I woke up this morning and logged on to my bank account as I do frequently, checking that my weekend purchases went through and registered correctly. To my surprise, there was a $12 "service fee". Since I deposited my paycheck Friday, there was absolutely no reason any of my recent transactions should have had an issue. So, first thing this morning I called the bank.
Guess what? They are instituting a $12 MONTHLY fee. TWELVE DOLLARS A MONTH. $144 A YEAR. Just for letting them borrow my money? I don't think so! I have had a "free" checking account with Chase for years so I'm a bit pissed.
This monthly fee can be waived, if you have an average daily or monthly (or something) of $5K. Yea right. It also doesn't apply if you have some sort of direct deposit. Well I don't, nor do I have the option to with my current job...I didn't with the job before this, or the one before that....
So, seriously? I'm mad! I have all my bills auto-paid through Chase but I guess now I'll have to switch banks. Any suggestions?!
