When You Put Customers First, Good Things Happen

Share this article

After a year (OK, more like two years!) of ups and downs, we’re probably not the only ones looking for things to celebrate. And we’re delighted that 2021 brought a few nice wins our way. 

Whether streamlining the personal loan approval process or offering a variety of savings products for your financial goals, like building up an emergency fund or saving for a dream home, at Marcus we want to help make all things “money” a little easier.

And when you design products that put customers first, it looks like others take notice! 

With that said, let’s dive into our round up of 2021-2022’s awards. 

Marcus by Goldman Sachs Awards

NerdWallet Best-Of Awards

Our products won three of NerdWallet’s 2022 Best-Of Awards. We’re taking home the gold so to speak for:

  • Best Savings Account: Marcus by Goldman Sachs
  • Best Bank or Credit Union for CDs: Marcus by Goldman Sachs
  • Best Personal Loan from a Bank: Marcus by Goldman Sachs


Marcus snagged NerdWallet’s “Best Personal Loan from a Bank” award three years in a row. We would like to thank all of our customers for their input and feedback. Without it, we would not have the personalized digital banking products we strive to offer.

Bankrate Awards

In addition to NerdWallet recognizing Marcus’ Personal Loan offering, we were also named Bankrate’s number one pick for Best Online Personal Loan Lender.

We know personal loans are often used to help people make their goals a reality, even if they can’t finance that goal upfront.

That’s why Marcus Personal Loans have no fees, and come with a fixed APR. Plus, our lending customers get rewarded for making payments on time.

After all, who doesn’t love being rewarded for doing the right thing?

And a few more awards…

Marcus also ranked in GOBankingRates’ Best Banks list in three categories including: Best Online Bank, Best Savings Account, and Best CD Account.

Plus, we were also recognized by for the Best High Yielding Savings Account of 2021.

At Marcus, we know how important it is to have a solid savings account, whether you’re looking to finance your next major vacation, saving up for a wedding, or even your kids’ college education.

Whatever your savings goals are, we could help you reach them with competitive rates on Marcus Online Savings Accounts and term lengths from 6 months to 6 years for Marcus High-Yield CDs.

When it comes to reaching your money goals, flexibility and plenty of options for how you save can be a game-changer.

One last thanks

We’re honored that, in total, that’s five awards for our Savings and CD Accounts, two for Marcus Personal Loans offerings, and one for best online bank. 

After this last year, we can’t help but feel grateful for our customers, whose feedback helps us create and fine tune our products.

Thank you for trusting us to be your banking partner. 

After making 12 or more consecutive monthly payments, you can defer one payment as long as you have made all of your prior payments in full and on time. We will waive any interest incurred during the deferral, and extend your loan by one month (you will pay interest during this extra month). Your payments resume as usual the month after the deferral. You must request a deferral at least 16 days before the payment you want to defer is due.
