What nerve!  They get rid of their tellers, pay savers practically NO interest and then they want to drive up to our apts or homes and rub it in our faces with a Mercedes??  The only way I would agree to that is to have them bring an extra Mercedes to park in our lot for us!  This takes the cake.  They sure can afford fancy cars probably with the salaries they are making on our backs.  There is no way in Hades, Chase would have the nerve to drive up to my door. What happened to Ford Escorts?  They are too good to show up in an Escort?  All this does is give them the chance to fire more people and close our banks.  This has to be a joke.

When they only pay 0.60% APY on a 5-year CD they can afford to make house calls in Mercedes vehicles.
