MyBankTracker rated BB&T based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
There's a fee for everything. They started charging me $10 a month because I didn't have $1000 in my account constantly. They charged me $2 for calling customer service! You can't do anything on BBT.com except look at your balance and transfer funds between BBT accounts. Everything else that you want to do - e.g. add an external account to transfer funds - they make you download a form and mail it in. It's absolutely ridiculous and their customer service is not helpful at all.
I tried to close my checking account and they made me wait for it to get to a $0 balance - understandable. The next day I got charged $10 for having a low balance, which made it ping my overdraft and pull $100 from my credit card - $12.50 fee for that transaction. So then I had to transfer money again to get it back to $0 balance. After finally doing that, I called in to cancel the account. They said it was done. I checked back a couple days later and my account was still open because they charged me $2 for calling customer service - which caused my overdraft to ping again! Another $12.50 fee and $100 out of my credit card.
I called back pretty ticked so they gave me my $14.50 back and closed the account. Terrible, terrible experience and I still haven't been able to add an external account to pay my credit card bill online. I'm done with this!
I recently went to change an address for my account for my business. I had the worst service of my life. Never do business with salma. She totally ignores the current customer but focuses only on who's next in line. What? Is the current customer not important? After talking trying to tell her what to do she gets the idea briefly and keeps looking to see who is next. I understand they are busy and rushing but its not an excuse to treat their current customers with disrespectful manners.
We have been banking with BB&T for several years & we were banking at this branch when it was Bank of Louisville. Several of the employees at this branch have worked there for several years. It is nice when you can come into a branch & they know your name.
Thanks to all of you at Hikes Point Branch!
