Firstly, I just wanted to say that I'm a real person and not an employee of Scottrade or anything.
My fiancee and I both have bank accounts with Scottrade. If you have a normal bank and are sick and tired of the "banker's hours" and the nonchalant charging of your account and the poor customer service, consolidate your assets and move to this bank. No fees, no nonsense. Local brokerage branches are everywhere. You can always get in touch with a real person without navigating through millions of automated call options. During operating hours, your local branch will get all your requests and will even call you by name (if they know you well enough). I can't say enough good things about these guys. But maybe that's because of where we have come from.
My fiancee and I have recently gotten engaged and were looking to start a joint brokerage, banking, and savings accounts. Here is where the story begins. We both have had so many negative experiences with banks -- and I'm just your above-average Joe. I have no credit card debt, no outstanding balances, I have a great credit score, and I float at least a 2k balance in my account a month. I go to school full time and I work full time. My fiancee has just recently graduated law school, and is working as well.
I got so tired of the bankers hours, the mistakes the bank made and the horrible customer service. We both have banked with BB&T, CB&T, and Bank of America. I have to say, Scottrade makes these guys look pathetic. Let's be honest.
For people that are nervous about switching to a bank that does most of its business online, don't be afraid. It's well worth it -- I guarantee you'll like them more than you do your current bank.
