I am a customer of Western Alliance. For those interested, here is a link to their current HYSA. It is ACH in and out only. No wire transfers. So, if your child is kidnapped, and you need to pay the ransom pronto, this ain't for you. Otherwise, enjoy the yield.


Fast Deposit Transfer

Posted by: |

I opened a high yield savings with W.A. through Savebetter.
Transfer was visible and deposited in 2 days, still awaiting for available funds (it has only been 2 business days). The website stated no transfer limitations, I called Wester Alliance, they transferred me to the Savebetter dept, and they verified they do not have a daily/monthly limit for external transfer withdrawals. currently @ 4.23%

Edit. Available funds took 3 business days.

2/10/23 - up to 4.35% I did an external withdrawal transfer and it was deposited into my bank account in 2 days

Western Alliance probably will pull through. Please note in the banking/finance/investing blogs some people seem to believe it could follow down the 2 bad California banks of this year so far. I hope not.

Not As Advertised

Posted by: |

Western Alliance Bank -- Here are some fun facts not presented explicitly during the process of making a deposit. You are not making a deposit to your newly created WAB account. You are moving funds to a SaveBetter.com account with no routing or account numbers, only some internal identification number. WAB does not allow new accounts to be created online, but only at the physical branches. WAB claims that this is being done with their knowledge and apparent consent. Regardless of the actual or perceived safety of this arrangement, I will not trust any organization that encourages the movement of large sums of money without making all of the most important information plainly, explicitly obvious to all users. If they will engage in slight of hand tricks with one thing, they will most assuredly take similar liberties with other things, perhaps even your balance. The high rate is a pretty lure, but the hook is questionable. I have initiated a transfer back to the originating account. Soon we will see how deeply the hook was set.
