    "I have tried many different types of banks, but never one that was completely online. This one was really cool in that fact, but was very unique to me as I was used to being able to go to a physical location. Really nice for anyone traveling, or anyone who just wants to have a convenient bank that they can communicate with and manage all on their phone or computer!"

    "If you're in the market for an online bank, you definitely should consider Radius Bank. I was immediately attracted to the higher interest rates than brick and mortar banks. If you're looking to earn money via your savings account, then you'll definitely want to give Radius Bank a lot. The site is easy to use and there's both a live chat option and a phone number in case you encounter any problems. The two most significant downsides of the bank are that there is a relatively long wait period before you're able to transfer a significant amount of money and withdrawals are limited, which can make it problematic if you need to get money out to fund a large purchase. Overall, Radius Bank remains a strong option in spite of those flaws."
