The Most Helpful Suntrust Bank Reviews
The most helpful favorable review
Nightmare, we have gotten to the day before closing 3 times only to find that the Bank has not done their job.
This bank put a peace of property on the market without having the title clear. Then did not know enough to get it straightened out in a timely fashion. We should be closing today, for the third time. They still have not gotten their act together. We have invested too much time and energy to not sign yet another 2 week extension. My husband is a 90 percent disabled veteran and I am having to take him to see the doctor today because of the undo stress this has caused him.
The most helpful critical review
I was charged a fee of $36.00 for not having enough money in my account to cover and item that hit my account, I did not have the money to put in my account until I got paid, the account was overdrawn for about 6 days. On the day of my direct deposit SunTrust hit me with another $36.00 fee for the same item. When I called them about it, they said it's an extended overdraft fee. I work had everyday trying to make it, I can understand being charged an overdraft fee one time for not having the funds but to hit me a second time is just WRONG. That was my gas money for the week. Suntrust has lost me as a customer and I will warn all my friends and family members about SunTrust practices. Don't bank with SunTrust.

Suntrust is going downhill fast!
After 5 years and several hundred thousand dollars through my accounts with Suntrust in St. Cloud Florida, I have decided it is time to take my business where it will be appreciated. First it is nearly impossible to get a live person on the phone to answer questions at my local branch, when there is no employee available then I was automatically sent to the Branch Managers voicemail, where I had left messages with no luck. I called the East St. Cloud branch instead and I did get a hold of a female worker, who failed to try to here me out, and took a hostile position against me. She then went on to be condescending when I stated I can take my account elsewhere. She said don't threaten us with that, before you allow me to see what she could do. However I knew already by her tone of hostility and unwillingness to fully understand my question that she would even be able to meet my request, but I allowed her to amuse herself by saying there was nothing we could do. I then said no problem I will close my accounts after 5 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. These employees at Suntrust don't car for your business. If they did they would treat you like the customers that we are not as if they are doing us a service. Suntrust has this mentality that they are the only gig in town. Well I got news for them. Banks and getting bank accounts are a dime a dozen and some banks offer a couple of hundred bucks just for getting one. Suntrust needs to understand that when they allow their employees to disenfranchise their loyal customers, not only are they risking their deposits walking out the door, but they are loosing their debit card interchange purchases every time a customer swipes their debit card at merchants. This is a handsome reward for the banks, see they get 1.7 to 3% of that charge in fees assessed against that merchant. So lets say for example the bank ticks off a customer who spends $50,000 each year on their debit card, they are kissing $900 to $1500 each year goodbye. I bid Suntrust a Farewell today and I moved across the street to another bank that apparently staffs enough people to take care of me with a smile, and as a test I called the new bank and immediately got an attendant on the phone. How refreshing....Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Received letter forcing me to CLOSE MY ACCOUNT after 19 years
I have been a Suntrust customer for 19 years.
My house mortgage was with them, paid in full on time every month
I am disabled and live on a direct deposit Soc Sec check.
Received an unsigned letter in mail, no phone, no dept, no email address that I had 10 days to close my account. NO REASON.
My whole life depends on the direct deposit and online auto pay bills. No reason given to branch mgr. Learned it was because I disputed some small charges, which they investigated in my favor and paid out.
That was it.
This is the new corporate model. Dispute a charge, get tossed out. Amazon does this too. They never said one of my disputes was fraudulent. Not one was over $40.00.
Corporate Rape. You become the victim once and then again if you tell someone. This is a violation of the US Disability Act. They are a bank. They do not have to answer to anyone. The 99% will not allow the 1% to continue sipping champagne on their yachts and destroy lives.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

