 What bank do you use and why?
topic by deem650 - 11-26-2012, 06:44 PM


I am currently on Wells Fargo and plan to get another job and set up a direct deposit. I am thinking about switching banks, what banks do you guys use and why? Also does anyone have any recommendations on a good bank with good rates for a savings account?

Navy Federal Credit Union & Chase. With navy fed you dont have to deal with the bull#### of regular banks if you get a charge from somewhere or an overdraft all you have to do is call and they will remove it with no problems. They have both secured & unsecured credit cards auto loans etc. and you can get one as long as you have atleast $500 in your savings. Only way you can get one is to be in the same household as a vet or be a spouse of someone with an account already. The downside is they dont have many branch locations or its located on a base. Chase I have because of branch locations & you can connect an outside bank to your account & transfer money between accounts both chase & non-chase bank accounts. I can also use my paypal account to do the same since I have the pappal debit card & you get cashback at the end of the month. Also have a couple prepaid cards lol. I just keep accounts based on different scenarios. For instance if I have to do something where i need to get a deposite right away I can use a moneypak and load it to paypal or a prepaid instead of waiting 2-3 business days. Its also a good way to manage what your spending keeping certain amounts separate. Good savings apy's stop yrs ago lol.

I'm with Amegy Bank (local in Texas) just because it's the closest to me. I don't care about the interest. And I don't use the bank that much either. Most of my money is with Etrade.

But Capital One has one of the highest interest rates for savings account. Around 1.1%. Ally Bank is good too around 1%.

HSBC/Chase
HSBC cause I used to work there. They also HAD a high yield savings acct but it is current like the other banks. I will close soon cause lack of locations.

Chase cause I work here. Though I have no problems with them, I wont make them my primary until i leave.

I'm with Wells, they have banks everywhere coast to coast, except Lousiana I believe. Have no reason to move really, don't hate them and don't love them.

If you're looking for interest rates, it might be worth looking at bankrate.com. They have a bunch of different things you can search for on there.

I have Ally and they are the same way, no atm fees no matter where you get money from. I feel sorry for anyone that uses a bank that doesn't have a debit card like this. Ally also has electronic checking where you can scan your checks in from any computer to deposit them. Ally also has really good interest rate for a checking account .75%
