Horrible

Every time I call the bank I always get someone from India or the phillipines or wherever I get transferred to. These customer representatives are so rude and hateful when you can understand them. For the most simple questions I always get a very rude answer and no one ever knows what's going on with my auto loan account. I sent an insurance check to be endorsed and I never got it back. When I called about it they had no idea of what I was talking about. So after 3 weeks of of my at being in the shop I had to wait another week for a new check to be issued to myself and the body shop. Thanks ally!

Five stars by any measure

I'm confused about the the three-star rating when most of the reviews give a glowing five-stars - maybe there were a few folks who gave one star and that dragged it down? Anyway, as most people have noted, Ally is clearly the best way to go for online banking; and for those who are put off by the lack of brick-and-mortar locations, try thinking of banking differently. If you own a smartphone and a computer, there is absolutely no reason to "go to the bank"! Everything you might ever need to do can be done online and/or on the phone. Ally's phone reps are terrific - smart and patient, knowledgable about the products, and speak clear English (and possibly Spanish as well - I haven't checked). The no fee ATM feature is for real, and it's so convenient. It's also awfully nice to get nearly 1% interest on your savings account when virtually all the other banks give you next to nothing (like .005% or some nonsense, which is effectively zero). You even earn a bit on your checking account. No minimum balances, great online and mobile banking interfaces, great customer service: a winning formula, to be sure.

VeryDisappointed

Nothing but problems from day one. I should have known better when Ally screwed up the opening of my account by losing half my paperwork. I figured it was just an honest mistake. Well it's been nothing but problems and I haven't even had the account for a year. I used the smartphone app to deposit a check a few months ago. It was a little more than six months old. No good. Ally said they can't deposit checks over 6 months. Fine. Now I try to deposit a check from my sister. She didn't date the check. I deposit it and get an email a day later saying it was refused BUT it doesn't say it was because it was missing the date. So, I call Ally and ask the rep, if my check is missing the date, will it be rejected? He said no, it should not be a problem. So, I deposit it again using the app and again I get an email saying your check has been rejected because traveler checks, money orders and postal money orders have to be mailed in. Did I mention that this is a personal check from my sister for $30? So, I call up Ally, explain my story to the rep. and she's very sympathetic, but can't help me. I get transferred to Antonio in Tech support. He confirms:

1. The check was rejected because it had no date

2. Mailing it in to Ally wouldn't make a difference

3. The rejection email is very generic (no kidding!)

I've had more frustration with this Ally account in 10 months than I've had in 30 years of having a bank account.

Now back to my local bank where I get a few pennies less in interest but they do deposit my checks.

I closed my account. It's clear to me that wanting to be a great bank and being a great bank are not the same.
