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.

This cash management account for our daily household account works just as advertised. Easy to use. A good number of automatic features. On line control. And the feature I really like is the reporting of deposits, checks, etc., that hit the account during the day are shown immediately and noted as pending, etc. Good up to the minute information. Over all an excellent money management account.

Completely satisfied will all aspects of the cash management account. Very easy to move money in/out, pay bills and quickly find important information. The mobile app for depositing checks is very useful and the recent camera upgrade makes the process a snap! I replaced two traditional bank accounts with the Fidelity account and money management is much easier now.

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****I have read other reviews that checks are held before able to be withdrawn.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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scotty75FL Leave your brick and mortar bank behind
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 5 out of 5 by Keith Great Account. . . once it was up and working
Once the account was up and running, it has been convenient and reliable. And has saved me plenty in ATM fees here in my hometown,
The problem came when as a long-time (greater than a decade) Fidelity Investment account holder I also wanted to open a CMA. I decided to drive all across town to a Fidelity office figuring it would be more troublefree to work with a human than to do it online. That was very wrong. Turned out to be very slow and bureaucratic and encountered a lot of hesitation over the very legitimate name I was using that was also, and still is, on my Investment account. Got it straightened out, but the local office was a hassle. Won't do that again! Should have set it up online.

When my bank of 20+ years sold my account to someone else and disappeared from the local area, I decided it was time to try something new. Instead of another local bank, I choose Fidelity Cash Management, since most of my other financial assets were with Fidelity. So far, it's been a seamless transition. the few ATM charges I've incurred have been promptly reimbursed, and automatic payments and direct deposits were easy to set up. The one caveat, if you need face to face services (such as the purchase of foreign currency for a trip) I'm unclear how that would be handled.

Very convenient and efficient application and account set up
No ATM fees
Works very well worldwide
Helpful tech support
Limited online & app features
Need to call in to talk to a representative to add travel information, which is very time consuming (a waste of time on both sides) and should be something manageable on the website or through app
Can't easily set up international transfer
1% foreign transaction fee

We have had an issue with using the debit card internationally. I would suggest that Fidelity find a new issuer and also add an ATM only card for safety purposes. The debit card does not offer the same safety features that a credit card offers and is not a good substitute for a credit purchase. The ATM only card is much safer.
