User AdeleDannels suggests opening a brokerage account if you can’t manage to open a regular checking account due to bad credit. Another user Gavin thinks that his E*TRADE experience has been good so far.
Etrade has been excellent overall. The user interface is intuitive and straight-forward. It is simple and free to move funds among accounts. It has a simple bill-pay system, their investing and trading offerings and platforms are easy to use and are as good as or better than competitors’…
Mike P, however, hasn’t been very satisfied with his service.
I bought into the E*trade world of one-stop shopping. I did Employee Stock, Stock, IRA, Saving, Checking. Nearly every transaction performed over the 2 years [resulted in a] problem that took several contacts with customer service to get resolved… I spent a lot of time researching exactly why something went wrong so I wouldn’t do it again… The accounts were presented in a single screen but it was like dealing with different companies when transferring money between them or trying to work on a service issue. I will never use them again.
