Santander Bank is based in Boston, Massachusetts but is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Spanish company Santander Group. Formerly known as Sovereign Bank, the company underwent rebranding to the Santander name in 2013. Customers can visit their bank at over 700 branch locations in the American northeast, as well as 2,300 ATMs. Nearly half of the company's ATMs are located in CVS, a pharmacy that also has roots in the northeast. Several of its branch locations were purchased from the short-lived FleetBoston after the merger between BankBoston and Fleet Financial.

Santander Bank offers everything from basic savings and checking accounts to credit, investing assistance and multiple borrowing options. Santander Bank will even help you to protect your assets through a wide array of insurance services, such as life insurance, renters' insurance and even identity protection.

Plan for your financial future with the help of a Santander Bank banker and rest assured that you will be financially secure and well protected.
SANTANDER BANK HAS INCOMPETANT AND RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS AT THEIR CALL CENTERS, AND THAT'S 100% OF THE TIME. WHEN I CALL TO ASK THEM TO RECTIFY A PROBLEM THEY CAUSED, THEY HANG UP, TOO MUCH FOR THEM TO DO I GUESS - LAZY, AND IT WAS A SIMPLE REQUEST....WHERE DOES THIS BANK FIND THESE FOLKS??
My Santander VISA card gets blocked arbitrarily and without notice every time I take a trip. Fed up with 'security measures' which make me feel insecure because I never know when my card will be declined. No stars for Santander VISA. Go with AMEX instead.
