Slick And Fast

I worked for a couple of weeks trying to buy a CD from an institution that was paying .05% higher than Popular Direct and finally gave up. I went to the Popular Direct website and within 24 hours, I had filled out the application, confirmed the two micro deposits with my linked bank and the CD was purchased. Really well done website. These folks have their act together. Yes, it's a minuscule 0.05% less in the two year CD rate but the absence of brain damage is worth it!

No Problems With Frozen Account Or Transferring Money

Posted by: susancar | Jun 21, 2018

Reading all these negative reviews about this bank ~ I panicked and tried to transfer $5,000 out a couple days ago. Just checked today and had no problems what so ever. I have had an account of some form with Popular Bank for a couple years now; I just keep opening up a new account when they offer better rates and transfer all but $500 until the old account has been opened 180 days to avoid the early withdraw fee... THAT is a pain, but I must say I have never encountered any issues and whenever I call customer service, I am satisfied with the service that I get. Their website isn't as sophisticated as others, but I keep getting the great interest rate which makes me stay.

Watch Out!

Take a look at the very fine print on the account agreement before you do business with this bank. When you close your account, they DO NOT accrue interest to the closing date. That can get expensive if you don't pay attention.

Absolutely, Astonishingly Terrible Web App

Posted by: ted9891 | Jun 5, 2019

I have CDs across a number of banks. Banco Popular's CD web UI is, by far, the absolutely WORST web app. The login system is arcane, slow, and error prone. The design hasn't changed since the 90s. I'm moving my CD as soon as it matures.
