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.

Outstanding Financial Institution

Posted by: Badger1945 | Jul 6, 2016

I am fortunate enough to be able to say I have been a customer of Suntrust Bank since my days at Ft. Lee Army base in Virginia. That goes back to 1991 and many things have taken place in my financial life since I first opened an checking and savings account at Suntrust.

My wife at the time attempted to clean out my checking and savings account at Suntrust so she could run off with her boyfriend back in 1993. Before the bank would give her the funds she was trying to take, I received a call from my banker letting me know what was in the process of taking place. I immediately headed to the bank and stopped the transactions she was attempting to make. Had I not gotten that call, I would of had about $125 to my name but, thanks to the concern of my local banker, my funds were intact. Suntrust helped me make an arrangement with my then about to be ex wife to get the funds she was authorized to have.

In 2007, I was in Lake Tahoe, California on vacation. I headed across the border to Billy's Casino in Stateline Nevada. I attempted to get $300 out of my checking account and when I saw the cashier, I was told it was going to cost me $39.95 to access my own money. I told them to cancel the transaction. A few days later, I did a check online and discovered that the casino put the charge through and it was removed out of my checking account without my signature. I contacted the bank, they put the funds back into my account and went back to Billy's Casino to resolve the matter. Without their help, I would probably have lost $300.00.

I rate Suntrust outstanding and I hope the above helps support my rating. Thank you.

Decent Bank

a I've had suntrust for 10 years. No issues. if you're savings account goes down to 0 funds, it will automatically close, so look out for that. I have no complaints about the bank though.

Banks Do Us Very Wrong.....

Not only SunTrust are no good, no bank in America is good. I will never bank here. I just opened a new account and one day later it's closed so, why freakin open the account in the first place? Stupid! I'm done with banks, I'll buy a safe, that way I'm not paying for my own money, no fees. Everything is free!!!!! These banks think their so clever. If they so clever, why do the bank allow someone to go in debt? Just like Metro PCS, you not bout to owe them nothing. They won't allow nothing to be not paid. These banks are straight bull shit and they rob us all for our money.....
