FreeCheckingInformation.com, an independent website, is seeking consumer feedback about the free checking account as part of its ongoing effort to be the primary provider of online information about consumers’ favorite checking account.
Bank of the West quietly killed off its free checking checking accounts and erased every mention of these accounts off their website. BOTW now offers "Easy Checking" with a monthly fee. This customer-started petition hopes to reverse the policy.
FreeCheckingInformation.com spent 4 years researching a list of free checking account names. The requirements for being on this list is that the word “Free” must appear in the account name and adhere to the FDIC Truth in Savings Act Section 263c.
Instead of sitting back and remaining silent as the big mega-banks attempt to destroy the free checking account while adding new and higher fees to all checking accounts, the Long Island-based Bethpage Credit Union is taking action.
A new website has been launched that is dedicated to the gathering and sharing of information about the free checking account not owned or maintained by any bank or credit union or third-party vendor serving the financial services industry.
