I have been with US Bank for two years now and love everything about this bank. US Bank is a very military friendly bank. Every bank has fees even credit unions how do you think they pay their employees. US Banks fees are not that bad compaired to the other banks i have been with. The bankers are always willing to help and always have a smile on their face. You can tell that they love the company they work for. I tell all my friends and family to switch over to what i think is the best bank in the United States.

Was happy with US bank until Ukiah, CA
dlipelt Account Holder

I have been a customer of US Bank since the 1990s.  Until I began dealing with Ukiah branch in the Safeway I had no concerns.  I do not trust the staff in Ukiah.  I obtained a home loan there.  Every time I phoned to see how my loan was coming along there was someone new in charge of my loan.  At one point they lost my file.  Vincent offered me 100 dollars for the inconvience of 'shredding' my file.  A month later my file was returned to me.  It was a miracle.  My file had risen from the shredding pile.  I do not believe they can be trusted with any private information and this causes concerns about security and integrity of the entire branch.  I will change banks as quickly as possible and encourage others to not trust this branch.

If i could rate negative stars i would. Ive suppossedly had a fraud investigation going on since early march. I filed a police report and all the necessary paper work with the bank. Ive lost track how many times i have called, emailed, and gone into this branch to speak with someone about this claim. The other day i try to log into my account to see if there was an update. It said that the account was no longer active. So today i called the branch. The teller who answered told me that there had been no claim filed. After several different times i was told it was filed and now we were just waiting for a response. She proceeded to talk over me, being incredibly rude and unhelpful the entire time. I asked to speak to a manager. She continued to talk over me. I asked 4 more times before i was finally put on hold to speak to a manager. I was literally on hold for a half an hour. After the 30min mark i finally gave up and hung up the phone. All i know is that there is no longer an active account... sooo i have no idea what is going on with my account and apparently they dont either. I should have been notified if anything changed. Especially since this can seriously impact my credit, etc. This whole thing is absolutely ridiculous. It is clear that this bank is incredibly incompetent and unprofessional. Once (if i ever) learn what is going on with my account i will be leaving this bank. And you better believe i will be warning everyone i know to steer clear of this bank.

Horrible bank.
chrisleigh123 Account Holder

I have had so many credit cards with many different banks. None is nearly is bad as US Bank.  Card services is especially awful. The employees are rude and unhelpful. The bank seems to make a lot of mistakes and that is something I have never experienced anywhere else.  I will be switching to Citi as soon as possible.  I totally regret leaving Wells Fargo

USBank, Is The Bee's Knees
Schwartzinator Account Holder

There seems to be a lot of hateful words spread around about USBank. People knocking them for rejections and long hold times and rude customer service. I've had a relationship with USBank for about 5 years now and have never once had a negative interaction in person or on the phone. Their application process can be a little odd at times, and their underwriters are pretty frugal, but they were kind enough to extend a line of credit to me 3 years ago when I had a blank credit file. Thanks to them, I've been able to grow it with a little tlc and time. Their customer support has been fantastic in taking care of my needs, but does on occasion require an escalation as their front line cannot complete my request (combining credit lines). Their website is simple and straightfoward as are their apps, but leaves a little to be desired compared to Discover and American Express but far outshines Chase. As far as product offerings go, USBank doesn't offer anything outstanding which is dissapointing, but they also doesn't charge much in the way of annual fees so it's somewhat moot. All in all, USBank is fantastic and their checking accounts and credit cards are an excellent option for no frills customers.

Great Cash Rewards Program
SamBlue136 Account Holder

They offer great Cash Rewards Program. This became my secondary bank because of that. I sign up so I could use their Cash Rewards credit card. Easy to view, manage and pay online. You get to pick different categories for your 5%, 2% and 1% cash back. I use the card for everyday purchases and will continue to do so. Just make sure you're on top of your balances.

Worst card ever !! Every month something
ravenwenchii Account Holder

After one year if your score is not 750 they turn you down for unsecured and your choice is either mail in request to cancel to receive your refund up to 90 days to receive or continue w secured and let them keep deposit. I would like to add of course cancelling card will negatively effect your score and moving from 550-600 to 750 pretty difficult! I would STAY AWAY from this company if I could do it over .

They lost my check
Anonymous Account Holder

This bank needs to be shut down. They lost my check and it took them 30 minutes to locate after I went in and flipped out because they were charging me overdraft fees for no reason at all.

They also charged me interest on a zero dollar balance for my credit card. I asked how this was possible and the lady didn't provide much help. I was basically forced to pay the $4.82. 

Just a terrible bank. Go elsewhere. Like UMB.

Worst Bank Ever!
Anonymous308 Account Holder

I currently have my car lease with U.S Bank and am extremely dissatisfied with the way they treat their customers. I went to make an online payment, and because I do not hold an account with them I am required to input my full routing and account number every time I pay. Once during this process I seemed to have mistyped one number and the payment subsequently bounced. I was completely unaware of this (no attempts were made to notify me of this simple mistake) until I went to pay the following month. After I called to question the new balance I was made aware of the mistake and immediately paid off the entire debt. This bank then preceded to report this incident to consumer reporting effectively lowering my credit score over 100 points. I filed to dispute this only to be denied. The payment was due on 21st and I paid off the entire amount after being made aware on the following month 22nd, one day outside the reporting time.

During this process I had to contact customer service approximately seven times. Every time I called I was transferred to another department, having to re-explain the situation and was transferred/hung up on twice.  Avoid this bank at all cost.

Good Card
cole2coley Account Holder

I applied for this card in hopes to build my credit. I was careless in my younger days and didn't know much about credit and how my spending would affect me later in life.. It took a few days to get the actual approval and didn't know I was approved until they took the funds out of my account unexpectedly. I've had it for 2 bill cycles and never carry a statement balance over. My score jumped up at least 25 points when it started to show on my credit report!
