    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: fees

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: customer service

    General comments: It used to be a good bank as I know from 15 years being with them. Last few years, customer service is not professional with no customer service skills. The processes are punitive and it seems that you get what you paid for- no fees no service. Something has changed in the culture of this bank in recent years.

    How long have you banked with them?: More than 10 years.

    Why do you bank with them?: I get good service with their master card and like the money off groceries with the card. When I opened my savings accounts with them they used to have good rates of interest.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: The PC financial master card.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Interest rates have become poor and are much better at credit unions. This 'no fee' bank charges $50 to transfer out a TFSA. Be warned! This is hidden away in the legalese part of the web site and is not clear up front.

    General comments: I have moved my TFSA and savings account elsewhere to get higher interest rates.

    Why do you bank with them?: just want to try how they are overall

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: no fee bank acct.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: To increase their customer service response in terms of their shortfall or when their machine is down.Make it a priority and 10 business days is so long to wait.It prolong your anxiousness and it's worrying.

    General comments: Upsetting and poor or bad experienced last may 3,2014.the machine didnot dispense the money I'm trying to withdraw and was debited on my acct.,which is really upsetting and concerning.Waited on the phone for more than 30 mins. and then just to tell you that it might take up to 10 days of investigation, Wasn't happy at all and so upset.I've think of changing a bank.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: No fees

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: The wait times are unreal, and the online banking doesn't work properly.

    General comments: Really, really think about it before you switch. You will be putting hours into this change. I'm just hoping it works out in the end because I'm sitting on hold for 20 minutes really regretting it (and I'm on hold because the pay a bill feature doesn't work)

    Interface (online, telephone, in-person, etc.): Rated 1 / 5 stars

    How long have you banked with them?: since 96

    Why do you bank with them?: no fee banking

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: As long as my banking requests fit squarely into their account features & associated fees I have never had any problems, for basic daily online banking I would recommend them.

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Bureaucratic nightmare when dealing with customer service. Because the only people you ever speak with in person are at their pavilions (they dont have tellers) if you need something that these people are unauthorized to do you have to wait endlessly for any banking request that cannot be done online. Everything has to be sent via fax or mail and a simple request that would normally take 5 mins takes 5-7 business days. If something goes wrong everyone passes the buck and instead of calling you they will tell you that because they are a free bank they are not allowed to make outbound calls to inform you. You must call them every day and get people's names & hold them accountable. Always ask to speak to a supervisor, the people at the pavilions and general customer service are low paid and generally mindless drones. The incompetence can be astounding and nobody will accept responsibility for anything. If you find a good person (a supervisor who can help) get their ext & always call them directly.

    General comments: you get what you pay for and when they f* up, that is what they will tell you in typical "polite" torontonian.

    How long have you banked with them?: 2 years

    Why do you bank with them?: No fee accounts, paid interest on chequing account, and food points

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: see above, plus pavilion nearby

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Better interest rates (seen graph over last few years and the rates have steadily dropped). The promotions should be automatically applied to existing customers (i.e., 2.6% for new monies until Dec.) instead of them having to register for it (a representative actually had the audacity to suggest that some people don't want the promotion)

    General comments: This is my first online banking account experience and I'm overall satisfied in the simplicity of paying bills and transfer monies between accounts, but I'm still going to look for another bank with better interest rates (and hopefully automated promotion entries for existing customers)

Today, I called, and I was told that I called in July and asked to reduce, while lie on my face and when I confronted the customer service guy, he cut off the line and disappear like he is working for government, very rude and arrogant customer service .

    How long have you banked with them?: 10 Yrs with PC Financial, <1 month of dissatisfaction w Simplii

    Why do you bank with them?: I had no choice as PCF sold its business & my assets to Simplii.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: Nothing! They should quit while they're ahead

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Their service is crappie! They've canceled my "lost" Simplii card which they sent via unsecured snail mail but in so doing also canceled my PC card ( recall...same ##s, same passwords with switch to Simplii). So, now it's 6 days B4 Xmas & I have no cash as I can't access my money's via ATM, On-line-or via phone banking. Thanks Simplii...you've ruined my Xmas & caused me great inconvenience by holding my money in a manner that bars me access to it. As soon as I get access, I'm ditching Simplii & heading over to Tangerine! I suspect that others will likely follow suit! Simplii put...Simplii services SUCK!!!Nothing...they're slow & incompetent!

