$5K Savings is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Pretty Cool Thing I'm very new to banking stuff and how it all works and I dunno if this was supposed to be self-evident, but I wasn't aware I could not withdraw money from the 5k savings account without incurring a penalty. Would've been nice to know that ahead of time, but aside from that the service itself is great and I've been very happy with it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The branch rep I love being a fairwinds client but the rep in the branch on U.S.27 was not helpful and very rude to the point I wanted to close my account. I went in to add my wife to my account and get some information regarding CD's and other ways of saving. Long story short I have no clue what a CD is

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5k Savings I am happy with myth 5K savings. However there was one hiccup. I originally set one up the years ago. When it expired it was still showing as a 5K when I logged in online. I didn't realize it had reverted back to a regular savings account until visiting my local branch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Help I am a college student who lives Paycheck to Paycheck. When I realized this can't go on I started my 5K savings and with small entries of $10 some time $30 a week by the end of the semester I had plenty of money to get a down payment on a new car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent plan This is the most effective saving plan I have ever encountered. Can't wait to meet my goal and start a new 5k savings again. I encouraged 5 friends to join Fairwinds and start the 5k which they all did. So happy. Thanks Fairwinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I set up an automatic withdrawal that was to be taken from a check that deposits automatically on the first of every month. The set up was easy. The customer service was great and everyone was wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Savings I like this product because it makes me actually save and I know money will be taken out if I remove it. It's my true longish term savings account and I'm glad I have it.
