If you're looking to open a simple checking account, go with bank of america! They are great!!! Not only do they have convenient no charge atm everywhere you go (down in subways, in mall, airport etc), they offer great online banking services!!! Plus, the customer service is super smooth and very efficient!
A great big plus is that when bank of america offer 0% charge over-sea international atm withdrawals in several countries! I recently travelled to china, and boa is partner with one of the better bank branches of china - constructional bank - i was able to use it for free!! And boa keeps great security, i never had a single problem, rather, they would be monitoring my online banking activities 24/7! I love it!!! Go with bank of america!
Very poor customer service. Do credit checks with out intimating customer
While i was a student they gave me secondary account for free and later they have been charging 12 $ monthly fee and i had direct deposit setup for primary account. When i asked for refund they are saying they can't.
Who asked secondary account,they gave it for free and keep on charging since an year.
