As one of the largest banks in the United States, US Bank draws upon over 150 years of banking experience to offer its personal, business, commercial, and government banking customers a full suite of financial products and services. The bank offers its customers quick and secure access to funds through online and mobile banking options. US Bank’s depository banking products – for both its individual and corporate customers – include savings accounts, money market accounts, checking accounts, and Certificates of Deposits (CDs).
The bank’s personal savings accounts, money market accounts, and checking accounts can be easily linked together in various relationship banking packages, with attendant banking perks in each scenario. US Bank’s personal money market accounts yield better interest rates for larger account balances, and there is a tax-advantaged Individual Retirement Account (IRA) option available as a money market account. Personal CDs are also available, with terms ranging from 1 month to 60 months.
US Bank’s business checking accounts vary based upon account balance and monthly transaction volume. These business checking accounts can be combined with other business banking products and services in a variety of relationship banking packages – again, with attendant perks for each scenario. The bank offers a business “sweep” savings account that automatically transfers excess account balances from a business checking account into a business savings account with higher interest rates. Just like the personal money market accounts, business money market accounts yield tiered interest rates, depending upon account balance. US Bank’s business CD terms go from 14 days to 5 years.
In 1863, US Bank was established as the First National Bank of Cincinnati. Today, US Bank is owned by bank holding company US Bancorp. The headquarters for both the bank and its parent company are in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I opened an Gold Checking Account with them and closed it and transferred out the funds about a year later, only because I very seldom used it. About a week later, I received a check in the mail from US Bank for $0.02!! Apparently this was for the accrued but unposted interest which my account had earned when I closed it. I have never dealt which such an ETHICAL bank!! Even if they were legally required to return the $0.02 to me, obviously I couldn't have cared less had they just kept it. For its honesty, US Bank deserves 5 stars!!
I love this bank. I do pretty much everything online and so online banking is also a must for me. My favorite feature is the online bill pay. I set up all my bills with them and they automatically are set up to be taken out the day that I get pay. The convenience is huge for me since I am so busy. This is also fee free which makes it that much better. The proccess was super easy.
I have a checking account with US Bank that I've had now for about 6 years. I've never had any issue with them and the services I get are decent. I pay about 15 dollars a month and have a bill pay service through them which is covered by that monthly fee. I also have auto-payments set up for my other accounts with them and direct deposit of my paycheck into my checking account. I use that account and the debit card they give me to make other purchases and payments online. I once had an issue where my card number was stolen and used, but they were very quick to identify the fraud and contacted me before I even knew it had occurred. They had prevented the funds from being withdrawn and waited for confirmation from me that I had made the purchases, which I had not. They were quick to replace my card and their vigilance saved me time and money. I was very happy with that interaction.
I went to US Bank to open a basic checking account with them. I waited for 10-15 minutes before a banker acknowledged me. Eventually he began to help me with the process of opening a new account. While he reviewed my identification card and other paperwork I needed to give him, I was told it was not wise to bank with them as he believed I didn't have "enough" money to cover the monthly maintenance fees. I was surprised, because I never heard of a bank rejecting a new customer for that reason. It wasn't his business to tell me that and the only job he had to do was open the account, and let me worry if I didn't have money to keep my account open and in the positive. I was appalled and left the place angry. I eventually did sign up online with no issues and the person who helped me was very efficient and did their duties as an employee. I will avoid going to that local branch as much as I can, because I do not support unsatisfactory experiences/duties.
