Primis Bank Now Limiting External Accounts To 3 - 10/11/2023

This morning I read at the Doctor of Credit (DoC) website ( that Primis Bank is now limiting the number of external accounts that you can link to your Primis account to just 3. Per the posts at DoC, the previous limit was 10 external accounts. I checked my own Primis savings account and my 7 external account links are still intact so I must be "grandfathered" to keep my current 7 external links. I assume that I will not be able to add any new/additional external accounts unless I bring my total to less than 3 beforehand. It sure would have been nice if Primis notified their current account holders of this new restrictive policy!

Wires Now Free At Primis - 9/1/2023

I know there's a lot of Primis hate around here but for what it's worth, got an email from them saying basically that because their ACH limits are so low (to prevent fraud... hm...) well anyway, that wires will now be free from their end -- and they'll even refund you up to $10 to help defray the cost from the sending bank. Still not as convenient as ACH but thought the info would be useful to know...

Evil And Primis

Posted by: |

People may wonder why I bother with him, and I'll explain. I just had a big class reunion, and there were several from the "i'm so damn smart" crowd who just have to explain to you how stupid you are and how successful they are. Ok maybe not several but certainly One.

This is Evil in a nutshell who completely dismisses any and all criticism of Primis and tells us we are just haters and liars and stupid. He can't deal with the fact that Primis is now almost middle of the road, ok top third, as far as internet bank saving rates for individual non business savers, has no answer when I point out you can do better with treasuries and has no answer to any legitimate criticism as well, such as one hour plus holds. Nope. He's too in love. And probably on the payroll.

My wife and I are simple people living in Columbus snow birding in Myrtle Beach and going on our 38th year of marriage. We both have financial backgrounds but I certainly can learn much more, and that's why I come to this board looking for some ideas. My wife does as well but won't say boo. There are some good ideas, and then there is Evil who is that bloody mouth at the class reunion you want to punch.

And that's why I cant stand Evil Capitalist. I just wanted to explain myself. My wife is already mortified by this post :). He brings the worst out of me. If need be delete. As Evil would say, I couldn't care less. He needs to tone it down, and so do I, and will.

Links To External Institutions

Currently Primis disabled the ability to link to external institutions using account and routing number, must be done via Plaid. CSR says IT is working on adding that feature back in. She says they are temporarily disabling this feature while accepting new applicants and they do not have a time frame when it's going to be available again! Anyone else run into this issue?

Need Money

Don't put Your money here. When you try to transfer out you get 'Connection failed'
There was a problem validating your credentials with ******. Please try again later.

You just can't get your money back. Customer service may answer in 50-57 minutes or they may just hang up on you. It doesn't matter which because customer service can't help with the problem.

Solution. Open an account somewhere else and transfer your fund into the new account.

Forever To Open Account No Communication Interest Rate Was A Hook

Posted by: |

Opened account with ALL required information on 2/7. "Under review" for two weeks. No reply to my inquires about delay. When account was finally opened, Primis adjusted my interest rated from the promised 5.03% APY (when I opened the account on 2/7/2023 to 4.27% on 2/23/2023. Calling today to close the account. I have a higher interest rate through Raisin Save Better, and I had NO trouble at all opening the account a couple of months ago.
