Bye Bye Fleet?

Bank of America: Three's a Crowd?

After reading this article, I definitely think it may be time to leave Fleet. I have had nothing but issues with them over the years (the remark about them being last in customer service did not surprise me in the least) and this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Basically, the article says that Bank of America still hasn't fully integrated the systems from their merger with NationsBank many years ago and now they are adding Fleet to the mix. Sounds like it is going to be a nightmare to try and continue to use them, especially when travelling, as not all BoA machines are compatible.

So, anyone have any suggestions on a bank? My biggest needs? Well, first and foremost is to have an online banking application rival to Homelink (Fleet's Online banking). Second, would have to be free/cheap ATMs. I use the ATM all the time and having to pay $1.50 each time I used one that wasn't from that bank would drive me nuts.

Hey man, nice site!

Talk to Alan Chhabra at work. His mom works at Citizens and can set you up with an account with greatly reduced fees or possibly without fees altogether. Citizens does offer an online check service that is pretty nice. They even do some e-bill services as well.

Citizens is also a member of the SUM network so you don't have to pay fees at any SUM ATM.
