1. The online optimizer is a night mare.
2. People at the branch have no clue regardless of what you ask them and send you in the wrong direction all the time.
3 FEEEEES - incredible $30 for wires out 15 for wires in, plus maintenance fees per check fees
Hsbc gave me 5 wires free, no charge for checks(!) citi bank is much cheaper
Got online banking with citi - only now I understand what a dinosaur Capital one is!!!
The online customer support is key. I hate calling on the phone and waiting hours to get in contact with a person. With online chat i wait 3 minutes max.
I do computer security for a living. I have a car loan through capital one and just the one account i have their security is appalling, their understanding of corporate networking is worse. Migrating people to a new site with no notice and worse, no links from the old site to the new. Forcing me to call customer service to fix my site.
I get on the phone and they can only identify me by my social, sorry, i know better than to give that over the phone, if you want my car payment you'll have to find a different way to identify me. Unfortunately they don't allow me enough characters to list all the problems i've had and found with their broken system, for example taking a month and a half before i could make my first payment because they were setting up my account then trying to charge me a late fee. I knew nothing about capitalone before this car loan, i'm glad i didn't set up a real bank account with them now.
