And it's nice because they have locations nationwide.
One of my sisters and her husband have accounts at U.S. Bank and they're pretty happy with them. I think they have a neat-looking logo compared with the other big-name banks.

Regarding U.S. Bank being nationwide, I think it's more accurate to say they're located in major areas of the country (not all states, if that's what you were saying), as explained in the following Wikipedia article:

U.S. Bancorp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I just checked U.S. Bank's website to look up their current interest rates for their basic savings account (only 0.10%). You'd be better off putting your savings in either an online bank such as ING Direct or a credit union, in my humble opinion.

Wow your mind reader, I seriously just opened an ING Orange Savings account like a week ago. It's is a great option for people who have money in savings making little to nothing and who are familiar with online banking. No fee's, minimums, etc... it's a great deal. OMG I'm like one of their commercials now. AHHHHHH

Your correct in that they are not in all area's, but hey 28 out of 50 states isn't bad LOL. They do, however have locations in Texas and California, which would be perfect for the original poster

LOL!!! That makes two of us. Here I am pitching different banks and I don't even work for one. But yes, U.S. Bank may be another option for the original poster to consider should he change his mind about banking at WaMu upon moving here.

P.S. Was the number you called (800) 788-7000? That's the number that instantly connected me to Manila.
Yeah that's the number that I always call and have never been diverted to Manila. Lucky me I guess

As long as you don't have to stand in line on a payday Friday or call their overseas telephone customer service, you should have a very happy experience with WaMu. Happy Banking!

Have either of you thought of joining a credit union? They provide pretty much the same services as the traditional banking institutions we all know (BofA, Wells Fargo, WaMu, etc.). One really good thing about them is that through the Co-Op Network, you can use ANY credit union's ATMs in the country for FREE!!! That's over 20,000 ATMs--more than even BofA. Here's the website for one I joined over a month ago, which is open to all Southern Californians:

Welcome to Wescom

Their motto is "Banking You Just Can't Get At Your Bank." I've already discovered that to be true. I'm wondering why I didn't join a credit union sooner!
