I Like Their Calls About My Late Payments. Saved My Credit Rating!

I have repeatedly missed my car payment dates. They call my cell, mention the problem, and I say pay it. I finally got my own bank to start making automatic payments for this reason, so the calls should stop. Given all the $10 or see fees each late period, I paid about $100 in late fees this year. That is my fault. I consider the fees a bargain. Someone had to call me, and that service costs money. Often, these callers get nowhere, so I must unfortunately but realistically account for that low efficiency in what I pay as a late fee. I appreciate the calls. It's much better than my forgetting until I end up with my payments so overdue they get reported to credit agencies. My credit score is over 820. If not for their calls, I would forget and it would be much lower. I don't recall getting calls when I missed payments for anything. For me, it's a win-win. Maybe other banks do that, but I'm just glad they do it. Saved my credit score. I'm thinking of buying a house. How much is the score worth to me? A lot! I do wish I could have paid online to their bank directly from mine without an account at their bank, but such is life.

NO HELP WHEN YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

Posted by: DAPPER44 | Sep 15, 2012

I have been banking at my branch for over 30 or so years. Valley purchased Prospect Park Savings many years ago.The branch was a pleasure to deal with, because people at the branch, could solve a problem if you had one.I recently ran into a problem with one of my accounts that they changed the monthy balance from $500.00 to $999.00.No notices were sent out by the bank for this change and since they stopped sending out hard copies every month I was charged a $25.00 service charge for this change in bank policy.The 2 girls at my branch were no help at all in solving this problem.After numerous calls to customer service I was able to talk to a supervisor who was able to reverse the charge and get me back on getting a hard copy of my statements every month. The tellers are great people,but have no use for the 2 so-called branch managers.

Wasn't Pleased

Out of date technology and rude customer service for my car loan.

Horrible Bank - Stay Away

Posted by: menio67 | Sep 18, 2011

Last year I opened up an account with Valley National in Landing, NJ.  I had been with TD Bank/Commerce Bank for years prior, but moved to Blairstown last year and wanted a bank close by my work and new home, since there were no local branches of TD Bank nearby.  Well, I could not believe the horrible service I would get from Valley National!  They were not honest about the funds availability schedule when I opened my account, and held on to my money for an excessive amount of time, even though the checks had already cleared.  When I complained to the branch, they were not even apologetic that it was not made clear to me when opening the account, and were visibly annoyed that I had the nerve to complain.  They assured me that if I had funds deposited via cash or direct deposit, the money would not be held unavailable like that.  So, I had my child support direct deposited into their bank.  Well, guess what?  They lied again!  A deposit that was made on 9/8 from child support via direct deposit still has HALF of the funds not available!  That is totally unacceptable!  I NEVER had any issues with funds availability with TD Banik or any other bank I have ever dealt with in my life.  I guess customer service is not a priority in this area--I can't believe that such an awful bank can even stay in business.  Then again, when I pass the Fredon branch or the Blairstown branch, I rarely ever see cars in the parking lot.  Maybe that says something.  Anyway...I plan to have my money direct deposited elsewhere...there HAS to be a better local bank than Valley National.  I've heard First Hope Bank is good, I may try them and see.  I can't imagine the service can be any worse than what I've gotten with Valley National.
