I know there was a thread on here about banks. That's why I went with US Bank. I am not entire thrilled. May I hear more opinions? What about Fifth Third -- aside from the convenience of branches in Krogers? What about PNC?

Thanks, Jeanne

I would probably consider a credit union before a bank. Try to find one that uses either CU24 or Co-op which will give you access to hundreds of credit unions.

For banks, River City Bank and Central Bank are options if you would prefer a smaller bank.

I recommend that you stay away from the "national" banks. While BB&T seems to be an exception to that, I can highly recommend Stock Yards, Republic, The Bank--Oldham County, L&N Federal Credit Union, and many good comments have been said about River City Bank as well.

I prefer credit unions. We will be moving to the area soon. Any suggestions for a good credit union in the Prospect area?

Thanks!

I will let my wife do the talking:

I still have an account with L & N and really like their service and rates. I have been especially impressed with the long tenure of their branch managers, which speaks well of their leadership. At first, they had very few locations; however, their new location on Highway 22 in the Summit area is a welcome addition. You might also give the newcomer Jackie Pennington's name since we see her a lot at Oldham Chamber events and I thought I saw her at the Kentucky Realtor Convention last week.

You know. . .I'd heard that credit unions were a good idea in these troublous times. . .I'll see what I can do.

Sorry you're in Alexandria. Raised my kids in the Metro DC area and now I can't believe I ever lived there. Gaaawwwwddd! Be brave.

Oh, good. Thanks. I'm glad to know they're up by the Summit. I sorta know where that is. Really appreciate the input from everyone.

I've been really happy with National City -- I've never been a fan of PNC -- so I'm worried what is going to happen.

I'm sorry i'm here too but I'm inching ever closer to freedom.

Like Tomocox said, avoid the national banks with BB&T being the lone exception.
