I am not a Sun Trust customer, and now it is guaranteed I will never be one. It may seem silly but on a fundamental level I think my story is important. My young son had a roll of quarters he had saved and wanted to exchange for a ten dollar bill ("real money" according to him). While we were at the store I took his roll of quarters to do just that. The money center in the store wouldn't do it for us and pointed us in the direction of the bank. I wasn't overly surprised. The bank is that place that helps you exchange, keep, save, and borrow.... money. There was no line, the counter staff were not busy. From what I could tell they were just sitting there talking to each other. So I walked up with our humble roll of quarters and asked for a ten dollar bill. The lady behind the counter asked if I had an account with them. This took me a little off guard. I wasn't trying to take out an auto loan. I just wanted to exchange some VERY small currency. I don't have an account and she very brusquely told me I needed an account and a phone number registered with Sun Trust in case the amount wasn't correct so they had a way to contact me. I know this sounds like I'm making this up. I wish I was. At this point I am beyond bewildered. I had to pause to make sure she wasn't joking. I'm also insulted. First, I have worked in multiple jobs where I've had to count up and maintain money tills or a safe. With this you have to count rolls of change. I know technology exists that allows you to place the roll in the counter and based on weight it knows whether or not the amount is right (I know because I've used it and it takes about 1 second). Beyond that, if you don't trust the contents of the roll, I know it took me all of about 30 seconds to count up the roll in the first place BY HAND(oh the horror!). She tells me sorry there is nothing she can do.

Big bad Sun Trust bank can't count a $10 quarter roll.

I realize the loss of me ever being a customer will have zero impact on this bank. I also realize I could tell as many people as I could find not to use Sun Trust, until I was blue in the face, and Sun Trust would never even flinch. I realize this will probably never even actually be read by anyone at Sun Trust. If it is it will likely be disregarded as quickly as my little $10 quarter roll. I didn't argue. I couldn't. How stupid do you think your customers are?  I said "thank you anyways" and walked away. I was in absolute shock. Yes, I was asking for a free service, but it was a realistic free service. I was asking to exchange 40 quarters in to a bill. Something like this is a little thing you do for your customer to earn a reputation in the community. It costs you absolutely nothing and gives you a happy customer that may consider you the next time they need to buy a new car. I do believe I am in the market for such a bank.  

Now all this particular location is left with is a a couple of employees talking to each other (that you had to pay anyways), and a bad review. I'm not an expert, but it seems to me you missed out on free money. I will take my auto loan elsewhere because my son's $10 just wasn't good enough for you. I'm not drastically old fashioned, but sometimes it really IS the simple things that matter.

I do not think this is a fair review on the actual services this place provides. Why did you not just take the roll to your own bank or to a coin star? I have used SunTrust for many years and have never had a problem with the way they do things.

This person is a definite looser. She could not get her $10 bill for her roll of quarters at the "MONEY STORE", and that was no problem. But she is surprised that a bank that she has no account with would not do it either. THE TRUTH IS THAT SHE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT HAVE A BANK ACCOUNT OF HER OWN. She is a looser who probably bounced so many checks that she has to do her business at the Money Store. To say such negative things when the person was just following bank policy (which I agree with), is wrong. The people at the Wilton Manors branch are AWESOME. Extremely friendly, go out of their way to help whenever you have a problem. Ignore this bitter no bank account of her own looser.

@ thesimplethings:From one intelligent person to another, I understand where you are coming from. I am shocked by a lot of the stupidity of the world. Thank you for your post. It was very true to the society we live. You can tell that we still have a long way to go when you read some of the ignorant and mean comments from other posts. It breaks my heart that a person can not just post a opinion that was not demeaning, but yet, you are in returned called a loser. I just wanted to post a response to let you know Thesimplethings) that there are good people left, who got some sense. Thank you again for your post that made complete sense, unfortunately a lot of people are too senseless to understand, so they just rather name call like children do. Take care and thank the universe for blessing you with common sense, because there is a lack there of in this world.

Husband had two checks from ILA which were drawn on this bank. They cashed one but wanted to charge $7.00 to cash the second one. This is ridiculous! SunTrust you act like a fly by night check cashing company. Shame on you! I will NEVER bank with crooks!

You may not think that your comment got read, but I read it and it kept me from taking all of my banking business over to this bank.  I actually am happy with my bank, but they have closed the branches in the city I go to in upstate NY which is inconvenient for me, so I was looking for another bank that has branches in Florida and in the city I visit in NY.  Thanks for keeping me from making a mistake.

While it may not make sense to you as to why the bank should not accept rolls from non-clients, if you think from a liability standpoint, they are correct. They do not have any information on you because you're not a client. Also, they don't know you or your kid-- limiting their ability to assume specific facts regarding you, your inteligence and your financial standing. If person that comes in trying to cash them, then they would be taking away from being able to help every ACTUAL CLIENT in a timely fashion [another complaint
 That woul arise if the have if the teller took too long]. Suntrust does indeed take great care of their customers.

On another note to the commentator complaining about the check cashing fee, that isn't only a SUNTRUST policy, it's actually a policy most financial institutions have for non clients cashing business or payroll checks. If you don't like it-- take it to you bank and have them cash it against your account, pay the fee [ or go to Amscot and pay 3+ times more!] or simply open an Account and avoid the fee. Everyone wants everything for nothing and we often forget that while banks always want to do that it best for existing Nd potential clients, thry are also FOR PROFIT businessss.
