Most horrific banking experience. Wanted to cancel my saving account and called them zillion of times. First of all, they opened my account without telling me that there will be $12 maintenance fee/month. After being charged for a couple of months, I called them to cancel it. Women working there are out-of-their mind. They always came up with hundreds of reasons for not being able to cancel my account (like charges suddenly appeared at the same exact time in the middle of the month when I wanted to cancel my account). Guys working there are really racists and sketchy. They are so afraid to introduce themselves by their last names. I talked to this George guy who refused to tell me his last name while he repeatedly told me that he has my last name differently on-file. Made me sound like I don't know the root of my family. Every time, I called these people, they were more concerned about asking my mailing address precisely down to the zip code (which I am pretty sure they could look it up if they have a brain or some sense of being a human) to deliver a piece of useless confirmation (which I am very sure that they could deliver by email). Overall, they are genuinely more concerned about where I live and my ethnicity rather than offering me some professional help. Overall, a group of very sketchy, racist, unprofessional people working at the bank.…read more
I opened a Bank of America checking account in high school, and was able to maintain the same account throughout college with no monthly fees. When I graduated college, Bank of America made me switch my student account for a normal account, which sadly included monthly fees. They had a promotion at the time that if you opened a savings account at the same time, and had a set monthly transfer of at least $25 from your checking to your savings account then you could avoid monthly fees. Obviously, I opened up a savings account that day. The things I like about my savings account are that I can transfer immediately between my checking and savings and that there are no transfer fees between my accounts. The interest rate is low though, and I know that I should be investing this money rather than just saving it, especially at my age. This savings account is okay, but there are definitely better options out there.…read more
None of these banks offer a decent rate on CDs MMA's and definetly not on Savings Accounts. Third Federal almost always offers better rates than any bank. One should also consider investing in Dividend paying stocks using a DRIP.
Bank of America has been a great bank for me. I have been a customer for over 20 years. I started with a basic checking account years ago and have now moved onto the bigger and better accounts. I could not be happier with this bank and the savings account! I’m really happy with the higher interest rates, and as long as you keep enough money in the bank, then there are no monthly service fees. I couldn’t be happier with free banking! The customer service here is by far better than any other bank I have used in the past. I will be a forever customer.…read more
It's middle of the road. I started out with a student account. That was great because there was no fees and I didn't have to meet minimums. Once that ended I had to have so over $2500 or transfer money every month and that got a little tedious. This account doesn't really earn any tangible money in interest. Even over $15000 in the bank, I’m getting less than a quarter of a dollar per month. The service of the bank was the only saving grace because I could use the mobile app and there are always branches near me to help with any issue. Anytime I had a problem it was resolved with a phone call in a few days.…read more
I like my Bank of America regular savings accounts because I can use the linked checking account to save money easily. I have the "keep the change" monies going in directly from my checking account each month. I also like having my savings account set up to cover any accidents that might occur on my checking account with an overdraft protection. This actually did come in handy once, when a store clerk double rang my card and caused me to go into the red in my checking, my savings account had enough in it to cover it. The main thing I do not like about that is how much money they charge for you being able to use your own money to do this. This was 25 dollars it cost me and I thought that was highway robbery. It is what it is, other than that I really like my account. I would say that if they raise that rate much more, I would consider moving my account but for now since I don't plan on using overdraft protection much, It is okay.…read more
Had a terrible experience with this savings account. First, the "keep the change" feature is almost impossible to deactivate since you have to talk to customer service and it takes really long to get transferred to a human. Second, because I kept getting money deposited in there and I can't afford to save right now, I would transfer the money back to my checking once it reached 30 dollars or more. Well, turns out they charge you after your third transaction so I ended up paying $18 dollars in fees from using it too much. Needless to say, I am no longer a bank of america customer.…read more
I've had this savings account for a few years now; I opened mine in college. It's an ok savings account. Because I'm young and broke all the time, I set up the service where your overdrafts come from your savings, which is of course a whole lot better than paying $35 for each separate overdrafted transaction. B of A is also everywhere so it's a very convenient bank to have while traveling. I'd switch to a credit union, though, if there were some more close by, because I've heard they're less evil than giant banks. Either way I suppose it doesn't really matter, since an individual can't change much is the vast consumer wasteland that is the United States. I also like that I can deposit checks without an envelope.…read more
I had a very positive experience with my Savings account with Bank of America. The application process was painless. The gentleman who assisted me was very friendly and knew every answer to all my many question. He fully explained everything I needed to know and even what I didn't want to know. I felt secure and safe. I would highly recommend going through Bank of America for your savings needs! Over the years I have grown my investments and felt very confident that everything will be taken care of. If you ever have any questions, they are either a phone call or quick office visit away. No regrets! Thank you Bank of America!…read more
I have had a Bank of America Savings Account for about 12 years. In general it has served me well. I get monthly account summaries like clockwork and whenever I have had any questions their customer service representatives have been extremely helpful. Bank of America has transformed with the times, having apps and text features which make it much easier to access my accounts. These innovative things have truly helped keep the bank current and have assisted in making customers like myself happy. I have never had an issue with the bank policies and I expect I will continue to have a happy relationship with Bank of America for a long time.…read more
I have had the Bank of America Savings Account for over ten years now. Overall, I like it. It is easy to transfer money to and from my other Bank of America accounts (ie., checking and my credit card). I am not a huge fan of the "Keep the Change" feature in which Bank of America takes your checking account purchases, rounds them up to the nearest dollar, and deposits that amount into your savings account. As a graduate student, there are times when my checking account runs a bit lower than I would like and having to transfer my "Keep the Change" dollars over from my savings account back into my checking account can get tedious.…read more
