I've been a customer with 5/3rd for over 10 years and the quality of their banking services and consistently gone downhill. Technologically they are lacking many of the benefits you will find with other banking institutions. And the fees - there is a fee for everything! All of the customer service call centers are overseas too - good lucking speaking to someone who you can understand! The deal breaker was forcing me into a checking account with a monthly maintenance fee! I even stopped into a local branch and talked to a rep and she was completely unsympathetic and did absolutely NOTHING to retain me as a customer. I would shop around for a better bank or CU.
I am currently a 5/3 account holder. My complaint about Fifth Third Bank is to detailed to post but I will say this. When I read how many customer complaints they own and the One Star (out of five star) rating they have, I can understand why.
As long as no problem exists with your account you will not have a problem 5/3. Just have a problem with your account and you will find out poor the 5/3 really is.
Bank at 5/3 at your own risk. You've been warned.
5th 3rds brokerage guy in Holland MI [Redacted] buffaloed me into an annuity that he said made 10% non compounding yearly.With some research I found out that was more like 3% after fees. They call me in for a sit down with one of their weary demoralized human whipping posts for the purpose of scrambling my accounts to no real benefit to me every 3 years or so.
