Based on MyBankTracker’s Bank Report Card, Bank of America scores 3 out of 5 marks overall, ranking highly in the number of locations and mobile services.

However, the bank gets only 2 out of 5 stars on average from reviewers. Users consistently complained of general incompetence, confusion, ample fees and overdraft charges. Kathy A. writes:

I just closed 3 accounts w/ BOA – I was charged $140 in overdraft fees even though my bank statement did not show a negative balance… I called customer service – on hold for a long time then they were rude and no help, went to a branch and talked to the vice president… I asked the vice president of the branch to please fix the problem, he flatly refused and offered no help. I told him that I would be closing my 3 accounts and spreading the word not to use his bank and why. He told me “go ahead and do whatever I needed to” – he didn’t care in the least.

There are also some positive reviews praising the bank on its good service. Akale1982 writes:

I like the convenience of ATMs everywhere and have found the people working in the bank to be pleasant and helpful. I agree interest rates are low but I view this as a place to just keep ready cash, NOT long term savings or investments.
