Mediocre rates, high early withdrawl penalties, hard to work with - look elsewhere
When I originally opened an account at CIT, their interest rates were competitive and I liked the idea of their step up CD where I can increase the interest on my CD as rates climb. In the past year, their rates have become mediocre for an online bank with much better rates at other banks. The interest rates on the step up CDs have gone down over the past couple of years as rates have been going up. Their early withdrawl penalty is 6 months interest - much higher than competitors. They get you locked into lousy interest rates. Their website is antiquated and difficult to use. The bank is extremely difficult to deal with. There are much better deals out there. Don't get locked into this bank!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

CIT Bank is cheater
I opened a savings account under online promotion that if I maintain $15000 for 3 months, I will get $100 bonus. I kept the money for 95 days but they are refusing to release the bonus, saying the fine print says - " I was supposed to keep the balance for 3 statement cycles".
Who reads the fine print when the short script says unambiguously to keep funds for 3 months?
They are cheaters IMHO.
Will never do business with them.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
