Budget Living: Online Checking Account

Posted By Jessica Fisher On October 31, 2008 @ 8:04 am In Budget Living | 3 Comments

[4] Recently, we established a new checking account. With banking turmoil the way it is these days, it’s not as simple as it used to be. I never used to think about which bank I chose, except for which was closest to home, or on the way home from work. However, after consulting with a friend in the banking industry, we decided to go with Bank of America. I procrastinated for a few weeks because it seemed like such a hassle to coordinate a time for both FishPapa and I to enter a branch office together without six screaming monkeys hanging on to us.

I finally checked to see if I could start the account online. Not only could I open the account from the privacy of my own home, but there were several advantages to doing so, one being that BofA would waive the monthly fee. Well, that $7 a month adds up, doesn’t it? By, initiating our account online we saved ourselves $84 for the year.

Plus, I didn’t have to take six screaming monkeys to the bank. That’s worth something right there.
