Sofi Money To Stop Paying Interest - 5/5/2022

Effective June 5, 2022, we will be implementing the following change: • SoFi Money accounts will no longer earn interest. Interest can only be accrued on balances in SoFi Checking and Savings (1.25% APY with direct deposit and 0.70% APY without direct deposit). I have supported all of sofi. But to force changes not making alot of sense I am sure the free atm withdrawels worldwide will go away also. Back to Schwab. Sofi thanks but no thanks.

Sofi Ups Checking/Savings To 1.25% - 4/5/2022

Just got an in-app notification that Sofi checking and savings have been increased from 1.00% to 1.25% for those with Direct Deposit. The email also states they got rid of the 50,000 cap for higher interest, so it applies for the entire balance. Those without Direct Deposit get 0.70%.

So Far So Good

Open checking, savings, and investing. Set up direct deposit through getting 1.25% up to $150k. But still, .7% is 2nd best to that Bask bank. Also, I was able to link all of my accounts except Ally Bank. Ally Bank is horrible, and that is why I'm switching. I'm also getting a quote on a home loan that I'm in the market for. I bought $100 of crypto too to test, and it worked well. Been looking for a checking and savings combo account for months, and it looks like I found one that hits all the buttons.

Sofi Checking And Savings Does Not Allow Beneficiaries

Posted by: |

At the time of this review, I can confirm that there is no way to add a beneficiary to SoFi Checking and Savings. Sometimes there is confusion because apparently you can add a beneficiary to a SoFi IRA brokerage account, but not to a Checking and Savings. I'm in for the $300 DD bonus, but I can't stick around after that. No POD beneficiary is a long term dealbreaker for me.

Caveat Emptor

Posted by: |

Setting up a joint account is a nightmare, requiring two separate registrations. Getting them to join is met with further problems.
Telephone help is very poor, some handled offshore, with variable competency. Could not get adequate answers to important questions.
Transferring funds from other banks to Sofi is through a third party, PLAID, which requires you to give them your secure Password to your other bank account! Security??????
Sofi Bank has only existed since 2022 and appears to be pushing hard for their other Sofi products.
They offer only Checking and Saving account combined but not one or the other, separately.
The main attraction is relatively high interest rate, but other online banks are likely to increase theirs with the Feds changing plans.
Before jumping in, check all reviews, not just the glowing ones that are at the top.
Be aware that there is a limit to transfer money out to another Bank (via Plaid) to $5000 at one time and total of $50,000 per month, per customer service rep. info. (could not find in writing anywhere on their web site). Easy to get money in but hard to get it out if you have a large deposit.
There is no obvious way of communicating directly by email with the Bank.

So Hard To Work With....

Posted by: |

I had tried opening a SoFi money account a few years back, wasn't approved, tried talking to support, never could tell me why. They dropped their rate so I didn't really care and moved on

So, last week I saw the blurb about the 1.25% with direct deposit and $300 bonus and figured I'd give it another shot, went back, tried again, after uploading my photo ID I was approved, no problem.

Then, tried to add DW to my account as a joint holder (since they don't support beneficiaries). I sent the invitation, she filled out the form, immediately rejected for "Our inability to verify certain information that is required under the Patriot Act.". Really, what? No offer to upload photo ID or other supporting documents, just NO.

Did a chat with customer support, they said, her account is locked nothing we can do, have to wait 7 days for it to unlock before they can look at it and try again. Really, 7 days. Fine, it's still a good rate in today's market so I wait.

7 days later, go through the process again, same problem. Request denied, same reason.

Chat with customer support, can't tell me why she can't be added, tell me to wait 7 days and try again. Call customer support, can't be told why she can't be added. Ask to speak to a supervisor, wait 10 minutes, get a supervisor, confirms my information, then hangs up.

Oy, no thanks. I'll do my direct deposit, get my $300 bonus and close the account. These guys are not ready for prime time and I don't trust them with my money.
