Why Would You Bank Anywhere Else? Great Bank!

Nice people to deal with, friendly, easy to talk to. Always prompt response to any questions, their checking account pays 2.5% with no fees, how can you go wrong?

Bank Here!

This bank is the best - you get a friendly people that you can talk to, always a person on the phone and not a "press 1, 2, 3". Their interest rate for the checking account is incredible, and they refund your ATM fees. I would never bank at any of Banks of America, Chase etc., after banking with these folks. No complaints.
