FYI to people going on vacation. PEOPLES UNITED BANK can and did cancel my ATM card without cause.. Long story, short...they sent mail notification to my house 2000 miles away about a possible fraud. No phone call.I called them, they still would not reinstate the card, I faxed them my info as they requested, they promised to overnite a card, it was sent regular mail and arrived in Lexington, Ky after I had left. So, unable to obtain cash had to shorten my trip and drive home, no card still. Imagine it happening to you, maybe overseas....how screwed would you be. I am SWITCHING BANKS , you may want to do the same.
I have been a customer of People's bank for almost ten years now. I have a commercial account for my local painting business. My mother has held a personal checking and savings account for much longer.
I have had nothing but good experiences dealing with this bank. I love that the hours and that it is open 7 days a week! I have been spending more time in Florida now and my experiences here with banks, such as Wachovia, have been terrible.
I wish that People's had branches in the Tampa Bay area!
I have been a customer of People's bank for over 10 years, they used to be a very good bank, they had good rates , accurate statements and nice office hours.
Since they changed to their new system, they made 2 mistakes on my statement.
1. I created a CD a few months ago, they doubled the amount on my CD.
2. I closed a different CD a quite while ago, they left a dollar in my CD, I continue getting a renew letter to renew it. After I finally closed it, they did not rollover interest rate, I still got a letter once a month to ask me to renew it.
3. Their new phone system is not better than the old one, finally I used to it.
