Ally is the first bank in over 20 years that has far exceeded my expectations. Their rates are higher. Their customer service is far better than most banks. You can always get a live voice or online chat when you need it. Staff is always friendly. Your problems are resolved. You get reimbursements for ATM fees. Their online services are easy to use. Their overdraft fees are far lower than ANY other bank that I know of. And they have very flexible options for CDs and money markets. The list goes on and on. I would recommend Ally versus any other bank that I have used.
When my old bank raised my requirement/fees i decided to look around for better options. I researched several banks and ally was by far the best choice. All my interactions with ally have been positive, good customer service, easy bill pay and money transfers. Now, every month i look at my interest and see i am getting paid in dollars instead of pennies. When asked about banking, i always recommend Ally.
Recently they have started asking strange questions like which street is closest to you, who among the persons listed below do you know, and so on. These are totally ridiculous and irrelevant questions and why can't they keep the validation to the relevant information in their systems? How would one know every street in the metropolis? ( i googled those streets and some of them are 40 miles away). How do you know if i know the person or not and if you do why are you preying on my privacy. Who gave you authority and access to do searches on me? I am very frustrated customer and very annoyed with ally bank! This is totally unacceptable and needs to stop.
