It seems that many people are looking for info on BBT and their Banking Products. BBT’s official name is Branch Banking and Trust Company. They were established in 1872 so certainly have weathered quite a few storms. So let’s check-out BBT Banking. :O)
They are a large bank based in the south east of the US. They have about $147 Billion in assets. They indicated that checking accounts and savings accounts can be opened over the phone, but CDs require a branch visit. So it seems like they are good for locals only. The BBT CD Rates were pretty awful, 0.80% APY for a 1-year CD and 1.00% for a 2-year.
However, they do have a $100 bonus on their checking account if you attach Direct Deposit or do 3 Bill pays.
Their FDIC number is 9846.
Phone: 800-BANK-BBT (800-226-5228)
Main Location: Winston-Salem, NC
Mortgage refinance and mortgage refinance rates also seems to be a popular search for BBT.
That’s all I know about BBT Banking.
