I was skeptical at first about putting my money with Synchrony Bank, but after lots of research, YouTube videos and reading reviews I went for it. It has been the best decision so far.
The only complaint I really saw the most is poor accessibility to funds when needed. The point of a savings account is to save money, not spend it. I understand life happens for some people and emergencies arise, but you need to understand its this way for a reason. I kept a savings account with my normal bank for emergencies because I can easily get to it and I recommend you doing the same. To withdrawal funds from your Synchrony account takes about 3-5 business days for the transaction to complete.
So again my advice is just put your money with Synchrony and leave it alone, and keep a little savings with your normal bank for urgent situations.
