Just Read The Account Conditions Before Investing

I have investments in a CD and Ultimate Savings Account with Popular and all has gone well. But then again, I read the conditions of the Ultimate Savings Account and understood how it worked before I plunked my money down.

So many of the complaining customers act so outraged when the bank treats their account exactly like they said they would - - in writing.

Yesterday I did a transfer from Popular to my external account and it was there this morning.

Yes, rates in a savings account can go down. That's the nature of a savings account. If you don't want that to happen, buy a CD.

The representatives on the phone have always been responsive and polite to me, likely because I'm polite with them. Try it.

Savings Rate Dropped To 2.5%

Have not had any problems with Popular Direct. Rate just lowered from 2.55 to 2.5 FYI.

Like So Many Others, This Bank Put A Freeze On My Account

Posted by: willy12 | Aug 7, 2019

With NO ADVANCE NOTICE. That caused me to "bounce" a transfer and it left a bad taste in my mouth so I transferred out & closed the account as soon as my 6 months were up.

They currently have a top rate but with a history of new accounts while leaving old customers with lower rates.

Because of that, I would avoid this bank.

Never Trust Popular Direct

Popular Direct advertised 2.55% savings interest and we open a savings account and deposited close to $250K. Over the next 15 days, Popular Bank dropped the interest rate to 2.37%. We moved all our monie out since there are other banks which pays higher interest. Popular Bank wants to charge $4.00 a month per account and another $25 early termination fee. They are not gracious in waiving anything due to their shortcoming. NEVER BANK WITH POPULAR DIRECT!!
