The best thing to happen to finance
enlnc Account Holder

I'm baffled by some of the harsh reviews on here. I've been a member of Simple since it's early BankSimple days, and I have to tell you, this is company is amazing. Maybe its years with Wells Fargo that is setting the bar a little too low, but Simple has phenomenol customer service, intuitive budgeting features, and a top rate app. I think most people don't realize how powerful and numerous the features are, like automatic check mailing and the Goals/Expenses sections.  I love their high yield savings account that lives inside your account -- its not the *very* best yield APY but it's close to the best, and given the instantaneous transfer to my regular checking account, it totally wins. What else can I say. Exporting your data off their site is super easy.  Writing memos about each transaction is a godsend. One minor bonus, I was one of the lucky ones to get in their paper check program, which I hope they expand to more customers; it allowed us to completely rid ourselves of Wells Fargo for that 1-2 times a year we needed to write a paper check. I'm not one to write reviews, but this is one of those few companies that I will totally evangelize and tell everyone about - it's just that good.

Best bank EVER!!!!!!
1Love1Heart Account Holder

This is seriously the best bank ever. You can have seperate accounts AND a joint account,you can set up protected goals/savings,you can transfer money INSTANTLY, the app is extremely clean and 'simple' 😉, the customer service is 5 🌟 alone,if you need anything you can call and directly get a live person,or you can email and get an almost instant response with real help. I have zero complaints,zero!!! Been with them for four years,never regreted it.

Perfect, very Simple
Den2019 Account Holder

It's Simple just like it's supposed to be. Alot of Banks only care about credit scores, and charge overdraft fees all the time. Simple doesn't have overdraft fees, which keeps more money in my pockets. It's very easy to deposit checks by taking the picture and sending it via the Simple app.

The best UX in banking
skehmatics Account Holder

Beautiful and easy to use apps / websites, built in budgeting tools, joint accounts, high yield savings accounts, bill pay, photo check deposit, muxh more and its fee free all the way down. Plus, and this is impressive, I as a regular citizen and not a banking master never felt overwhelmed or confused on how to use all these features or what they meant. And even if you do, their support documents and actual support staff are wonderful.

However, note that if you commonly deal with cash, the bank is all online, so getting said cash into your account can be annoying.

That is my one and only complaint. About a bank.
Simple is the only bank I think I will ever use, not because I'm locked in, but because they have set the bar so very high
