DO NOT BANK WITH ALLY.
After four years of automated draft and getting their money on time, when we traded our Buick and Ally got their pay off, they continue to draft our account and a month later still trying to get them to refund our money. Although they are aware of the overdraft, we had to provide a certified bank statement and letter which they are telling me that it will be reviewed in a few days and after ten business days they will issue a check and if we are lucky we may get our money ten days after that, if they feel like it.
Customer service guys are like a robot, and each time there is a different answer.
Do not Bank or finance with ALLY. This bank simply SUCKS.
Very pleased with Ally Bank. It was super simple to set-up a money market account and an interest-bearing checking account, plus I was pleasantly surprised to find out they supply unlimited checks for free.
Now for the clincher! They offer free "bill pay" and they covered my butt when I made a mistake on my first trial run. I accidentally processed more bills than my account balance and they covered the deficit with no "bounced check" fees or penalties. I got a nice email to let me know about this "one-time courtesy" for new users. Thanks Ally!
Note: For those of you using online banking for the 1st time, be aware that a money transfer to Ally Bank from your physical bank is not instantaneous. It takes about 4-5 days. Big "duh" on my part, but now that I know this, I transfer money a week before I activate my monthly payments.
I bought a car and i made a mistake of not checking out this bank before accepting them is my financial institution. Employees are rude, have no knowledge of what they are doing. I can`t wait to get out of it... I will never use them again. I`m thinking in paying off instead of waiting and give them more interest.
