Some Quirky Ways Banks Attract New Customers

Occasionally, the My Bank Tracker team will come across a few deals that take a different approach when compared to the competition. These banks understand their customers so well that they go beyond the simple $$ offer and create some truly quirky incentives.  Here is a list of some of the more recent ones we have found:
