Okay, now I'm cranky. I'm trying to find a bank, and I thought my desires were modest, but apparently not so. All I ask is:
- no minimum balance
- no monthly fees
- at least ten checks per month
- at least one ATM in downtown Chicago, or no fee for using other ATM's
You wouldn't think this would be difficult to accomplish, but Citibank and Bank of America don't offer such checking accounts, and Wells Fargo, which does, doesn't have any offices (or ATM's) in Chicago. Argh. I'll open an account with B of A if I have to, and maintain the stupid $500 minimum balance to avoid monthly fees, but it bugs me. If anyone knows of any decent alternatives around here, let me know, please.
What's annoying me most is that I don't think B of A is so stingy with their offer in California; I had an account with them there, and I don't remember any monthly fees or minimum balances. Grumble grumble grumble.
