Extremely bad. Took over $78.00 from my account that was inactive for 2 weeks!
First time I found out about the "service charge" was when my account was dormant for 2 weeks. Next thing I new was a debt collector wanted $276.00. When I went to Weatherford branch and discussed with the managers assistant, I found out that they used an overdraw rule on my account that was dormant which bumped the $ balance of my account from +$44 down to a negative -$276.00. What a sorry bank. You would be better off trusting your money in a tin can. Be forewarned this is a vicious money grabbing bank that isn't worth it.

dont know where to begin. hardest web site to navigate! on hold forever if you try to call them. worst app ever. better off keeping your money under your mattress.. if you have over draft protection they dont tell you how much a payment is or when its due they just close the acct with no communication. only way to pay your auto loan on line is your forced to open a checking account, when i got my new car loan they sent out a payment book how 1970s. you have no idea how much is going to interest and principal. if you want a GREAT bank go with Capital One 360 its free and the app and the bank are great even though they dont have any physical banksThank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

I love the fact that I am known when I go into the bank or go thru the drive thru. I am greeted by name before the transaction and then afterwards asked if there is any thing else they may help me with today using my name again. The team works hard to try to make it a personal experience regardless if you go into the bank or just the drive thru. Several times after getting home, I will get a hand written note from the bank president, who I have never met, stating they appreciate me using this particular bank. They let me know they realize it is by my choice as to whether I use them or another branch of a different affiliation. I do not feel I am just another number but a true customer. I really like banking with these people. I use the branch on University Drive in Denton. I hope everyone will be able to experience the same satisfaction as I do with this particular branch.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

If I call this bank three times and get three different people, I get three different answers! If you call customer service, you're ALWAYS on hold for a minimum of 30 minutes waiting for a customer service rep to speak to you and if you're lucky you MIGHT get one that sounds older than 12! I HATE this bank! I've had issues with my business account since the day I opened it! I've been back and forth with a branch manager who completely dropped the ball! I've emailed her, left voice mail messages for her and NOTHING! I HATE this bank! The only reason I don't want to close the account is because we've banked there for over 15 years. If you can avoid opening an account here I say do that because if you EVER need any type of customer service and you're expectations aren't even set that high, trust me, BBVA will go lower than low! I HATE this bank! After typing this, I've decided it is time to move on. I will close my account as soon as possible! I HATE this bank!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

I have had a bank account with them sunce December 2015. First offence was in June I lost my debit card and asked the banker at the Sunnyvale branch to send me a new card to my new address. She told me I had to get a letrer from my landlord saying I live there to change my address. So basicaly my boyfriend who owns his house would have to mail a letter to corporate to get my addressed changed, I smeell bullshit and went for a month without a debit card. Till one day I went to the San Carlos branch told her why I did not have a card and she said the girl just did not want to do it. Got a bew card. Since then all hell. My card that got canceled in June? Yeah got a charge in August from hertz in another state I have never been to. Then they have been constantly charging me 32$ overdraft fees and sending me letters why. I always have an extra $300 in my account then my bills needed and if I spend I replace it that day. Every letter says My bills are x amount of money and I am short x amount and my balance is x amount. What they say I am short is actually how much extra I have in my acvount. It has gotten ridiculous. I find out today that they had a lawsuit about that about 4 years ago. Now to top it off I cashed a 310$ check and after it got approved in two separate times I am still $100 short of what I should be. They won't do anythinf about it. Even though I have all my deposit slips I am still the one in the wrong to them. I am going to the BBVA branch by my work tomorrow and closing my account. I am done with their garbage.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

