It seems to be a continuing news headline that Bank fees are on the rise.
Checking accounts have been getting more expensive, as banks hike monthly costs, ATM charges and overdraft fees, according to a survey of more than 100 banks by bank comparison website MoneyRates.com
Given that so many are on tight budgets, it is not surprising that people look for alternatives. That is why the credit union movement is growing apace.
Anywhere in the US you can find a branch of a credit union not far from where you are. Just tap in a local Google search for a credit union with the city name and you will easily find a branch that can meet your needs.
Perhaps this is the time you should be doing some research to find the best alternative for your financial needs.
