Rated 5 out of 5 by Timothy V Amazing Cash Account
It has been 6 months after I had made the switch from a B&M local bank to the Fidelity and I am very happy.
If you have a Fidelity IRA, Brokerage, or any other account, I would highly suggest it. It is very easy to transfer money from one to another. I also love the fact that I have free overdraft protection because if for some reason I have limited funds in my checking, it will automatically pull some money from my Brokerage account. Moving money from Checking to my IRA or Brokerage essentially takes 30 seconds to begin trading with it.
The ATM Free feature is amazing. I travel to Canada quarterly, and once I step into a CAN airport, I go to an ATM to obtain their currency FREE without paying a $10 commission at one of their exchange booths. Plus I get to keep less cash in my wallet since if I do need some more cash I can go to any ATM without any worry.
Last thing that I love if the deposit of checks feature on the phone. My bank had no mobile option so being able not to go to a B&M bank is quite an experience.
****I have read other reviews that checks are held before able to be withdrawn. I have NOT heard of any bank that does NOT do this. Direct Deposits are ready same day, and checks take no more that 2 business days to clear. Do not let others scare you unless you are in fact living paycheck to paycheck and maintain a zero balance.

I have had a Fidelity Cash Management account for several years and never had a bad experience. I use my iPad to deposit paper checks and ATMs to withdraw cash. I also have a Fidelity American Express and the 2% rewards are deposited directly into my cash management account. Can't remember the last time I was in a bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jus529 A Stellar Product
Unlimited ATM fee rebates, easy cash transfers to all of my Fidelity and non-Fidelity accounts, and no issues accessing my cash while traveling around the world. The Fidelity Cash Management account is the most important piece of my day-to-day financial life, the hub of my cash management. I highly recommend Fidelity to anyone interested in eliminating fees and headaches of traditional bank checking accounts. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.

I have had a Fidelity Cash Management account for about 6 years. At the beginning I was wary, thinking I would need services from a local branch that would not be available. I slowly transitioned to relying solely on this account and about 2 years ago said good bye to my traditional bank. The service associated with this account is extraordinary; what you would expect from Fidelity. Here are the perks:
1. I travel frequently. When I need cash I can use any ATM knowing I will get unlimited rebates on ATM fees. This saves me about $20 monthly.
2. If you have any paychecks direct deposited, the money becomes available the minute it is received by this bank. Essentially, if I am due to get paid on the 15th of a month, my Company processes payroll on the 14th. While most of my colleagues do not see their money until the 15th I will see my pay mid morning, shortly after payroll is processed.
3. I was concerned that without a branch if I should loose my ATM card I would be unable to access funds for many days while this was replaced. This is not the case. If I loose my card they can wire money to anywhere in the world and overnight a new card to me. This service does noe exist from any traditional bank I know of.
4. I do all of my banking via their new upgraded mobile application. For most of my payees using their bill pay service funds are received electronically the next day.
5. I had one issue of fradulant use of my debit card. This was picked up by their security department and a replacement card was sent overnight to me.
6. The only thing missing for me is the ability to deposit cash into my account.
Where Fidelity wins in my relationship is that due to this exceptional cash management system they have easily earned my investment business. I recently have come into a position where I can begin investing in IRA and traditional brokerage account. I am not looking any further than growing this great relationship they have built with me through this product.
Don't be afraid, take the leap and leave your old bank behind.

We love having a Fidelity Cash Management Account! It has eased our money handling through online banking that is fast, secure, and reliable. The free checking and all the other great services (especially the free ones) are a huge blessing to us. Thanks so much! We look forward to many more years as satisfied Fidelity customers!

I love what fidelity has done with the Cash Management account. There are a lot of features to this account such as full view that I really like to use as well as the free ATM withdrawals. I also like the fact that I can invest and use my account as a regular checking account. I have all my accounts with Fidelity (even workplace savings) and plan to continue to use them. I have given several referrals to family and friends to open a cash management account, I should be their official sponsor! :)

I started this account to replace my normal bank account, and it has everything I could ever want. Since I also use Fidelity to do my investing, I can easily transfer money between my accounts. I can easily pay my bills and accept payments online. With the mobile app, depositing checks is ludicrously simple and convenient. The one place where this account falls short is the lack of a way to deposit physical cash, but that becomes less of an issue every year. I highly recommend this account to anyone who wants to cut off your tie to a physical bank and move everything online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Fidelity Year #2 How do you spell awesome? FIDELITY
Migrating from standard Bank Accounts to a consolidated Fidelity Cash Management Account was one of our smartest, smoothest moves in years!!!
Fidelity Customer Service is awesome.
Convenience features (photo deposits) is great.
$0 ATM fees is terrific.
I set up Cash Mgmt Account (1) as normal check writing, bill paying; Cash Mgmt Accoutn (2) for annual budgetary expenses; Brokerage Account for Investing; IRA for self and spouse.
The dashboard is best way to see all Funds and the Customer Service folks are a true delight. They actually speak English too!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by gks Transactions take too long
This is a nice account in theory. But, transactions take too long to process. Withdrawing or depositing takes about a week on average for the money to clear, which is much too slow if you're thinking of using it to process rent and bill payments. Withdrawals have to be "reviewed" before they are processed for some reason. The ATM fee refund is a nice feature. You cannot deposit cash, which isn't really a big deal for me but could be inconvenient to some users.