Strait garbage company hands down I will tell everyone not to bank with you guys what so ever, I’m glad I have no other services with you guys cause I would be pissed. Maybe with the amount of money you guys make should invest opening a branch or be able to go into a cibc location to do banking since ur partners with them.

    General comments: You do get what you pay for, some people will never be happy. But for free banking, I have saved thousands over the last 13 years and I will continue to save. If you want tellers and people to talk with then you need to go elsewhere. But if your apt at banking online, over the phone, then you will enjoy not paying fees every month, and free cheques, but if you must complain and you need someone to listen, go bank somewhere else, this is not for you.

    What do you like about this bank / credit union?: No Fees

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: They could help their customers more. I wanted to increase my loan, I was going to pay the majority off on the existing loan, I would have had under $1000. I wanted to borrow $10000 to pay off my credit cards. I dont understand why they dont want to help me get out of debt. Surely they would benefit from the interest payments that I am currently paying on the credit cards. It doesn't make sense. Obviously the payments I am making now are more than they would be for one loan. Its so frustrating.

    General comments: Stupid bank keeping me in debt for longer than I need to be. Seriously a bit of actual customer compassion would go a long way. But I guess all financial institutions are the same, they are all greedy beyond belief screw the customers. Right???

    What could be improved about this bank / credit union?: Stop using them

    General comments: Simplii Financial - Avoid at all Costs !! Terrible Banking Company! The Absolute Worst!! They Closed my checking account and other accounts because of too many email transfers, deposits and withdrawals. On top of that they are still holding my direct deposit for over $5500 for over a week now and also holding a direct deposit email transfer. I can not get a hold of anyone and constantly on hold when I call in for anywhere from 30 min to an hour only to finally talk to someone to only be transfer to someone else. Then finally only to be hung up on or transferred to another incompetent employee. DO NOT sign up with this company What is the point of having a bank account if I can not email transfer money, make deposits and take money out of the bank. I had direct deposit from my employer every 2 weeks for over 15 years and I sent a lot of email transfers and spent a lot of cash from withdrawing at bank machine. I was with PCfinancial for over 15 years with absolutely no issues until Simplii financial took over. once they closed all my accounts I immediately Jumped over to another Banking Company (I won't mention any names just incase I have issues with them too ) However so far way better service and not one single issue.

    General comments: We are trying desperately to get away from this disgusting example of a company. They've locked down our money to the point of going on 2 MONTHS now since we started the process of switching banks! 2 MONTHS! With no access too the account! We almost got evicted for Christ sakes! And the bank that's trying to get our account away from these thieves is even having a nightmare of a time making any progress. Serious question: the have our money, wont release it and we have no access to it. at one point does this actually become theft? We're discussing getting a lawyer. Stay away from simplii.

    General comments: I am very dissatisfied was Simplii Financial I will be changing my account as soon as possible to another bank. I have been trying to get a line of credit and been working on the file since July it is almost the end of August 2018 and it has not gone through after many promises that it would go. We were approved in July. The paperwork that should not take a month to complete. They have had many representatives on sick leave and my file has been bounced around from representative to representative without any resolve. There has been little communication and I called very angry and the customer service person raise their voice with me... Very unprofessional!!!

    General comments: If you value your time do NOT get a mortgage or refinance one here. It has been drawn out over a month and they don’t answer the phone EVER, don’t call back and the emails are only partial answers to questions when they come at all. Awful experience! Thought it would be easiest as I am often out of country but I was terribly wrong. Mortgage expired in Sept and still work Hour the arrangements signed off. NEVER again!!!!
