Do you guys trust Banking with Ally bank. They have some products like high interest checking/saving accounts and high yield CDs compared to others. However a part of me is skeptical since they have no in-person presence. Can anyone share their positive and negative experiences?

      Yup... Call wait time is right on the home page and it's time to a real person and not just a robot

    Online banking is the way to go now. No costs to keep physical locations means more perks for you. Maybe keep one brick and mortar checking account for the flexibility with couple hundred in case, then try to do most of your banking online. Schwab is another good option

    I use it. It's great. Only downside is you can't deposit cash. Hasn't been an issue for me yet.

    Christian. Love Microsoft. High aspirations, low expectations.
    I use Simple, which is similar. Love it. Dealing with cash is tougher as are checks but those two cases are rare. We have a wells Fargo acct for thst purpose just in case with very little in it
