Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great Company I initially got a Schwab checking account when I went overseas due to no ATM fees and since then I have recommended Schwab to countless people and will continue to do so. I have been so pleased with how easy it is to do banking with Schwab despite how few actual locations there are. It's pretty unnecessary to even need to go to a physical location. The customer service is also fantastic, which is hard to find with most companies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's Not To Like? I've only had this account for about 2 months now but I really have no complaints. Yes, they put a longer hold on mobile deposits and transfers for "new accounts" but it's only for the first 3 months. Plus all of the other great features far outweigh that 1 setback. No ATM fees...for me this is huge because I came from a smaller bank that when I traveled, I better have cash on me or suck it up and pay the fees. The interest rate isn't that great but my old checking account had no interest rate, so any interest rate in a checking account is good compared to what I had. I haven't had any problems with customer service.. but I've also only had to call once; to verify my account. I haven't even had to visit a branch which to me is amazing! I love being able to do everything on my phone or a computer. All in all, so far so good! Would definitely recommend this account to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Courtesy & helpfulness personified Whenever I call with a question or concern, I am always helped in a very professional and courteous manner. I was not sure of a charge on my checking account, together, we figured it out...was a convenience store where I had forgotten I had purchased gas on my way home from Myrtle Beach, SC.
