Bangkok Bank versus Siam Commercial Bank

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have a SCB account?

 

I notice that the staff at SCB seems to be less friendly to foreigners than the staff at Bangkok Bank.

 

What's your experience on this?

Do you think such can be generalized?

Not depending on individual branch/staff?

 

MY Bangkok Bank (full) branch is more competent than the SCB micro branch. But that's not necessarily surprising.

 

Well, you could construct something from the different history, ownership and executive staff.

From this, SCB would be the Thai Airways of banks :whistling:

 I have a SCB account for more than 10 years, 3 different branches, nothing to blame  , nothing to complaint , nice and smiling women, but because it's up country, they don't speak good English , better to speak Thai with them

I have SCB and Bangkok Bank.  I use SCB online and Bangkok Bank for my Social Security and Fixed deposit accounts.

Because of their commercial branches in NYC and London, Bangkok Bank is often a winner for expats from those countries for the ease of making foreign funds transfers.  Their branches in areas with high expat populations have staff with good foreign language skills, especially the branches in malls with extended hours.

I've never used SCB online, but I have used Bangkok Bank and Kasikorn Bank online and find Bangkok Bank to be much better.  Actually Bangkok Bank online is much better than my online U.S. credit union.

Bangkok Bank is far superior to SCB in every way there is no comparison.

Bangkok Bank always gives me a better exchange rate then scb, always seem friendly, plus it's one of the only bank that will let me use my chipless mastercard.
