Goodbye US Bank
October 18, 2011
I opened my first checking account, by my parents guidance, before I was 18 years old. When it was time for me to get my first credit card, I went to US Bank. As a result, I’ve had both a checking account and credit card with them for quite some time. For my checking account that is something around 10 years of being a loyal customer. My credit card is slightly less, at around 7 years, but I’ve never missed a payment. Hell, they’ve raised my credit limit to levels affectionately titled “ludicrous” (Editor’s note: Seriously.). All this and yet still I’ve closed out my accounts. Why? Because they want to charge me $6.95 a month just for the privilege of being a customer (Editor’s notes: Specifically: a checking account)? Yeah, I don’t think so.
