I never thought I would find a bank worse than B of A but Fifth Third wins hands down. I initiated a transfer on 7/24 which had not gone through by 7/31. I went in and closed the account. They underpaid me by $2003. I called their main number and they said I have to go back to the branch to get it fixed. I now have to wait another week ill my next day off. Customer service is not in their vocabulary.
For many years I had my accounts with MB financial which was taken over by 5/3 Bank.My 2 jumbo CD'S with 1.8% interest matured in February and WITHOUT any notice, my knowledge and my approval bank renewed them for 3 months with interest of 0.05%. I have learned about that ILLEGA ACT on June 3rd when 5/3Bank has informed me that both accounts will mature. I WAS SHOCKED. My jumbo accounts with this 0.05% earned for ME me about 112$ and for MB financial about 1052$. AN UNBELIEVABLE TEFT BY THE BANK.On June 3d I did complain at 5/3 bank and with the help of Mrs. Psirogianis, Mr.Kukla and Mr.Stathis that former banks illegality was corrected and proper interest was credited to my CD'S. I would like to thank all of them for their help and protection of their customer rights.Thank you 5/3 bank.You are kind of bank customers should have. I am giving you 6 stars review Vladimir Skul M.D.,retired
Was promised 2% for a year on a money market account. After 3 months of the run-around I am moving my money elsewhere. That's what I was promised that's what I should get. Losing interest money while fighting the fight Bye Bye
I opened a savings account @ a 1st Charter bank 20 years ago, but about 10 years ago 5th 3rd "acquired" all the 1st Charter branches. Things stayed pretty much the same & most of the 1st Charter employees stayed on, but recently 5th 3rd has installed a new computer system & I got nailed with fees I've never seen before. No notice of new fees either -- out of the blue over $50 was deducted from my account in fees that bank employees have not been able to explain. Speaking with an attorney I've worked with I commented, "due process begins with notice" & he replied, "EVERYTHING begins with notice." He's right & I mentioned that to the branch manager, who credited back $50 of the fees -- he said that was the limit of what he could do & he wouldn't be able to do it again. I hate to close an account I've had for 20 years, but 5th 3rd's unexplained fees will probably force me to.
This bank is dishonest!!! I went into the local branch to open up a savings where my money is safe over long period of time. The branch manager said they have a savings account like that. We went ahead with the process thinking that I do not have to look at my account because my money is not going anywhere. After two years, I looked at my savings account statement and see $100 missing. They opened up a relationship savings where if you do not use the account over a time period, they take out a monthly fee. This is NOT what I agreed upon!! They will take your money secretly!!! DO NOT use Fifth Third!! Warning!!!
Two of my kids had small savings accounts with 5th/3rd. The bank closed out their account without telling us and now we are having a hard time getting the money back. I will never bank with fifth third bank ever! I understand closing accounts that have been inactive but GIVE NOTIFICATION!!!!
I have had a savings account with Fifth Third Bank for a few years now and it adequately meets my needs. It doesn't give the best return on investment but having multiple branches around I can access is a definite plus. Their online access is second to none though, so you can easily keep track of your savings and makes changes and withdrawals as needed. Every bank should endeavor to have an online experience like the one Fifth Third has. If you need a savings account that gives a halfway decent return and is convenient, this is the place to go. If you are only looking to get the highest interest rate possible, you can definitely find better elsewhere.
I have had a Fifth Third goal setter savings account for about five years now, I opened it when I opened my checking account with Fifth Third. I've always had great service with this bank. There is no service charge on this account because I also have the checking account with Fifth Third (but it's only $5 a month if you don't). The interest rate is fair for a savings account at .03%. You also get an interest bonus (just once) when you reach your set goal--that's pretty generous, I think. Overall I very much enjoy my experience with this bank and would recommend them to a friend.
I have the goal setting savings account with fifth third bank and as a college student I would have to say it is great! There are no monthly fees and it pretty much came with opening my checking account with them. The goal setting savings account is set up so that even when you transfer money into that account you will not be able to just spend it, you will not be able to just transfer it back to your checking account. In order to get it out you will have to go to the fifth third bank. Which is fine with me that way I can not actually spend what I am supposed to be saving since I am so lazy to go to the bank! This is a great savings account for me and I definitely recommend it to more than just college students.
I give the company an overall rating of three stars because of the current problem I have been having with my bank, and the lack of a simple resolution. Instead of having a single savings account of my own, I have a shared savings account with my parents, which I do not want. Apparently, due to this setup, the bank seems to have a difficult problem with separating the two and require some sort of special process to diffuse them. Also, the bank always messes up my transfers of my checking to savings account--taking money from the wrong sources and inputting them in the wrong bank accounts. This could also be due to our many names on a single/multiple accounts.
