How long have you had your bank account? Is it the best account for your family? It’s time to evaluate your bank account and see!
First step is head to your bank’s website and check out their options for checking and savings accounts. Is what they are offering now comparable to what you have? If their accounts now have rewards for debit card purchases or no fees, have they adjusted your account to have the same? If not, give them a call.
The next thing to consider is changing banks all together. I changed to a local credit union in my town and they gave me a $200 bonus for switching and meeting specific qualifications. Is a bank in your area offering an incentive for switching? Check out some of the banks websites and see. Don’t just switch because the bank is offering a bonus…make sure it is the best fit for your family.
