Happy with my bank here in NYC, but if my move happens, I'll need to change since they're strictly an east coast operation. Hoping to get some suggestions for a new bank from locals. Thanks in advance.

Just avoid the giants like Bank of America and Wells. Lots of good credit unions to choose from.

I got used to having ATMs every couple of blocks, but I guess my companies credit union is an option.

Most credit unions give you x number of free atm withdrawals form other banks, plus, with the availability of cash back at virtually every store, atms aren't so necessary.

Last time I checked, NC was still considered east coast....... but

We bank at Wells, First Citizens, Fifth/Third and SECU (state employees credit union).

They all have certain benefits for us, but if I were to choose just one solely based on all-round banking services, it would be the SECU.

Wells Fargo has more locations and therefore more convenient.
Fifth/Third is small and not so convenient.
First Citizens clings to some antiquated ways and causes me some aggravations on occasion, although the tellers are among the most friendly and turnover is low so you see the same people month after month.

This is too funny. I clicked on my go to forum for Las Vegas and somehow this thread posted to N.C. I'd never have known if not for that last post.

If it helps, I'm in San Diego. I'm guessing Las Vegas is similar, but here in San Diego Bank of America and Wells Fargo seem to be the most prominent banks, followed perhaps by Citibank (about a 45 second walk from my house is a 7 Eleven, which has a Citibank ATM). There's also a major credit union for San Diego County. I imagine there is something comparable in Las Vegas.

Wells and BofA are the biggest here also. Wells East Coast operations with 3 buildings uptown, CIC, and 5-6 other office buildings in Charlotte along with BofA headquarters and multiple buildings. They both have a ton of locations and ATM, along with BB&T, SunTrust, Charlotte Metro, Trulaint, and other banks.
