I've never understood why anyone would have accounts at B of A. Their fees have always been high and their rates on deposits stink. My bank is paying about 5.2 on savings, checking is free, no ATM fees, and ATM fees charged by other banks are credited back to your account - even if you're in Russia and get hosed for $20 at an ATM.

Where are you banking at Petrov?
First Republic. It's a fairly small operation with branches in California and New York. Meryl Lynch is buying them, so I'm waiting to see if they louse up the operation although they say the bank will remain independant. Other than that Washington Mutual is still way better than B of A (and Citibank - the chew too).

I think that bank of america was giving out credit cards to illegal aliens in the past.

If you don't have a convenient bank that has free checking and ATM, try a credit union. You no longer have to meet any particular membership requirements and they're almost always easier and cheaper to deal with.
