I have been banking with this institution for over 5 years now and have really enjoyed it. I really like the fact that I am able to get reimbursed for ATM fees when I use my card at any ATM. Its almost like a savings account for myself. In addition I like how I'm able to use the mobile app to deposit money into my account for quicker access to my funds. I have been very happy with this bank and have often considered drafting money out of my check and depositing it into my checking account to save more money, but I'm not sure this is an option at this bank. Overall I have been very happy and would recommend their use to others.
I have been a customer of Scottrade Bank since 2013 and have enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Scottrade Bank does not have brick-and-mortar branches and is completely online-based. This aspect allows Scottrade Bank to reduce fees and pass the savings on to their clients. There are no maintenance fees with any of their deposit accounts and they refund any ATM fees if you need to withdraw cash. Furthermore, their Customer Service department is completely based in the United States, so you will always speak with a live representative that works directly within the corporate facilities. The user interface on their website is extremely efficient and simple to use. I can easily move funds to my brokerage account or external institutions with a few clicks of a mouse without the run-around given from other institutions. Overall, Scottrade Bank has provided an excellent overall experience and I have literally no complaints to speak of.
Scottrade Bank was the best experience in banking I have ever witnessed. The Bank is set up to support Scottrade's brokerage clients. The only requirement is that you have a qualified Scottrade brokerage account with at least $500 in equity. Scottrade Bank's deposit accounts have no minimum deposit requirements or hidden maintenance fees. Their customer service team is based in St. Louis, Mo, so you are sure to receive a live, domestic operator when needed. In my 4+ years banking with Scottrade Bank, I have called the customer service department on a couple occasions to ask questions and each time was a pleasant experience. the representatives are very knowledgeable and willing to help each and every time.
Scottrade Bank is by far the best internet bank I have ever experienced. You must have a qualified brokerage account with Scottrade, Inc. in order to establish an account at Scottrade Bank, but it is worth it. Scottrade Bank offers competitive rates on their deposit accounts and doesn't include all the unnecessary fluff that other institution's accounts carry. I have never experienced any issues with Scottrade Bank and rarely ever find the need to call their Bank Support department in need for help. On one occasion, I did need to call the Bank Support department in regards to a question I had with setting up my account. I was able to speak to a real, live representative stationed in America, without an automated system. The Bank Support representative was extremely helpful and would happily contact them again if a question were to arise.
Firstly, I just wanted to say that I'm a real person and not an employee of Scottrade or anything.
My fiancee and I both have bank accounts with Scottrade. If you have a normal bank and are sick and tired of the "banker's hours" and the nonchalant charging of your account and the poor customer service, consolidate your assets and move to this bank. No fees, no nonsense. Local brokerage branches are everywhere. You can always get in touch with a real person without navigating through millions of automated call options. During operating hours, your local branch will get all your requests and will even call you by name (if they know you well enough). I can't say enough good things about these guys. But maybe that's because of where we have come from.
My fiancee and I have recently gotten engaged and were looking to start a joint brokerage, banking, and savings accounts. Here is where the story begins. We both have had so many negative experiences with banks -- and I'm just your above-average Joe. I have no credit card debt, no outstanding balances, I have a great credit score, and I float at least a 2k balance in my account a month. I go to school full time and I work full time. My fiancee has just recently graduated law school, and is working as well.
I got so tired of the bankers hours, the mistakes the bank made and the horrible customer service. We both have banked with BB&T, CB&T, and Bank of America. I have to say, Scottrade makes these guys look pathetic. Let's be honest.
For people that are nervous about switching to a bank that does most of its business online, don't be afraid. It's well worth it -- I guarantee you'll like them more than you do your current bank.

I enjoy this institution to keep a portion of my money with. I both a checking and a money market account with this bank and use it mostly for savings. I like the ability to direct deposit funds into this account from my payroll, and because there is not physical presence of this bank I also find that the temptation to take out money is less. One feature that I enjoy is the ability to have ATM fees rebated when using any ATM. I really like this because it does not limit where I take funds out from, and often find myself using this card when I have to unexpectedly take out cash. There have been few occasions when I needed to talk with someone about this card but it did happen most recently when I was traveling abroad. I was having trouble finding a solution to get cash while in Europe without having to pay high fees to do so with my other bank. Upon calling them I found out that I was able to do this without any additional fees, and again the ATM fees would be reimbursed. I was a little skeptical about this when I took out money at an ATM in Europe but was happy when it worked just as they described. The bank representatives were very knowledgeable when talking to them about this scenario, and provided excellent customer service.
