Re: ATMs - Observations
Commerce Bank (NY/NJ/PA) not only doesn't charge you for using other ATMs, but refunds up to $5 a month of what other ATMs charge you. (Don't know what their policy is regarding other banks' customers using their own ATMs.) God I miss Commerce Bank. The guy who ran it went on the policy that banks should be as user-friendly as fast food restaurants. They're open late, they're open on Sunday, there are no fees or minimum balances for a checking account...I had both a checking and savings account there and they were utterly delightful. They spread like wildfire; I'm hoping they go national at some point.
Washington Mutual used to be pretty good about fees but I think they've changed that. They have other evil practices too.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
