Terrible, Horrible, Worst Bank Ever. You'd have better luck with your money stuffing it in your closet.

Ever since I opened an account with this organization, I have been hit with ridiculous fees. If you don't touch your money, you get charged with an inactivity fee of some 3 dollar amount or such. Now, ACTIVITY fee of $75 dollars. Too little spending, too much spending ALL RESULT IN YOU PAYING THE BANK MONEY. The interest rate is abysmal and will never cover the cost of my fee's that I have paid ($78) even with over 10,000 in the account. I am in no way a bad banker, Always on time with payments and no overdraft or late fees in my entire life. This bank is crap, to put it lightly, and if you want to keep your money, put it elsewhere. Don't ever trust this bank. People that work there are nice enough but the corporation and the operation of the company is CRAP. Don't waste your time or money on this piece of garbage.

BOA to BBT Very Easy

My husband and I have been with BOA for several years. Our branch was purchased by another bank that started off on the wrong foot. So, we decided to move our banking relationship to BB&T. The sign-up online was very easy and straight forward. We opted to go into one of the many branches near our home to make our opening deposit. We were greeted as soon as we walked through the door. They were friendly and professional. The young lady who waited on us was well-trained and efficient. After looking at all the negative reviews, we came home (a 3 minute trip) and immediately checked our account online and the deposits were right and available. I went to order our checks online, but where it was a new account, we had to call the branch. The young lady, again, was pleasant, polite, and more than willing to help us. She took our check order and gave me the price of the checks.

Now, I see a lot of bad reviews because someone didn't pay their mortgage for 4 months and were sent to foreclosure and people and their overdrafts. If people would use a little common sense, they would know that if you don't pay your mortgage, you lose your house and if you make purchases on your debit card and write checks and don't have the funds to cover it, you will be charged a fee. Don't do something stupid and then complain when you get charged a fee or lose your home. All the fees I saw are perfectly reasonable and should serve as a deterrent from bouncing checks and making purchases without the funds to cover them.

My husband and I are your average middle class couple with three kids in college. So, we aren't rich by any means. So, the theory that BB&T caters to rich people doesn't hold water. The median income in our area is $32,000/year (we make more than that) and BB&T has most of the banking business for people in our area. We were treated like the most important customers they had waited on all day. So, I think this is going to be a pleasant banking experience.

The worst bank ever!

This bank is horrible. Today will be my last day using this bank. I made a $20 cash deposit on Tuesday. They held my CASH deposit until Wednesday night and then ran a check for $10 check Wednesday night before posting my deposit. Which of course caused a NFS fee of $36. When I called the customer service line and got Amy she said and I quote: "Too bad. That is our policy and I can't help you."
