Bank Transfer Day comes to a climax tomorrow. It is an initiative to encourage people to move their banking from the casino banks to community-based credit unions and local banks.
I don't need to do a thing because I, and my circle of family and friends, went "credit union" many years ago. I've hardly paid a fee for anything in over a decade. The two mega banks I had used prior were trying to give my accounts a slow death by a thousand cuts. Just the fees from one checking account alone could have bought two people a nice restaurant meal once a month.
So there! Done done Bank Transfer Day over a decade early. :cheers: The savings can buy me a lot of beer.
And yes, the credit unions often have free candy in the lobby. 😀
One caveat: not all credit unions are equal. Some are big banks in credit union clothing. Watch out for those.
