Man, I haven't heard of a People's or Dime's Savings Bank since... maybe since I left high school. A lot of the smaller banks got swallowed up. I know that the first account I started was with Washington Mutual, and that's where I would've preferred to stay, except Chase took over. The banks I know of off the top of my head are Apple Savings Bank, Bank of America, Emigrant Savings Bank, Capital One, Chase, CitiBank, TD Ameritrade Bank and Wells Fargo.
I dunno, TD might sound all right. At least, the minimum balance to avoid fees is below $500. :/
There are some credit unions where I live, but they're very tiny things and I'm not sure about their hours. I get home very late from work, 7:30 p.m., usually, and it isn't like there are a lot of branches where I can make deposits. emo
I checked my account and they just had the nerve to hit me with a "maintenance fee." $12. Because I had less than $500 in my checking account at the time.
Look. I don't make $500 a week. My payday isn't that sweet. I have rent to pay, which means my checking account balance is gonna drop even further today after work. And you want to penalize me because I don't have enough of my money for your liking? Well, you know what, Chase Bank? ******** you. You're not the only bank to exist. I'm closing my account this weekend. ******** 'em. I hate them.
I am Lord Elwrind! Better watch out or I will WASH you away in wind and rain! So if you tempt my ire, BEWARE!
Do NOT beg of me wot of your whims! Pity the pions that do!
As with my wife, Nyadriel, I will give only if it suits meh.
And do NEVER to pretend to be Gaian Staff! And NEVER to try your hand in theft! For if you do, prepare for my wrath! For I WILL enjoy reporting you!
On me pirate ship, the Blarney Stone Blaggard, I soon be weighing anchor upon the shores of me Island once forsook long time a fore when the world was yet young. I shall set foot upon the land and take what soon be mine as I lay claim to that what be.
