Great Ways To Avoid Bank Fees

Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 12:26 PM

Some good suggestions like get overdraft fee waived, go with credit unions, etc..  Some addtional care should be taken on:

inactivity fee (make regular deposit/withdrawal to avoid such a fee)

account closure fee

monthly fee (especially when you have only CDs in the sadi bank)

Beware of any "hidden fee" until it hits you

If a bank is well-known in charging all kind of fees (knowingly or unknowingly), you had better vote with your feet; go with a customer-friendly credit union or bank (to prevent you from future shock waves).
