I love these guys, mostly.

PerkStreet was advertising on the radio just as my old bank, Washington Mutual, was being assimilated in to Chase. I hate Chase. The shift to PerkStreet was quite smooth. When I call them, a human is are always there and is always helpful. I was not happy when they dropped the debit card rebate from 2% to 1% but even at 1% it is better than any local bank. Online access and bill pay are excellent.

Absolutely the best banking experience we've ever had!

Switching from a traditional brick-and-mortar bank to PerkStreet was different at first, but now that it's been about a year and a half... I wish I had known sooner!

We earned more than $400 in Perks last year, compared to the 0.01 return with the "big bank" made us so much happier.

I wondered what the customer service experience would be like - and we've called them a few times for various reasons. Each time I felt like the employee TRULY cared about helping us and appreciated our business. That's the first time I felt that with our personal banking. PerkStreet is OUTSTANDING!

A Bank That's Focused On My Financial Success

Even after the recent change in perks and dropping the 2% cash back option, perkstreet is still the best bank by far! They made the change to help 90% of their customers, and still have the best deal when it comes to earning cash back with a debit card. I love their customer services, friendliness, response time to questions and all the other perks that come with this bank. They don't nickel and dime me, and are truly interested in my personal financial success.
