      They lost enough since the credit union had to move to a bigger location, when going to B of A they are offering all kind of promotions high maintenance fee. I guess you have allot of money for their fees and are not one of the people who count on every penny they earn.

    They'll find something else to charge you for!

    I believe Suntrust has also dropped their pan to charge $5 a month for customers to use their own money. Wonder if Suntrust is still going to charge a $15 maintenance fee for customers with a money market account of less than $5,000. Needless to say, I took my $ and my business elsewhere.

    The people have spoken! But its too late because those money hungry banks have lost a huge amount of customers over this non-sense. But you can bet they will find another way to get that $5 fee anyway, dequised as something else. Wasn't BOA, one of the banks that cried & got gov't assistance last year? And aren't they the ones who pay their CEOs a ton of money & offer huge bonuses & perks? Well good enough for your poor little bank, tell your sob story to someone who really cares, your customers don't cause they've been ripped off long enough.

    So the debit card fee is dropped, it will result in a higher monthly fee. Glad we switched
