Now 2.4% annual. Thought drops would be spread out on a monthly basis, this one much sooner. Hate to speculate, but the bare minimum may be all that’s left riding out the 180 days.

So Far So Good. I'm Hopeful

Posted by: Buckeyes | Aug 16, 2019

Having the same site setup as CIT, I felt fairly comfortable making a deposit with this company. However an unexpected expense came along which caused me to ask for a withdrawal once my original deposit cleared (4 or 5 business days). Popular sent my withdrawal overnight and it's already in my checking account. Nice. Since rates will not be going up for years, I'm hopeful I can make a go of it with this company.

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.

Ridiculous Hoops To Open An Account

My wife tried three times to open an account. Customer service can not help. They said we have to wait over 10 days and try again. Why is it so hard to open a savings account?
