Choosing a Bank

By Christopher Schonberger

  • Beware the fees – Big banks earn a lot of revenue for charging customers for services they don't really want. Read the fine print before you make your choice and be on the lookout for minimum balance fees, ATM fees, checking fees, and bounced check fees.
  • The credit trap – The easiest way to plunge yourself into debt is to start swiping plastic like a maniac and later discovering you have no money to pay for it at the end of the month. Don't treat credit cards as if they were free money—they're not!
  • Switching banks – If you are switching banks, make sure all you have your ducks in order first (e.g., make sure all checks have cleared, notify your employer of the change if you receive payment by direct deposit, etc.).
  • Being suspicious of “banking” is a time-honored tradition that dates back to the days of ancient Greece, when gold was horded in temples by lecherous, inbred priests (at least according to the movie 300). Sometime later, Adam Smith used his “invisible hand” to invent capitalism

    , or, as it’s now known, “eBay,” and banks resembling the ones we know today were born.

    Things are pretty well regulated these days, but it is still good to bring a healthy amount of wariness to the process of choosing the right bank. Bear in mind that banks make up to 40% of their revenue from the fees they charge on consumer accounts. Like going to the movies, the “feature presentation” (i.e., an account) lures us in and then they turn the screws with overpriced concessions like Swedish Fish and Milk Duds (the banking equivalent of extraneous charges for things we only sort of want).

    Getting kicked off the rents’ account sucks, as does cutting ties with the “Bank of West Hicksville” that gave out free Nalgenes during freshman-year orientation. But it’s time to move on. Like many things that are boring in life, choosing a personal banks seems like an arduous task, but a little research and effort can lead to a lot of saved time and money down the line.

    Pick an Account, Any Account

    Bank accounts are a dime a dozen, and when it comes to basic options most of the major players offer pretty similar terms. Still, you should familiarize yourself with the popular types of accounts before proceeding. It’s worth pointing out that the ability to write checks becomes a lot more important in post-college life when you’re paying rent and other bills, so make sure you will not have to pay extra fees to write the number of checks you need each month.

    Basic Checking Account

    • No minimum balance
    • Can write checks
    • Keep money safe but earn little or no interest

    Negotiable Order of Withdrawal (NOW) Checking

    • Earn interest as long as a minimum balance is maintained
    • Can write checks
    • Pay penalty fee for dipping below min. balance

    Savings Account

    • Earn higher interest (around 5%)
    • No check writing...
