MyBankTracker rated Suntrust Bank based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
On discovering that the account we'd held for over five years now has a $25/month fee, I called customer service and arranged for the account to be changed to one that does not incur a fee. While the customer service rep was not overly professional, everything seemed to have been properly taken care of. I received my new debit card a few days later, although my partner did not receive his.
Today, I received a check for the contents of my account, with a check-sized slip of paper stating that it is the "letter to close account". I called customer service, who had to research the issue. I began speaking with the customer service rep at 4:15. At 4:35 she came back on the line to tell me the department that had all the information about what happened and who could take any action had left for the day -- at 4:30. My mortgage payment and several other bills were scheduled to be paid today.
I was told that someone would call me before close of business on Monday and determine if the bank was at fault.
My credit card company charged me hefty fees because of Suntrust. When I did an automatic payment from my checking account which is linked to a larger savings account, the bank posted insufficient funds. What a hassle. Now I have to call Suntrust to find out why this happened and re-pay the credit card company. I am not sure why the Pantops Suntrust branch is so screwed up, but I really love the branches that are further away from my home in town. Only recently (in the last 6 months or so) has this branch gotten competent bank tellers who smile at you and greet you. Devin is the BEST!
This bank is very unprofessional. I went to change my address and the teller tells me I dont stay in pne place for to long.... excuse me I moved after living in a place for two years, and what is it any of her business if I moved every two months. Instead of helping me with my situationshe was being very judgemental and rude.As well me going to change my address was pointless she didn't even change it and my check is goingg to my old address. In the two years I've banked with them I've never had a problem until now. GLAD my account is closed with them
