Finally got around to switching my checking account over to a free account--except for charges on "foreign" ATM machines. I anticipated that the bank rep would try to talk me out of the switch, but she didn't. She did, though, " by the way" mention the ATM charges just as I was ready to stand up and leave. And she did try to get me to sign up for the bank's system of paying bills online which I 'm sure they make money from. I do pay many bills online, but not on the bank's online system. Actually, my bank is pretty good, still rather small, but you just feel you can't stay ahead of their methods. Am I cynical??
Deprived my bank of $18 a month, thank you very much!
