Bank Review


I have a personal account and a business account at SunTrust Bank and have been extremely happy with the service.  The staff is friendly and most accomodating.  I use bill pay and am totally comfortable with the easy to use web site.  I also have my mortgage thru SunTrust and getting the mortgage was an easy call to the loan officer who was sharp and business smart - 15 year loan at a great rate.  I would recommend SunTrust to all my friends and family.

All Around Good

Posted by: domino | Jun 27, 2014

My experience with this bank has been all-around good. I rarely have an issue getting checks in the mail, depositing checks, direct deposit, or anything like that. There are a lot of interesting and good products that they give, and the fees that I've been charged have been very reasonable from my experience. The only thing that I can say is that the web and mobile products are okay. The website itself sometimes takes several moments to load, and the phone app gave me so much trouble that I was forced to delete it for simply being nigh unusable.

Not So Great

I have had too many problems with this bank. When I call about my charge card I must speak to a supervisor to get anywhere. When I get a credit on my account, I see the bank lists it as a debit. I have gotten the run around too many times. And if you withdraw cash from your own bank's atm and accidentally use your credit card instead of your debit card…they charge you 25% fee! A nice supervisor did place a refund, but the bank listed it as a debit.
