Online banking experience

I use two online banking systems when it comes to the accounts I have with them. I decided to go online about year and half ago, because I was tired of paying for the interest when I go my bank statements in the mail. I thought it was a waste of money and time, when all I could do is just deposit my checks right into my bank account. It was extremely helpful, using Suntrust and Nationwide online banking was easy, fast, and efficient. I would highly recommend anyone to use online banking because of how easy it is. Its also helpful to those who are low on time quite often (such as myself). Overall, I highly recommend any bank account you have to have it online.

happy customer for years

I have had a checking account with suntrust bank for over 15 years.I have been very happy with them and remained loyal ever since then.I use to bank with another bank and every time i would have a check that was not covered i had overdrafts that were plaguing me.I started an account with suntrust and it was not long that i got enrolled in an overdraft protection plan they offer.The banker lady told me that i should apply for it and if approved that it would help me in times like that.I really liked the fact that the bank is only a few miles from my house as well.I use to get a paper check at my old job and could not get to the bank till 5 in the evening which is when they closed but the guy at that bank knew i would be there every thursday then and he would make sure i got my deposit in before closing up.Talk about service now that was service and i very much appreciated it.

When you need to find a bank ASAP!

I was in need of finding a local bank as soon as possible. It was after 5pm so I got on the internet and started looking for a local bank I could visit the next day. While searching I came across SunTrust Bank and couldn't believe what I was reading, "Apply online for a checking account with SunTrust Bank". In a few minutes I had successfully opened a checking account with SunTrust. The next day I was able to go to the physical bank here in town, sign one document and then make a deposit. I was told it would take up to 10 days to receive my debit card, it was here in 6. I also received a few checks should I need them. Since opening the account I couldn't be more pleased. I use the mobile app almost daily, it's easy to read and navigate. I've been pleasantly surprised with my new bank and would recommend their services to anyone.

Suntrust Bank Is A Scam

The positive reviews for this bank appeared nice to me so I decided to use this bank for my new business. Huge mistake! I did all the paperwork online submitted requested documentation and sent electronic deposit from my personal bank account. I received confirmation email that account was open. Then received a call from Karrie Miller stating my account would not be opened and funds were being returned to me via PAPER CHECK. This was my first problem. Why am I being sent a paper check when funds were sent electronically. Ok whatever I had to wait 10 days. Waited the 10 days no check. Called Karrie back now I’m being told I have to wait 14 days. So I wait 14 more days still no check. This time I called the 800 number since they actually sent me paper checks with my company name printed on the front of them and an actual bank statement!! I spoke with an agent who told me the account was open but would be closed in five days so guess what I did? Wrote two checks for bills I needed to pay and SUNTRUST refused to pay the checks! I feel scammed discriminated against mislead and taken advantage of! I have never been treated so badly by a bank and am so upset over the additional fees I’ve accumulated by trusting this business please beware! I am hoping this bank has a Duns& Bradstreet Account because I am reporting this and I have receipts of proof and also looking into filing discrimination suit against Karrie and this bank for allowing this to go on!
