I had this local bank when I lived in Wisconsin. I ended up getting transfered out of state and ended up having to move to a bigger bank because I wanted to have something that I could go to right away. Wow how I miss my original bank. First thing is my local bank almost had no fee's when it came to setting up accounts or checks which the big bank does. Also there have been a few times when I have had to call customer service and the local bank someone would pick up from one of the branch's and was super helpful. With the big bank if I call in I keep getting routed all over the place and end up spending 45 minutes on a simple 5 minute issue. Also every time I now go into my big bank they are always trying to sell me on getting credit cards which I do not want. My local bank knew me and knew what my interests where and how I wish I could go back to them.
Associated bank is a hometown bank with a hometown feel to it. You can get the logo of the Brewers or the Packers on your debit card. I chose the Brewers because I'm a bit "Packered" to death here in Green Bay. I think there are some kind of sports perks with the cards, but I 'm not interested in them. I chose it because I could get free checking with direct deposit and because they had a branch very near my house. It's handy to have an actual teller close at hand who can do things for me simply such as cash a check or make a deposit. It's never crowded and the tellers are always friendly. They also have a branch in a super market I shop frequently, so that's super handy. They only thing I have ever disliked is the marketers at the supermarket branch were once overly aggressive in approaching shoppers. Several people complained to the store management and put a stop to it so that was the end of that problem. I don't use them for short-term savings because I get better rates online, but I love having them for day-to-day banking needs.
