Visa Card Deception

Went to PNC because they handled Freddie MAC/Fannie Mae Mortgages -

OK - banking officer suggested I apply for a VISA card because new home - expenses - 12 mos. interest free - OK !! I set up - paid for some expenses - Busy - Set up Auto Pay for min. payment was going to pay off whole thing within 12 mos. - Found out even though I didn't receive any statements or notice - THAT THEY WERE CHARGING ME INTEREST ON A PURCHASE FROM THE 6TH MONTH - Upon Calling I got the Snotty Remark I should have read the very clear disclosure statement - I said I was sold the CARD - during the hectic moving process and was told it would be 12 mos. interest free - that I didn't feel I had to sit down and read a 20 page fine print contract if the Financial Rep at the bank said it would be 12 mos. interest free - (turns out 12 mos. interest free on a Transfer - 6 mos on purchase) - said having an MBA - from an Ivy League School - I could read the contract - but if I ask and am told it's 12 mos. interest free - and I'm approached during a busy time like moving - I would assume I could trust the Verbal Explanation - PNC CUSTOMER SERVICE REP. AND SUPERVISOR - said read the Disclosure - THIS BANK IS FOR THE BIRDS - I suggested the least they could do is offer some form of credit - and my intent to avoid paying 23 percent APR was clear that when I found out for the first time their interest I PAID THE WHOLE BALANCE OFF IMMEDIATELY -

No Dice - I JUST SAID FINE - I'M GOING TO WRITE MY ELECTED OFFICIALS AND POST ALL OVER ABOUT THEIR LITTLE SCAM - AND SNOTTY - BAD ATTITUDE - Probably - Just Told - This is the Line - You Give Customers if you want to Keep Your Job ! A pity but that's what seems to be common place business practice - you loose a couple of customers and you rope another 5 in!!! JUST DOING MY BIT TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM GETTING ROPED! CAVEAT EMPTOR!

Wonderful People and Very Helpful

First, I just want to say that most people who post in these things have had issues with overdrawn accounts from their own mistakes, or are dealing with issues that come up in any bank (there are a lot of government regulation and practices that have to be followed) and these people tend to be angry from an isolated experience and want to vent.

I would like to just say that the PNC branch I go to in my neighborhood is wonderful. They all know my name, they are very friendly, and I call them when I have issues and they help me take care of things or answer questions for me. I am not unrealistic in my expectations, and am very pleased that they offer a rewards system for checking (Points) that most banks don't do anymore.

They don't charge me fees if I just overdraw my account a little (I think they girl said less than $5) and they do still offer free checking with no minimum balance and they don't charge for PNC atms, statements, or other little things. In fact, since I have a direct deposit into my checking I actually even get all my non-pnc atm fees refunded! I think I also get free checks on my account too. My bank before PNC charged me for everything. I have the virtual wallet account and it is much more interactive then my old bank's (Chase) online banking. I can also make deposits from my phone, which is very nice considering I travel a lot.

Overall, I think people need to remember that banks are a business, but some do it better than others. PNC doesn't nickle and dime me to death and they offer superior products like virtual wallet. I also know I can get help from my local branch really easily. I really appreciate that fact.

Good Bank, Better People

After having a business account at PNC for several years, we finally opened a personal account with PNC. Kelly in Taneytown was very helpful in getting our new account opened. She pointed out the many benefits of having an account with PNC (all of which were not offered by our previous bank). She answered all my questions about getting the account started and I know she would answer any I have in the future.

Looking forward to a long banking relationship with PNC! Wondering why we didn't pursue this sooner.
