I need some advice here. I'll be moving to Lexington in June. Currently I bank with Bank of America, but did not see any locations listed in Lexington. So I'll need to switch banks. Who do you guys recommend? I'm looking for a bank with:

FDIC insured (most banks are, I suppose)
No hidden fees or hoops to jump through
Online access
A handful of locations throughout the area
Good, honest customer service

Any help is much appreciated!

Central Bank.

Chase isn't bad either.

Central Bank is an excellent bank.

In my own opinion and from experience, Chase is okay as long as you don't have to contact them for help. They are such a big company you get bounced around a lot.

That's two for Central Bank - must be a great bank.

Yes...Bank of America is like that. They're wonderful, but when you go beyond the banking "basics," you feel like a number.

Good question. I'm going with Central and use as much local business as possible. Meaning I'm not bringing very much in furniture and plan to buy used there as much as possible. Of course also the antique stores

US Bank. Not as many locations as some others, but I've been there 8 years--would never switch.

I don't bank at Central, but if I was to choose a new bank that is what it would be. Central Bank was a local bank for as long as I can remember and then it went out of business. Several years ago, it returned. There is a local "feel" in dealing with them and the fees aren't what the nationally run institutions charge. There is also a nice representation of locations. I give it the thumbs up too!

Central has online banking?? I make a point not to go into the bank but I'm thinkin I might just do it more often if its friendly and no lines. Never mind I just found them online. https://www.centralbank.com/personal/online

Central Banks keeps your money locally for local projects

National chain banks takes your money out of Kentucky to fund projects all over the US
