Thanks so much, how long does it take, hoping to use the first morning to get it set up.

Just back from WDW and opening an account with Suntrust was a breeze. Minimum amount for opening was $100 but after that there is no minium amount needed.

Took the free checking account, got a small starter booklet of checks right away as well as the log-in information for setting up the online account. PIN code I could also set right away.

To finish the online account access I had to wait for an e-mail from SunTrust with a setup ID, this arrived the next day. The free Visa Debit Card I received within the week to my swiss adress.

I now sent a fax to DVC on their secure fax line with a voided check requesting to charge future annual dues monthly to that account.

BTW, there is also an iPhone app for online banking with SunTrust. Just search for SunTrust in the app store, it's free.

It's handy to check on the current amount of money on the account.

We opened up an account at Sun Trust at Downtown today, girl just asked how much we would like to put in, she never asked for a set minimum so I just put $40. It only took about 30-40 minutes.

Hi,

We went to set an account at Sun Trust in June. They told us that we need 1 photo ID and 1 utility bill. Unfortunately, we didn't have any utility bills with us so we couldn't do it.

Hopefully, we will get it sorted out next time.

Did you tell them that you live outside the US?

They only asked for my passport.

Yes we did and they said that's why they need both otherwise a driving license would have been ok.

It is administered by Citibank in the United Kingdom when they have branches in London, I can go.It is free of charge, as long as they maintain a certain balance.We have a savings account in dollars with them and we can win interest.Our plan is that when recharge rates are good. We have a decent amount, when the pound was at $ 1.90 and will use for all expenditure of our dollars for the next two years.

When we opened our account we were told that we would receive an email which would allow us to do online banking, I never received this. In contacted the banker and was told that they see where the problem was and would rectify it straight away, still waiting, but received my bank card through the post today so some progress.

Did you check with the bank that they have your e-mail adress right? Also, make sure the mail doesn't end up in the spam folder.

Received my activation mail for e-banking on the same day I was at the bank opening the account. The visa check card arrived about 3 weeks later.

BTW, there is an iphone app for SunTrust e-banking. Quite handy to check the balance on the go.
