Off to a good start with Bank5 Connect.
Off to a good start with Bank5 Connect. Responsive customer service, and a slick, clean app. They're in the 21st century unlike other nearby online online divisions of brick and mortar banks.

Great Online Bank
Easy to setup. I was moving from another online bank and the move and funds transfer was smooth. I have also now used Bank5 for auto-payments and their bill pay and all have been easy and smooth. The interest rates that they offer are the best.
