    Online Savings Rates

    I was very disappointed to learn that Marcus quietly began offering much higher rates to aarp members earlier this year. I am in that demographic and a Marcus customer but I cannot take advantage of the rate because I am not a member? It is also age discrimination.

    Online Savings Rates

    My own experience with Marcus was terrible. I opened the account, they failed to properly track the opening deposit, representative blamed me for the failure and I lost weeks of interest. I was told a rep would call me to discuss and that hasn't happened. Not worth the time or aggravation.

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    Goldman Sachs, founded in 1869, launched Marcus: by Goldman Sachs® in 2016. Commonly referred to as simply Marcus, the new consumer bank diversified its savings and loan offerings to retail customers. Until then the bank had operated as an investment bank and trading house using funds primarily from the wholesale market. I hope our host will update the name to avoid any confusion. Searching "Goldman" will not lead one directly to Marcus.

  • June 22, 2020

    I have been very pleased, called on the phone a few weeks ago. Excellent service. Several of the friends signed up as well. Just HOPE the rates stay competitive. WISH not drop from 1.30 to 1.05%
