    In terms of service, you cannot do anything online. On every other bank, you can message someone online and get a quick response. You need to call Synchrony and speak with someone in the Philippines. Nice folks, but I don't want them handling my banking info! To boot, you cannot turn off paper statements. Even the people in the Philippines cannot do that for you. Pick any other bank from this list and you'll be better off!

    Synchrony is the only thing left over from the old GE. Here in Stamford, CT, you will see their building on Long Ridge Road where GE used to be. It is like a shit stain, except Synchrony today never would have made GE proud.

    I cannot overstate how incompetent Synchrony is. Even though I called multiple times before my CD was coming due to indicate that I didn't want it to autorenew, they autorenewed it. This could only have been changed by phone. It cannot be done online or by email. I was assured multiple times that it had been done, and now I am stuck with $250000 in a one year CD at 0.50%. This is a crime and an outrage.

    This bank is solid and it is consistent. It may not have all of the bells and whistles and the apps and everything but the rate is always competitive.

    Very disappointed that I needed to call and deal with a CSR for 40 minutes in order to stop a CD from autorenewing. Every other major online bank enables this selection online and who on earth has 40 minutes to waste with this nonsense? Terrible customer service.
