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.


I have been with SunTrust since 2013. Today I logged into my savings account and saw an "Excessive withdrawal fee" Are you kidding me? They charged me $6.00 for that. I work hard for MY money they have no right to tell me how many times I can withdraw or charge me a fee. I called and had it refunded and they were nice about it but its still ridiculous. What is happening in corporate America these days?

Not Worth The Hassle; Choose A Different Bank

The customer service has really gotten worse over the years. For one, filing disputes is very difficult as the claims team fails to communicate with the customer about the claim. I've had this issue twice with Suntrust. Secondly, most branches are only open from 9 am to 4 pm. This is inconvenient for most working people. Thirdly, I've banked at places with lower fees. Fourth, the website and app are frequently down. The college I attended had a Suntrust account on campus which made it convenient at the time. So I signed up and stayed loyal years after graduating. However, I have finally decided to close my account with them because there are many better options out there. Save yourself the hassle and go with a better bank.

Never Again

For starters, $25.95 for 50 checks?!?!?!
Slowest service on Earth. Fees on ALL sides. Better off keeping money under your pillow--you will earn more that way!
