    SunTrust Bank Review

    October 22, 2018 - By Kim P - Reviews for SunTrust Bank Promotions
    If customer service ranks high on your list, SunTrust Bank may be one you want to check out. While they offer interest rates comparable to most "big banks," they do offer that warm, fuzzy feeling some people look for in a bank.
