After years of disgust with banks, I finally found a bank I really like: etrade bank. No fees of any kind, unlimited ATM refunds, on-line banking, good customer service, they never shut down your account for "fraud prevention" when you are shopping overseas, they pay interest on all your accounts, they offer pretty much any service you could ever want, and they have exceptional on-line tools. The only caveat is you need to keep $1000 combined in all of your accounts. If you can do that, they are ideal.

Yeah it depends on what is important to you. If you have ever had any security issues then you will like RBC and VISA. Someone stole my CC number and all I got was a call to confirm and new cards sent to address of my choice. I also have accounts and CC cards in the two countries I sail so have a choice. I also get to play the money markets when I transfer money. So far that has worked for us.

Maybe the answer is diversification, more than one account with more than one bank.

It seems all banks from the super largest ones to the little ones and every size in between are having problems as almost 200 have gone out of business in this year of financial meltdown. So keeping track of things going on with your favorite is important.