Rated 2 out of 5 by checking account - deficient checking account
Statement reporting is very poor and there are errors. When looking at the quarterly report (where are the yearly reports) when the items are expanded all the check images do not show up. If the report is saved or printed none of the check images show up so I don't know who they are to.
I have to go back to the view and click on each check to see who it is to.
Your checking reports are quite sub-standard compared to other banks I have used before and you don't even offer a yearly report for tax purposes.

Fidelity Cash Managment Account is excellent. I don't pay any ATMS anymore as they reimburse all fees. The customer service is good too. Also they now have a 2% back Visa credit card too. I love it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick R. Easy-to-use and beneficial account with a couple limitations
The Cash Management account is a great value and easy-to-use. The automatic payback of ATM fees from other banks is a significant benefit. There are two disadvantages to the account: 1) It's not possible to deposit cash into the account, and 2) deposits into the account do have a delay of a few days before the balance of the account gets updated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Where2next Many blips need to be eliminated
All sorts of impediments to making the experience smooth. Dead accounts cannot be removed. Transactions seem to be in limbo. Can't finish some tasks and keep getting reminded to do them. Once these get ironed out, it might be OK, although still seems cumbersome compared to other banking websites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SRC So far, so good
We recently shifted over to the Fidelity CMA, and are happy with it so far. It's useful to have the investment and checking accounts in one place, which obviates the need for money transfers. All in all, we're happy; the only suggestion I'd have is to include an option to receive email notification of any transaction on the Visa card that Fidelity issues, as one of the competitors does. That competitor also provides complimentary credit tracking on a monthly basis. The two features provide a backstop against fraudulent transactions, and I'd recommend Fidelity doing the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen L. Best debit card out there
I really enjoy the cash management account and the debit card. I never noticed how many ATM fees I was being charged through out the year. Usually at the end of the year fidelity has reimbursed $40-50 which is great. Their app and website is really user friendly and their customer service is always top notch! Im writing this review as im getting my co worker singed up for the account and debit card.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ratan Do not close your Bank Account
If you think you can replace your Bank Account with Fidelity Cash Management Account think twice.
1. Bill Pay service works as advertised.
2. You can setup start page to be your CMA with ease and see your balances.
3. Fidelity is available 24/7 that you can not get from your Bank.
4. You can deposit checks up to $25k with mobile device.
5. Site is easy to navigate.
1. Check images are NOT available as proof of payment (Bill Pay Services)
2. There is simply NO means of depositing cash in to your account.
3. I closed my Bank account to simplify my life. It just got more difficult.

The account meets all my needs. My lone request would be that it would include a description in the transfer line such that, upon review of the statement, we could see the reason we did the transfer. Would definitely help during tax time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GeneB Too many problems w/ this account
nearly every week I get calls to check on "suspicious" transactions. The transactions are normal that I use every day or week such as my local banks ATM, my grocery store, frequented restaurants, etc. The calls are very annoying and sometimes reach me on my cell phone while driving! I complained with each call but they still come.
Before Xmas my debit card was denied at several places. When I called Fidelity they said they'd had a glitch and lots of cards were declined but it was fixed now and safe to use. I waited til next day to use it at my local bank's ATM and it swallowed my card!
Today waited 15' for customer service to answer. Not good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CJ Fee / transaction disclosure on the Visa card associated with the account
I used the Visa card to withdraw some cash from an ATM in Italy and when I received the statement, it only shows the withdrawal amount in U.S currency.
When I opened a cash management account, I was informed that I would be reimbursed for any ATM fees charged and I expect to see more details on the ATM transaction, including fees and conversion rate of currency. When I called to inquire about the ATM transaction, the representative told me that there's no details on your record other than the amount shown on the statement, which was not helpful. I feel that there should be more transparency on this type of transactions, which involved fees charged to customers that you claimed you would waived.

First, I will disclose that this review was solicited by Fidelity in an e-mail. However, I am answering honestly.
I do really like this account. The free checks and ATM fee refunds are outstanding! I can also have my dividends or capital gains withdrawn to this account from my other investment accounts at Fidelity.
The bill pay service, ACH/EFT service, and cash management features (overdraft protection transfers, minimum balance maintenance) are all excellent!
I would like to see Fidelity offer a slightly higher interest rate on this account, plus a "savings account" where I can hold FDIC-insured cash but not provide access to this cash via debit card or check.
