Better bank?

Has to be a WIPO; I don't know the US banks anymore. I just need a no-fee chk/svg w/ on-line checks & reasonable' int'l ATM charges.   2 votes - 100 %

I bank with USAA, a non-profit that serves members of the military and their relatives (thanks to my father-in-law's post-Korea, pre-Vietnam service in the Navy.)

Minimal fees, interest bearing and good service.

There is no regular income going into the accounts, which are needed for
  • Credit/debit card
  • US$ payments via check sent by/from bank through Web banking
  • ATM for US$ & emergency
Any account I open now I have to be able to do from over here, because I don't see flying over there again.

woof.

Strange. My CU does all of that. by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #8 Thu Mar 27, 2014 at 09:24:06 AM EST
Also, if you qualify for USAA, they routinely serve people living in Germany, from their HQ in Texas.

I say fuck the banks, and fuck fiat currency.

for what it's worth, this stance may or may not be a useful one.
