Does anyone have an account or experience with ally Bank? After just reviewing my money market and savings accounts and the insanely low interest rates, I need to do something different. ally bank seems to have the best rates but with things mainly being online only I need some more information, makes me a little nervous.
I just have CDs with Ally, but I’ve been very happy with them. I can call them anytime if I need to, and they’re always friendly and helpful. CD rates are lousy everywhere (while bankers continue to rake in $$$$$), but Ally usually ranks near or at the top for rates.
They were once owned by GMAC and received some $17 billion in federal bailout money. As of 2011, the US Treasury was a majority owner. Don’t know if that’s still true.
