Unreliable

First bad experience: I was doing late night online Christmas shopping and could not log on to my banking to transfer funds. I called ally and was told that they were doing a system update and all services were offline for 6 hours. I talked to a supervisor and asked why they didn't notify their customers that they would be down and he just didn't know.

Second bad experience: I deposited a $500 and $400 check using the banking app. It took 2 days to appear in my balance. But my available balance was short $700. I asked customer service why and they said that they wait an additional 3-4 days to make sure the checks clear. It clearly says in the Q&A that your deposit will be "available" the next business day after it is approved.

Great bank, but deposits take forever to post

I've used Ally for several years. I love that they do not charge a ton of fees, and they reimburse ATM fees charged by other banks. However, the only way to deposit is by either an eCheck or mailing in a check. Their website advertises next day availability, however I have never had an eCheck deposit post in that time frame. They always take a week. According to them, this is because my account has too many over drafts. I've had two in the past year, while waiting for a deposit to post. They're awesome if you direct deposit everything, but check deposits, try to avoid them if you can.

Left hand does not know what the right hand is doing....

Tried to transfer $250K into Ally. They transferred it TWICE. Overdrew me at my bank. Took DAYS to get straight while my money did not earn interest. Excuses, excuses, excuses.....don't think they'll get any of my business again.
