UFB Direct Ups Money Market And Savings Account Rates To 2.21% APY - 8/11/2022

Well, the credit for this one goes to my wife. Tonight, out of the blue, she asked me "What about the UFB 2.21% offers?" I replied "Huh, what are you talking about?" Well, she was right on. UFB Direct increased the rates on their Money Market and Savings accounts from 1.81% APY to 2.21% APY. Also, interestingly, they brand the two accounts as UFB Rewards Money Market and UFB Rewards Savings. I have no idea if the word "Rewards" is new or what "Rewards" are offered. But, I thought I would share this as it is a very competitive rate....and my wife told me "tell those people on that web site that I found this." https://www.ufbdirect.com/Savings

Great online savings account...

Posted by: |

UFB Bank has a great online savings account. The rate was so much higher than I could find anywhere else, especially local banks. Opening the account was very easy and only took a few minutes. Once the account was open it was easy to transfer money into the account via ACH. The website itself was very nice and was extremely easy to use. It had all the necessary information easily at hand and kept a record of your transactions along with all your old statements. Given that this bank is FDIC insured is a great peace of mind because that means at least 250,000 dollars is insured by the FDIC. If for any reason this bank was to go out of business the FDIC would step in and insure that depositors would get all their money back. I recommend UFB wholeheartedly.

UFB Direct Doesn't Always Pass Along Rate Increases

Posted by: |

Interest rates on savings accounts have been rising rapidly over the past few months. UFB (Axos) recently increased their rate and explained to me that I don't get the rate increase because these higher rates are for "new accounts." They made no offer to move my funds to a new account or match that rate. I called back and a rep moved my funds to the new, higher interest account. Yesterday, they passed along their new rate to my account. Except for the one stinker, the customer service reps have been very good.

Thanks.... But No Thanks.

I had a account with UFB a couple years ago. They were always a little difficult to deal with but had good rates. I could usually call and they would raise transfer limits immediately. I stopped using the account when rates fell and they closed it. They called me a couple days ago to entice me to reopen the account with their new rates under Axos ownership. I took the bait. They told me this and that and the people working there seem nice but unfortunately come across very amateurish and not well-informed. They would not raise the ACH limits enough to accomodate a inbound transfer, even though I was told it wouldn't be a problem.. They wanted me to do a wire transfer instead. When I tried to link them to a external bank account to push funds, the other bank said they were having a problem linking to Axos. If it's this hard to get money in, I can only imagine how hard it must be to get money out. No thanks...life is too short to jump through these hoops to make a deposit. There are plenty of other banks easier to deal with.

Warning- They Freeze Your Account If You Transfer In A Large Amount

Posted by: |

I just opened an account and transferred in most of my savings. Then as soon as the funds showed "available" 4 days later, UFB froze my account and will not let me access funds or even withdraw 5 dollars unless I send a photo of myself holding my drivers license and a utility bill with my adress from the past 30 days. They are refusing to even let me speak with a supervisor. I have banked with many institutions over the past 40 years and never encountered anything like this. So please be very very careful.
