We like where we do banking. We’ve been banking there ever since our daughter was in elementary school. In fact, the reason that we opened a checking account there was because she won a $50 savings account from that bank for reading the most books in our library’s Summer Reading Program years ago. We’ve banked there ever since.
I know some people are not satisfied with their banks, though, because of high fees. If you are one of those people, you might want to look into opening a checking account from WaMu, especially if you want great free services with no monthly fee, free ATM cash withdrawals (foreign and domestic), free checks for life, and free identity theft services.
