Great Bank
I have had nothing but positive experiences with Bank 5 connect. Online and mobile banking is on par with the bigger banks but their customer service is way better. Very happy with my decision to switch to Bank 5 connect!

Easy to set up an account, and when I needed help recently the customer service representative immediately gave me the information I needed. I closed my account, but will use Bank5 Connect again in the future.

Expecting the worst, got the best.
I had lost a lot of information in a move and expected to have a difficult time when I called customer service. It was the exact opposite. The man who helped me was patient and explained things clearly and stayed on the line with me until my problem was 100% solved. Great job.
