Salem Five

I Love Them!

Posted by: |

I had to write this review because I am shocked at these ratings. This bank is GREAT! Great products, no fees, good service, up to date with the times. I have the SalemFive Direct eOne Savings and Checking combo with an interest rate of 1.5%. Not bad for complete freedom to your money! Other Banks don't have a rate like this for CD's! I do agree; however, that their penalty for breaking a CD is much too high - they need to fix that!

If You Can Put Up With A 150-Year Old Institution . . .

Posted by: |

This 150-year old brink-n-mortar bank is trying to join the 21st century by becoming an "internet bank" - it fails msierably.They have no clue how internet banking works! And interest in learning how either. They think people still use horse-n-buggy for transport and women wear very tight corsetts.

So, why am I trusting them with my money? They have very conservative thinking - which is good. Their state - Massechussetts - forces them to insure a much higher limit than FDIC. They pay better interest rates. And I don't have to see their CEO or bank employees in person to aggravate me further.

They have STUPID limits on incoming deposits - as if Butch Cassidy is going to deposit their loot into this bank.

The CEO must be a complete idiot not to hire top-notch software talent to learn from them to become an internet bank.

Stay Away From Here

Fees are insane and customer service is not very helpful. Lost my job and overdrew my account by 9 dollars; was charged a 35 dollar fee. Deposited money to get back in the positive, but was not able to get the fee reversed or even reduced.

When I went to close my account, I was told I needed something notarized; which I cannot even afford until I start my new job. Just lacking compassion plus high fees. Stay away

Skip This Bank

Only use this bank if you have read all 25 pages of disclosure.
I have used online banking for many years now and have never run into the kinds of restrictions imposed by Salemfive.
For instance, you cannot transfer out any sums over $5000 and you cannot transfer out any sums over $20,000 per month.
A very similar situation for transfers into Salemfive.
Their website is not as user friendly as other online institutions I have used.
