santa Rosa corp. level related to not being able to print check, and they never followed up; 2) at the branch level - service also has been poor - a) the Branch manager gave me incorrect info about minimum balance to avoid monthly charges for my checking account; I had to correct him and he then agreed that there were NO monthly charges; b) I have been given incorrect info regarding FDIC coverage by staff at the branch; c) none of the 3 staff at the Corte Madera branch knew how to wire money and they had to call Santa Rosa; this took 40 minutes; d) based on repeated interactions, in my professional opinion Barbara at the Corte Madera branch provides poor customer service.She communicates in a rude manner and appears need basic training in customer interactions. Finally, the Corte Madera branch has new branch manages and staff frequently. Finally I get MUCH BETTER rates with Ally Bank or Synchrony Bank. AND, their service is 5 Star. For Real. Hope this review helps.
there's always a reason a Podunk bank offers an above average rate. The opening process for an account is tedious with Poppy asking for far more personal info than necessary and required by gov't regs. Just tried to open a second cd and got so frustrated I took my business elsewhere.
