    Was going to open a savings acct ----- after reading the reviews, NO WAY. Don't make it difficult for customers, (or potential customers), to do business with you.

    Just setup a new cd with this bank. The setup was very easy however, their response time is extremely slow. I have left 3 message with no return call. Was planning on putting more funds into the bank but now will not give anything to them at this rate. I cant even get my account number.

    Online CDs 60 Month Rates

    Tried to get them to return a call to set up a CD for a week. Sent multiple emails. No response. If its that hard to put money in their bank I would hate to think of how hard it was to get it out. Hard pass.

    Online Savings Rates

    I retired in 1995 after 20+ years as a small bank president. Everyone should maintain some amount of liquidity and I refer to my MMA @ CFG as my COVID A/C because I opened it in early March, 2020 after tracking their rates for about 3 months. Previously I kept a comfortable sum @ Ally Bank for 5+ years essentially in staggered short term (11-18 months) CDs coupled with an online savings a/c for staging purposes. However, when CD rates became laughable, everything wound up in the savings. The problem with Ally was their rates dropped like a lead balloon and when they hit 1.5% APY I started transferring funds to CFG @ around 1.9%. Of course, by July, 2021, CFG had slowly fallen to .59% (Ally bottomed @ .50%) and held there until February, 2022 when their balloon started to ascend. But CFG's rates are extremely reactive to changes in the Fed Funds Rates which is why one would now think their balloon is filled with helium with a tag along nitro booster when needed. I still keep a little "chump change" @ Ally and I kind of enjoy the emails they send as their hot air balloon struggles to gain altitude. It serves to remind me to check out my CFG MMA. So, last Friday, August 5th when their APY hit 1.6% ... CFG was around 2.25% but now, 4 days later it's up to 2.55% and that's quite a spread. But, I'm readying my seatbelt everyone because we ain't seen noth'in yet! Could we be in for another Jimmy Carter ride to the Fed Funds moon of 19+% ??? And ... BTW: I would have given CFG 4.5 Stars but I had to round it up. No place is, after all, PERFECT.
