Opening My Radius Account Was EASY PEASY!

As opposed to poor Richard, my experience setting up my on-line account with Radius was delightful and easy! I provided the personal information that Radius required and the banking information for the transfer of funds to my new HIGH YIELD account. I think it took about 10 minutes to enter all the information and I was approved approximately 90 minutes later. The funds were transferred from my 'old' bank to Radius within 48 hours. The transfer would have been practically instantaneous if I had used my debit card, but my 'old' bank would not allow me transfer an excessive amount $$ via my debit card. Re: your comment concerning compounding interest daily vs. monthly... ONLY if you are funding an account in EXCESS of 6 figures, the DIFFERENCE in interest amount earned over the course of 365 days or 12 months would not buy you a cheeseburger. I am thrilled with the interest I will be earning on my deposit(s) with Radius since my 'old' big bank was paying me 3 tenths of 1% or on average 19 cents per month. And yes, I maintain in excess of $2500...

Highly Satisfied with Radius Bank

Posted by: sab1202 | Jun 23, 2015

I have had accounts with Radius for several months now and I must say that it is among the best banking experiences I've ever had. It's extremely easy to set up your accounts online, and they don't have any pesky account maintenance fees for checking. Their website and mobile banking app are very useful for making changes, transfers, or for checking account balances instantly and accurately. The customer service is great as well. The employees are all very friendly, courteous, and always willing to help you out and answer your questions in detail. They also make it very easy to withdraw money from ATMS with no fees of their own. This way, I can readily access cash from my checking account even when I'm away from the Boston area. The local appeal of this bank is something I really appreciate too. I would highly recommend this bank to my friends, family, and everyone in general.

Advertised One Rate, Paying Another

Posted by: jojojojo | Apr 14, 2016

When i was researching high-interest savings accounts, Radius was advertised @ 1.10%. As soon as I signed up, it dropped down to 1.01%. Was that a type on their end?

Webpage is a bit confusing. When i contacted customer service to find out how to modify or cancel future automatic transfers, they didn't know how. Another rep told me that I couldn't cancel automatic transfers unless I closed the account. That same rep also asked me for my SSN# via the chat, I don't think they're supposed to ask that.

Will be researching other banks for better rates and service.

Unsatisfactory

The interest rate that's offered initially looks great. But once you get through the cumbersome registration process, aspects become not so great.

First, interest is compounded monthly, not daily as other competitive online banks do. The registration process isn't instantaneous.The bank makes you wait a few days as it processes your external initial deposit before you can get your account. It then never remembers the external bank you used to fund your account and you have to setup and reverify that external bank a second time all over again.

Once registered online, you find out the maximum daily external transfer amount in or out for the first 90 days is only $5,000. After that period of time it's not much more. When calling them to complain about this limit, they tell you it's for security purposes and to use wire transfer (at additional fee) if you want to fund your account with more money, or use your external bank's transfer process assuming they can transfer in higher amounts.

Totally ridiculous, as this severely limits easy access to your money, both in transferring in and out. No thanks. I'm closing this account as fast as possible.

p.s. If you want to close your account, you can't do it online or immediately over the phone. You have to request closure over the phone where they'll instruct you to write a letter making this request with your signature. Then they might close the account and cut a check by mail for the remaining balance. If that doesn't take the cake, I don't know what does.
