USAA Bank is the Texas-based banking component of the United States Automobile Association, a privately held financial services company offering an array of insurance, banking, investment, and lending products and services. The company’s target market and membership field is limited to members of the U.S. military and their immediate families. The company also has a history of superior credit and service ratings, in addition to its repeated recognitions by major publications for being one of the best companies to work for.

On its personal banking side, USAA Bank offers deposit and loan products to serve its members savings and lending needs. Checking, savings, Certificate of Deposit (CD) and IRA CD accounts are available, as well as auto, home, and personal loans. USAA’s checking accounts feature a free checking option that offers free mobile deposit, BillPay, funds transfers to and from any bank, and zero liability for unauthorized charges. The bank also has a secure checking account option that comes with a monthly fee in exchange for identity theft protection services and a World MasterCard debit card. The savings account offering has no monthly service fee and comes with a debit card that can be used at any ATM nationwide. Transaction fees garnered from non-USAA ATM partners are reimbursed up to a certain amount each month. The savings account also features free funds transfers and tiered interest rates that grow as the account balance reaches certain thresholds. Both the checking and savings account offerings come with USAA’s financial management software, MoneyManager, which helps track expenses and map out a budget.

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and IRA CDs are also available and can be opened in term lengths ranging from 1 month to 7 years. CDs come in three forms: Variable, Adjustable Rate, and Fixed Rate, which allow for additional deposits, a one-time rate adjustment, and no additional deposits, respectively.

USAA Bank online banking provides a secure and versatile web-based system through which members can manage their deposit accounts, as well as other accounts they have with USAA. The Internet platform makes it easy to accomplish tasks like Bill Pay, mobile deposit, and funds transfers. USAA MoneyManager is the bank’s proprietary financial management system that gives members the ability to track their spending and budget. USAA’s mobile banking system consists of a mobile optimized website and mobile banking apps to make banking from a smartphone or tablet device easy and convenient.

USAA Bank was originally established as a federal savings bank with the FDIC in 1983 and is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. The USAA group began after a group of Army officers insured one another when they could not obtain auto insurance due to their “high-risk” stereotype. Over 60 years later the banking component of the insurance company was started. USAA Bank serves its members through a limited number of financial service centers located across the country, as well as through online and telephone banking representatives.

User Friendly Online Bank

I've been a customer of USAA for nine years. I currently have multiple checking and savings accounts with them. USAA makes it easy to open new accounts in order to better budget your money. I've had one occasion of someone getting into my account and USAA's customer service was top notch and took care of everything for me quickly and efficiently. I truly feel like a valued customer. They also refund all ATM fees and have no minimum balance fees. I can't recall ever being charged a fee on my checking or saving accounts. Their website an app are user friendly and intuitive. The one negative is that their interest rates are nothing to write home about. Overall, I feel like you can't get any better than USAA.

Reliable, Easy to Use Banking

Posted by: Kaesterie | 10 hours ago

I have been a member with USAA for about 14 years and have never had bad banking experience through them. My entire immediate family members are also USAA members who have been happy with their banking services. There are no minimum checking and savings account requirements and no monthly or yearly fees as well as no overdraft feels. Even though there is no physical bank to go to, they have a fantastic online system as well as an application in which you can scan checks to deposit them immediately. I use the scanning feature on a consistent basis and have never had an issue. Whenever I have had questions the customer service representative have been very friendly and informative. I think the only complaint I have is their hours in which you can reach a representative. Overall all have had great service and will be using them for a long time to come.

My Experience with USAA

Overall I'm quite satisfied with USAA. The call center is reasonably quick and efficient. The bill pay feature saves me a lot of time and helps me keep track of my spending. Whenever I've had questions or concerns, a friendly agent has been able to answer most questions without having to put me on hold. When one of the customer service agents has needed to research something, they will call me back rather than leaving me on hold listening to dreadful hold music.

The account summaries are clear and legible. I don't have to go rooting around to find information. The web interface is very useable and I can easily find my way around the site.

The interest rates are quite low, but that's more a function of the disfunctional market system we've adopted in this country. I don't generally trust banks (and who would given the market crash and abysmal response) and I'm always a tad suspicious, but I feel that USAA is genuinely trying to be a good actor.

USAA from good to bad.

I joined up with USAA way back in 2006 after my parents having been customers for at least a decade. Originally I joined up for car insurance but quickly went on to get a savings, checking and credit card account in addition.

Originally USAA was the best. I had worked for various banks (that I would never recommend) so I felt like I was able to appropriately judge their practices. The fees used to be very low, the customer service was personable and helpful and the benefits at the time were great. My associated debit cards had rewards on them and the interest was high compared to any other bank.

About 5 years ago customer service started going down hill. Random fees started showing up (and again I worked in banking so I always made sure to read the fine print, this wasn't a case of me just not knowing). I'd contact their customer service for a variety of reasons and suddenly the formerly helpful and friendly staff was cold, nasty and not interested in helping anyone. I had set up my car insurance to take monthly automatic drafts from my associated USAA checking account and not had an issue for ears about that. Several years ago the draft didn't come out despite there being enough money in the account. I was not notified that the draft did not come out, a month or so later I got a notice in the mail that my car insurance had been completely cancelled, and I owed xyz amount. Despite hours going in circles with customer service no one could tell me why they did not notify me, as a 10 years customer of the bank on either end that there was an issue with the draft out of the same bank, and how it was legal to cancel my car insurance without any sort of warning.

Shortly after I started having issues with my credit cards also through USAA, the interest rate went up to something like 45% despite not missing payments and were eventually closed down. Anytime I went in to pay any of this the website directed me back and said they could not accept payment or there was a glitch.

After several years of putting up with this I eventually left and stopped recommending USAA to friends and family.
