I have been with this bank for four years and let me tell you they have never been there for me! First they lost my signature card so i started geting backup withholding, i called the irs and they told me they never authorized my bank to take backup withholding.... Guess what it took them two years to correct the problem. Next i had my car insurance through them and instead of it going down (never got a ticket or accident since using them) it went up!
Their excuse, texas changed their requirements, but after two years i still should have seen a decrease. Next, i applied for a loan as a private (lowest rank in the army) and of course i was denied, but four years later with a perfect banking record and stable accounts and they still denied me! They won't approve me for a credit card nor any type of loans, how am i supposed to buy a home or build credit when my own bank of four years won't even give me a chance!
Oh and the icing on the cake, i got back from a deployment and needed to buy a livingroom set that went over their spending cap, i called to lift my limit and the rep told me that maybe i should just wait until tomorrow and that it wasn't her job to give me access to my money! So, now i am searching for a new bank and i am super excited to take my money out of their bank!
I have been a customer of USAA for 10 years and have always received great service. However, recently I made a deposit of a check that I wasn't sure was good. Despite this I made several calls to customer service to see if the funds had cleared and been verified. On the 6th day after the deposit I called again and was told that the funds had cleared and had been verified. Based on this information I made a transaction using some of the funds from the deposited check. Well, the check bounced the very next day. USAA charged me a fee and took the money from the account. Charging me a fee, fine I get that, but I only used some of the money AFTER contacting customer service. I trusted the information I was given and it has cost me. After several weeks of getting the run around from the executive resolution department I was told that the bank wasn't going to do anything to correct this situation. The rep I spoke with said the other resolution team members should not have led me to believe this would be taken care of and will be "counseled". I have never had a reason to believe that information given to me from customer service representatives isn't accurate. Now I know, you can't trust anything and that USAA will not stand behind their customers when customer service representatives give them wrong information. The entire situation has been an expensive pill to swallow.
I've been banking with USAA for years and never pass up an opportunity to praise them. Great customer service, great rates (on everything but savings accounts), and always a great experience.
