I absolutely owe key bank everything. And i mean that in all intended gratitude. No one else would open a bank for me after my bankruptcy and lay-off; but key did. In fact they opened a normal checking account and a savings account for me after literally every other major bank denied me. They even called me a couple days later to reassure my fears of it being closed after i opened it and welcomed be to their bank. They're so amazing i literally don't mind having to drive 2 hours to the nearest branch every now and then to make a quick deposit. Every time i go in the tellers are super, the service is fast and i couldn't be happier. Yes, this bank charges fees. But it's a bank; a business. Life isn't free, we shouldn't expect banking to be either, especially in this economy. I only pay $12 a month to have any overage charges i may incur (up to 3, but never had more than one) refunded and i even got $100 just for being a good customer! Come on; this place is awesome. Be smart when you read the rest of the reviews and recognize true consumer error, and angry customers who have truly made a mistake on their own part. I haven't had a problem one with key and i've been with them for a full year now. I had bank of america previously and they literally shut down my accounts about a week after they received notification that i was filing bankruptcy on the credit card i had with them. Nothing else; not the home loan, student loans, etc. Just the credit card and they closed every checking, and savings account my husband and i had. But they sure kept the home loan and student loans just fine. That's a bad bank. Not key.
Key Bank is the worst. I made Deposit with a check. The check was from a local bank a block away. I needed to cover an auto withdrawal happening the following day. I asked "should I go to the other bank, cash the check and deposit cash here?" Key employee said "no" the hold on the funds will be lifted before the auto withdrawal goes through. Fine. Did my due diligence knowing how shady Key is. Didn't matter. $38 stolen in overdraft fee.. How does MY MONEY TAKE DAYS TO BECOME AVAILABLE TO ME, WHEN THE MONEY I SPEND GOES THROUGH IN A BLINK? One word (two words)....as$ hole$
I just closed my checking account that I opened in 1976 when I became an employee of The Cleveland Trust Company (a distant ancestor of the current Key Bank). I won't go into details, but Key Bank's attitude, consistent failure to even appear to want me as a customer have driven me to move 2 business accounts and my personal accounts to another bank.
They simply don't care.
They didn't even ask me WHY I was closing an account that I have used for 39 years.
Today I received notice that I had overdrawn my closed account because they are still charging me fees for a CLOSED account.
There are banks that do want your business. US Bank is one that I can recommend.
It's your money, take it somewhere else.