RUN AWAY!!! THIS COMPANY IS THE WORST EVER!
I went inside to withdraw money for a bill. I made the withdraw paid the bill and went on about my day. I checked my account later that night seen I was negative a very small portion of money so I moved some money over to cover it. Next morning I see a large amount of money in my account which was not alarming because I was expecting a deposit, paid more bills and next thing I know my card declines... I check my account see I'm negative a large amount of money. come to find out they never posted the first withdrawal I made until a day later!! They keep telling me this IS THEIR ERROR how ever I should have not spent money that was in my account they will recover the fees but that is all. This would not have happened if they processed it correctly!!!!!! so now they are blaming me!!! I called corporate and they said "we are not going to help you pay your bills" EXTREMELY RUDE!!!!! if they had processed everything or at least gave me a call or email or something this would not have happened and they wont rectify!! Do not come here!!!! RUN FAR AWAY!!! HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Still Waiting for my cards
At first I was pleased with Sun Trust.I had accounts already with Suntrust but when I moved I found a close location to go and bank with.This location was like a old time bank and I was treated very nicely.So I ordered new checks with my new address and a bank card.I also transferred my IRA over and replaced my credit card with one of theirs from another bank.This was done in July and I am still waiting on my Bank card and my MasterCard.I finally recieved my checks last Friday.The first set they sent was with the wrong address.So of course I go to the bank to look into it and at first I was treated okay not the best because I could tell the employee was ticked off to find out we didn't go to her to transfer my IRA.She was who mentioned doing so but she wasn't n the day I went and I didn't realize it would have looked good for her.So the whole time I was their I felt uncomfortable.Another week goes by and still no cards so back to the bank I went.And now I could tell I was bothering the employee.Its not my fault I haven't recieved my cards.She has an attitude this time.I guess it would be a okay bank if you don't run into problems where you need to go to the bank .Oh yeah it also took a month and a half for my IRA to make its way to their bank.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Don't use them
They closed my account because a check I deposited was "suspicious". The check has cleared and they still won't release the funds. They also accepted the direct deposit from my employer (after their customer service department advised me it would be returned to my employer) and won't release those funds either. It has been 8 business days since the check was deposited and two business days since the direct deposit went through. Their customer service department is not helpful and sounds like they are reading a script.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

WHy have a branch in Manakin Sabot
Yesterday was the second time I have had to leave the Manakin Sabot branch and travel to the Short Pump branch to get assistance. This time we were having identity theft issues and it was recommended that we go the branch and change our accounts over to new accounts. I walked into the Manakin Sabot branch and was told it would be a short wait. I could hear the woman who was supposed to help us on the phone in her office. After about 10 minutes of waiting I heard her hang up the phone, then proceed to dial another number. After listening to her talk about a wine party for several minutes we decided our business was obviously not important. We traveled to the Short Pump branch and were helped right away and very professionally by Jennifer. This is the second time this has happened. Why even have a branch in Manakin Sabot?Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Terrible Customer Service
I've banked with Suntrust for a few years Their customer service is horrible. Words that come to mind are unresponsive and inflexible. Quite frankly they act like they could care less if they keep my business even though I'm an excellent customer---high credit score, use a lot of their products including a credit card and mortgage. Good luck getting any problem resolved. If you use their online message service you will probably receive a response that doesn't even remotely correspond to your question. I'm finally going to take the time to move all of my accounts.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

SunTrust Violates their own policy
I have been with this chump bank for several years, mostly because my company uses then for payroll and IRA. I have had my issue with Suntrust, but this last one takes the cake. I made a withdrawal for my Suntrust Retirement Solutions IRA account, note this is a branch of Suntrust. I was issued a Suntrust check, drawn on Suntrust, payable to me. Now let me quote for Suntrust policy on availability of funds deposited
" Next-Day Availability
Funds from the following deposited items are available
for withdrawal on the first business day after the
day of your deposit – these items are also referred
to as next-day availability items. The checks must be
payable to you and deposited to your account.
SunTrust Bank checks..."
It clearly states that Suntrust Checks are available the next business day. Now this was a rather large check, and had it been a Suntrust check drawn from a personal account I could understand the hold, but this was a check drawn from Suntrust not a personal account, and it seems that this hick town back doesn't even trust its self and violates its own policies.
To make a long story short Suntrust will release my funds within the next 24 hours or face charges with the FTC, assuming that they pull their heads out of their asses I will be removing the funds and putting them into a real bank.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

When opening your account with Suntrust, they do not explain all of the fees that will be associated with your account. The representative are not properly trained and Suntrust overcharges for everything. If this is your first account, you need to be sure that this is the bank of your choice unless your employer also banks with them. Also, I would suggest researching other banks before choosing this bank. The overdraft fees are outrageous and the representatives that you speak to on the phone are not trained properly and sound like they are making things up as they go.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
