The Bank Of Greene County (A Community Bank) Is The Way To Go !

I have had many accounts over the years with numberous banks, nearly all of which were held at large national banks such as B of A and Citizens Bank.

I stumbled upon The Bank of Greene County due to a friend and never thought I would bank there, just hadn't crossed my mind as an option I guess.

Not only did I get a free IPOD during the IPOD promo give-away, The Bank of Greene County gives me 5.00% on my checking and savings account(s) up to a total balance of 1000.00 per account (allowed to have 4). Free checking accounts at many national banks are starting to vanish, but not at Greene County - still completely free.

In addition to a totally free account that earns 5.00% interest, I also earn hundreds of bonus points through the VISA rewards program associated with my debit card  that Greene County participates in. I earn 100 points for each account, and for things like direct deposit, using online banking, bill pay, etc - up to a total of 1000 bonus points per month on top of points for using my debit card.

The only downside is there aren't many branches in my area but all in all, its a very rewarding relationship and I'm glad I came across The Bank of Greene County -
