Yesterday (Wednesday) I opened a new savings account and checking account at a local Credit Union!!
I've already set up all my bill pay stuff, switched over my paypal bank account, and have my paycheck direct deposit going to my new checking account,
and things like that. I'm just now waiting for personal checks and my credit/debit card.
Once I get that, then I'll be ready to close my Bank of America accounts!!
I'm interested to see if they ask why. My answer: "Your Corporate owners pushed it too far. I don't appreciate being treated like I'm lucky to do
business with you. I'm here to send a clear message that it was the Bank of America corporation who was lucky to be doing business with me. The only
way for them to get the message is by me closing my accounts."
I've been with Bank of America for 12 years.
My new local Credit Union is non-profit. So they don't have to answer to anyone BUT their customers. Plus it's locally owned, keeps more money in my
state & county. Most importantly, FREE CHECKING!!!
