USAA - everything under the sun and managed investment accts
Wachovia - managed investment accts
Suntrust - local convenience
PenFed - local convenience
Overseas Accts
Safe

LOVE USAA for everything (Inv, Banking, Insurance, etc) and should prob consolidate all accounts with them, but we still like to use the brick and mortar banks avail locally as well.

Better watch those overseas accounts!!!

Last I heard, if you have more than $250K in a Swiss bank, they are going to rat you out to the IRS.

Over the years, I've thought about opening a Swiss bank account...glad I didn't now!

I don't know...you still may not be safe (from the IRS). I think the IRS' battle with the Swiss started with a Swiss bank that has US operations...thus giving the US Govt some arm-twisting leverage over them.

HSBC operates in the US....

Ditto on the USAA accts. We keep a BOFA acct in case we need to deposit cash but everything has been transfered to USAA. Can't beat the ATM refunds and Deposit@home!

I have accounts at Pentagon Federal, USAA and Bank of America. I've had BofA for years and years and just never bother to switch. I think there best feature is their ATM network -- they operate the overseas Community Bank on military bases, so no ATM pretty much around the world. Also, since I'm a military bank customer, I gte 10 or 15 cents evrry time I use my debit card -- pretty hard to beat. I opened the PenFed account last year because they had bay far the lowest rates on an auto loan (needed a new car after coming back from overseas). I've had USAA for years, mostly for insurance, but also for an occasional loan (mortgage and auto). Customer service is always top notch, but not having physical branches always turns me off. As much as I'd like to just consolidate everything with one institution, I'm quite happy with the accounts i have between th ethree.

PNC and SunTrust. I like PNC because when I use someone else's ATM, they reimburse the fees. I also like that I've only been with them for a year and a half, but I can call or visit the branch and they know me. SunTrust is OK. The only real reason I'm with them is because my account is totally free. Otherwise, I'm not really impressed with them.
