No compassion for customers

I had an account with GE Capital which is now Synchrony Bank. I have always paid on time for the last year and I have never had a late payment and I always make double payments when I pay. My payment is due on the 27th of each month. I accidentally missed the April 27th payment somehow and when I discovered it, I immediately and promptly paid them. I called them to let them know that this was a huge oversight and I had always paid on time and never missed a payment. They had no compassion and said that they had already reported this to the credit bureaus. I begged them not to do this because it would hurt my credit score to have a late payment and they said it was their policy. I called back to ask how long this would be on my credit and the representative replied "forever". I think this is disgraceful. I could even understand if I had been 10 days past due or even a month but it was just a week and I begged them to reconsider, but they would not.

Easy no hassle setup

Unlike other reviews for this bank, I experienced no issues in setting up my new savings account. I simply completed an on-line application, and utilized an electronic payment verification from an external bank to fund the account. I have called in multiple times (to order deposit slips & make schedule additional transfers) and I have never been put on hold. The only issue I would have with Synchrony is that I would like to have a mobile check deposit option, which I was told they are working on.

Overall Synchrony Bank has provided a great experience and a very competitive interest rate.
