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.
Bank errors have cost me more than $200. 00 which the bank refuses to reimburse me. You are charged if you contact the bank to make inquiries on your account to resolve the matter. "the bank prefers that you physically go into the branch to discuss any issues rather than handling by phone. " very archaic!!! Don't even think of banking with bbt.
The counter at the teller windows is much higher than at other banks (about shoulder height), so that when you transact business it is in open view of other customers. Normally your body would serve to block the view of persons behind you in line - but this arrangement allows others to see as the teller counts out your currency and hands it to you. Not the safest situation.
Routinely takes over two weeks for bill pay to arrive. No help after calling numerous times to resolve problem. "oh well" attitude. Most large banks are also able to send money electronically without huge fees but not BB&T.
