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.…show more
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!!!…show more
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.…show more
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.…show more
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.…show more
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.…show more
I have a savings account at Fifth Third Bank because that is also where I have my checking account. I'm not really at a point in life where I'm a habitual saver, so I basically just deposit funds in here in small amounts, when I have extra to do so. To me, a savings account is simply a place to stash my cash so that I don't touch it when I feel compelled to be less than totally responsible with my money. To that end, this savings account is suitable for my needs. It is simple and bare bones. What more do I need?…show more
I have the fifth third 529 savings account. I also have another savings account, a checking account, and a credit card with them so this is just out of necessity. Very basic savings account, nothing too spectacular about it. I don't keep more than 5000 dollars in this account, so my interest rate hasn't doubled yet. I'd recommend other accounts before this one, but there's nothing wrong with it either.
