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.

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.
I have a checking account and USAA limitless 2.5% cashback VISA credit card account.
The coolest feature about checking account is when you schedule fund transfer from external account to your account, the money is available instantly (I think up to certain amount, $5000?). For example, if I have $1000 on my USAA checking account and schedule a transfer for $1000 from another bank account, the available balance on USAA is $2000 instantly. The $1000 gets debited a few days later from the external bank account.
The 2.5% cashback credit card is no longer available but USAA allowed customers who already had them to keep them. I get cashback so much faster compared to 1% cashback cards.
I love USAA for car insurance and checking account. However, they are not competitive with their savings and certificate of deposits. I have been with them for over thirty years and will remain loyal, I recently have transferred a vast majority of my liquid assets to higher yielding accounts at other more competitive institutions. USAA’s website and App are wonderful.
I've been using USAA banking for years and use ACH deposits from my brick & motor bank to fund the account and pay my bills from USAA. Everything was fine until 2 weeks ago, without notice USAA started to limit my ACH deposits from $5000 to $500 per day, and anything above $500 gets a 5 business day hold. I called customer service and was told there is nothing they can do, but I can wire transfer money without a hold. I'm not going to pay $25 wire transfer fees, so that ends my relationship with USAA banking.
I left the Army on February 16th after given two weeks notice of my discharge. As soon as I knew that I indicated that by filling out USAA's transitioning service members resources. On March 1st I received no more income and since there wasn't any time to apply and be approved for normal VA and financial resources that Veterans receive I applied to several other financial assistance programs since and the only resources we (my family and I) have received was emergency food stamps as I was denied or received no reply for rent or utilities assistance, so my last option was to withdraw my retirement savings to prevent being sent a nonpayment of rent this month as well as paying for utilities and debts I owe. However, when I received this money and tried to deposit it, it was immediately put on hold and only less than 10% of the balance was deposited, which I assumed had a $10,000 deposit limit. Because of these holds, which when I called today to see if they could remove it, they said they couldn't and wouldn't do anything until the hold was removed which is March 16, which by then I will be sent nonpayment of rent this month and allow the landlord the option to begin eviction. I will also have more late fees for returned payments. I chose USAA specifically because I thought they would understand and be sympathetic to my situation since USAA only serves service-members and their families but now it feels like our only relationship between us is for debt collection. These holds also prevent me from preparing to move out of our house this month to attend trade school. I can't afford to wait until the 16th to use my money and because of this I can no longer recommend USAA as The Service-members Bank as my treatment from my transition to civilian life has been a nightmare due to them. I will probably have to go into more debt just to not have my family and I be homeless
