    Been a customer for a couple of years now with interesting checking, been a happy customer. They give you a $10 reimbursement on atm fees per statement cycle. They pay you to leave your money there currently 15k+ at 0.25%, though I wish they would increase it to at least 0.50%+ same as Sofi.

    ally is still the gold standard in online banking, but the rate needs to get more competitive and the wait to speak to someone on the phone is just ridiculous.

  • November 5, 2021 |

    I opened an interest checking account with Ally after reading all the glowing comments online. My first experience with Ally was anything but glowing. The customer rep tried to charge me $15 for a debit card. When I challenged him on the charge and told him debit cards were free he backtracked and told me the charge was for expedited shipping. After I told him several times to use free standard delivery, even if it was by Pony Express, I still received my debit card via expedited delivery and was charged $15. I eventually received a refund after calling customer service to complain. This never should have happened in the first place. I guess the moral of my story is never believe everything you read.

    I have been a customer for years and have never had a bad experience. These days I really appreciate how they are keeping their savings rates competitive. .8% is lousy, but it is very competitive.

    "keeping their savings rate competitive" - they aren't.

    Online Savings Rates

    The 11 month no penalty cd is an obvious choice here. You are guaranteed a rate over that time and have free access to your money. Plus, they gave me a 5% bonus for being a long time customer (call them) and that made the rate the same as the savings rate today. CON: Hold times to reach a representative on the phone are too long!
