I was wondering between Regions, Chase, Fifth Third or SunTrust who was the least skeevy concerning fees, debit card balance mumbo-jumbo and customer service. I didn't mention Wachovia/Wells Fargo for the afore-mentioned issues. Thanks.

I switched from Wachovia to Suntrust and have no complaints since doing so.

If you're eligible, a credit union is probably your best bet. They typically have lower fees and better interest rates on loan products. That said, I was happy with Suntrust before I left them to join my credit union.

I've been with SunTrust for years and years. They have always done right by me.

I know my bank is not in your list but to me the best bank is the one where you have a person working that takes care of your needs and is able to wave the fees. I have BoA and I have a great person doing all that for me...

For the rest it is more of the same....all like to charge fees and raise fees on people who can afford it due to the others trying to get away with everything and not carring about their credit...so the rest has to pay for them

BoA is terrible with fees, i hope you're kidding. I would never bank with BoA with all the issues I had with them. I closed my account and they re-opened it because I had forgotten to change my paypal to the new bank. I figured since the account was closed, it would just decline, but nope, boa reopened the account and issued a fee to me. Since I had also moved, it went further negative because if its negative for over 5 days, they keep giving you more fees. When it was all said and done, i "owed" them 150 bucks for a 2 dollar charge. Needless to say, I got it taken care of when i threatened BBB complaint and to get attorney general involved.


But, if you happen to be a government or military worker, I highly suggest USAA. They have no fees and it costs nothing to join. And, you deposit checks from the comfort of your own home using a scanner.

Ever consider a credit union? The fees are minimal at best, and your ability to borrow money is better than a bank, since members are the only ones they deal with.

Suncoast is very good, as are others. I'm a former Suntrust (yuck!) customer, and have also banked with 5/3, but they have limited coverage in the area.