stopped to open a checking account. The banker FELICIA VASQUEZ filled up the information and when requesting to sign the documents I read that the Clear Benefit Package was included. I told her that I was not interested in having that package. She advised me that there is no way to open an account without having the Clear Benefit Package. I insisted because sounded illogical for me but again she told me that she could not open an account without accepting the benefit package. So I did open the account the way she told me. I went to the main branch (downtown) to verified the information provided and the banker told me what she said was INCORRECT, that any account can be open without accepting the benefit package. I also called your customer service line on 9/12/2016 and a representative by the name of Benjamin ID # 314091 helped me, he did provided good customer service, and he stated that what THE LOCAL BANKER TOLD ME WAS NOT TRUE.
I have been banking with you since 2005 before the bank was BBVA Compass and I have seen how your customer service is worst and worst every time. Every different branch or individual tells you different things about the same concern. They are totally unprofessional, unreliable and unethical. Basically FELICIA VASQUEZ committed FRAUD by trying to meet her selling quota. That is completely unacceptable. I will never be BBVA Compass bank customer again!
La empleada de BBVA Compass FELICIA VASQUEZ comete fraude al engañar a los usuarios diciendoles que tienen que aceptar beneficios obligatoriamente si desean abrir una cuenta nueva lo cual es MENTIRA. Los beneficios tienen un costo mensual aunque el primer mes sean "gratis". NO ES OBLIGACION ACEPTAR ESOS "BENEFICIOS" para abrir una cuenta de cheques. No le crean solo quiere vender.
NUNCA SERE CLIENTE DE ESTE BANCO JAMAS!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Have a mortgage with BBVA for THREE years. Simply it is 2016 ad you CANNOT make a mortgage payment through their website unless you have a bank account with them! REALLY, you gave me a mortgage, but I cannot make a payment. Oh, but if I pay the $9.00 service charge, they will draft it out of my bank account with Chase. They do not cooperate with Chase bank for an online payment through by Bill Pay, so it takes my bank (Chase) 5 business days, not including weekends to manually send BBVA my mortgage payment. This is ridiculous, but what is worse is the condescending attitude that BBVA's clients get for questioning this antiquated and unfair servicing of their Mortgage and being up to date in the industry. BBVA, PLEASE REMEMBER that their are always OTHER options with mortgage servicing companies. Especially when you have A1 credit, such as I. Shame on you!!!!

I must really applaud BBVA Compass Bank. I was able to officially open a Checking and Savings account online. Whereas I'd opened those same type of accounts at another bank, received my approval along with my account and routing numbers, only to find that after I changed my payroll information on my job that the accounts had been closed without any type of contact from the bank. But with BBVA Compass Bank my accounts were approved, opened and ready for deposit. And of course after the experience that I had prior to BBVA I called them to make certain that the accounts were actually approved and opened and I received the most pleasant and efficient customer service. The customer representative explained in great detail about my accounts, bank services that are available to me as well as other services that I was eligible to take advantage of. I must say that I am deeply satisfied thus far of the services that I have received and look forward to a great banking relationship with BBVA Compass Bank.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

I did a on line transfer from Quicken to move funds from my Compass M.M. to Compass checking. The transaction did not record correctly between accounts. In an attempt to learn if the transaction did actually take place, I telephoned the BBVA on line number. After explaining the problem clearly and answering several security questions, I was informed that I had to be transferred to another agent. This happed four times, each time security question were asked and problem stated.
Out of frustration I went to the Premier Personal Banking website and was advised that I would have quicker service if I left a call back number. After eight to ten minutes I received a call back and was again put on hold for the next available agent. After an eight minute hold I hung up ,went back to the website an attempted a chat. Fill out the request and the response was "That I would be answered momentarily". Waited another ten minuets and gave up.
If Compass was hacked by a competitor that attempted to sabotage their business, the completion could not screw up the system any better than the present staff at

I opened an account there; moved my money from a local credit union that had gone down to 0.2% on savings. BBVA Compass offered a rate for 1.2% on their Clear Choice Money Market account if you opened it online. It was supposed to last a year- the rate was down to 0.4% within a few months. So I'm taking money out and putting it in PGX, a corporate bond ETF that pays about 5.7% with a .5% expense ratio and a four star Morningstar rating. Don't these stupid banks realize what competition there is? There are many online accounts paying from .85% to 1.05% on a steady basis, because even with low rates they can make four times that with a fixed rate mortgage loan. BBVA is just being greedy or going out of business.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
