When I first came to Austin, I needed a local bank and literally found the first one I drove by. I unfortunately picked Wells Fargo. I after 6 years became tired of the lackluster service, fees, and the straw the broke the camel’s back was the inability to get a safety deposit box near my location and the cost of said deposit box was 30 bucks a month. So I started researching other banks and I found Wachovia. I first chose them because of the no cashier check fees, no ATM fees(even at other banks), free safety deposit bank, free checks. All this is with a minimum 4000 account balance. The most important thing though is the service. You get a personal banker that can help you make transfers on the phone and in general just help you with any of your banking needs. I know I sound like the commercial, but I just don’t understand a lot of my friends who stick with their old bank just because its hard to changes some direct deposit information. I thought the same thing until I saw how much better Wachovia is.
