We really like the Bank of Travelers Rest. A local bank with locations in Travelers Rest and Greenville. Very friendly folks, easy to deal with. Seem to offer everything the big-box banks have. Free-checking and more. Sensitive to business banking needs and personal accounts. Have accounts at several banks in UpState but Bank of Travelers Rest is the best.

I am a customer of BB&T, Carolina First, and Travelers Rest Bank. I can honestly say that I do not care much for BB&T's service or helpfulness (I didn't choose them but my husband had a pre-existing account when we got married), Carolina First is okay but they were just recently bought out and I am considering moving my accounts. Travelers Rest was very helpful and I have no complaints about their service or accessibility. BB&T was the only one I strongly do not like, and with Carolina First I am concerned with the turn over to the new owners.

Looks like Palmetto is where I'll go first. Thanks for all of the input, and thanks for not telling me how much your old bank up north was LOL!

Care to share the link to the site?

I have no complaints in my personal dealings with B of A. I REALLY like being able to travel and use ATMs anywhere in the country without incurring extra fees! I've just found it really easy to bank with B of A.

You're lucky BofA is good up there, it's a whole other story in SOFLA. I wouldn't bank with them if my life depended on it in SOFLA. My DD does have an account there only because they were one of the few banks that had branches in SOFLA and where she went to college in New England, BUT in SOFLA, they do not leave out deposit or withdrawal slips. You have to ask for one. Why? They say due to fraud. What the heck are you going to do with a deposit/withdrawal slip that's fraudulent? If I want to put CASH in her account, I have to show ID. PUT cash, not withdrawal cash. You walk in and they ask you at the door what you are there to do - doesn't matter if there's a ton of people around, like you want everyone to know your banking business. It's beyond ridiculous!

I've been to the BofA up there and it's definitely like night and day from the ones down here - thankfully. I still have to go for my DD and don't mind it at all up there but down here, I dread going.

Glad at least the experience here is better! Regarding deposit slips, etc... You can now deposit thru ATMs without deposit slips/envelopes at all at B of A (I believe Wachovia/Wells Fargo are offering this now as well).
