Citizens Bank named one of the nation’s best banks by Money Magazine
Extended branch hours, 24/7 customer contact center and online support cited as standouts
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (October 22, 2013) – Money Magazine has selected Citizens Bank as one of nation’s best banks in its 2013 list of "The Best Banks in America." Citizens Bank was recognized for its level of customer convenience available through its 24/7 customer contact center, its banking specialists available online via instant messaging and its network of approximately 1,400 branches and 3,600 ATMs. Money’s “The Best Banks in America” feature is in the November issue.
“Our customers typically choose to bank with us because of how easy it is to access their accounts at their local branch, through our 24/7 customer service center, at an ATM, online or on their mobile phones,” said Brad Conner, Vice Chairman of Consumer Banking for RBS Citizens Financial Group. “We are committed to making banking simple, clear and personal and we are proud to be recognized by Money Magazine as one of The Best Banks in America.”
In addition to a “robust presence” defined by its many branches and ATMs, Money recognized Citizens Bank’s extended branch hours that include 7-day-a-week supermarket branches.
“Customers are busier than ever, and our convenience options underscore our commitment to help customers bank when, where and how they want,” said Conner.
Citizens Bank’s convenience options also extend to its Mobile Banking apps for Android and iPhone, which are generating the most-positive customer feedback in the industry, according to two independent reviews. An August report issued by Xtreme Labs noted that “Citizens Bank is the only bank with the highest rated apps on both Android (4.5 stars) and iOS (4.5 stars) platforms.”
These findings echo a December 2012 Javelin Strategy & Research report that ranked Citizens Bank #1 for mobile-banking customer satisfaction.
