Opened an account today at a Texas branch. Note that there are some fees to be concerned about (Billpay not free after 12 months, savings account has a fee if you don't maintain a minimum balance (don't recall the required balance, but it's several hunded dollars). But the CSR was very friendly and waived the savings account fee for me (again, for 12 months). She said the Access Checking account would have a $10 monthly fee without the direct deposit (can also be waived w/ a minimum balance). I also got the first box of checks free upon request. So the bottom line is that the account will no longer be fee-free after 12 months. But I had a pretty positive overall first impression.

In case anyone is wondering why I'm commenting on the savings account fees ... the overdraft protection for the $100 requires a Comerica credit card or a savings account.

My comerica branch in Sterling Heights, MI didn't give me any information about this bonus. All they told me was that I was eligible. So, I signed up for a checking account but I had to get all my information about the bonus from this web page. I guess they'll do whatever they can to keep me from getting the bonus...
