Rated 4 out of 5 by from NEED A PLACE FOR PERSONAL NOTES... So far the checking account is great and all Schwab services and assistance from personnel has been great. I would love to have a place on the website where I could make personal notations and reminders that I could access while I am online. Could it be possible to add such a thing? I think other people would appreciate it too? Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The epitome of customer service I have had Schwab accounts since 2007 and am currently making changes to deal solely with Schwab. They are like a last bastion of customer service. I highly recommend this institution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great services Schwab has great customer service for the price and returns. The only negative I have is that transfers take forever to get posted. Aside from that so much better than other banks I have dealt with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Physical Locations, Even at Physical Schwab Branches I'm a generally happy customer, but I had a bit of a frustrating experience trying to deposit a matured US Bond at the physical Charles Schwab Branch in Philadelphia. I assumed I could do normal banking (I just want to give them my money!) but was told I have to redeem the bond through the government website. I specifically went to Schwab directly because I thought it would be more secure and ultimately easier. I wish Schwab made it a little clearer with this checking account that there are no physical Schwab banking locations, including at physical Schwab locations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No minimum balance and free checking! I really like Schwab checking. Best feature for me is no minimum balance and no monthly fee. Customer service is excellent. Checking account has other perks too. Android Schwab app is great.
