Banking; Are you still paying for the privilege of Banking and depositing your funds into your bank and having a checking account. Do you pay crazy fees for ATM services or a savings account? Banks are scrambling in this market to get more depositors. Take a look at what you are paying for monthly fees. If you are paying anything STOP and SHOP for a new bank or sometimes it’s just a matter of changing the type of account you have at your current bank. They are not going to tell you, you need to ask for FREE checking, FREE ATM, FREE Savings. Even business accounts in some banks are FREE so ask.
If they don’t offer it go somewhere that does. Check out the online banks they are offering some great deals. I’ve listed some interesting sites for savings and budgeting.
