What are the best banks for personal banking?
I'm looking for a bank that pays dividends on checking accounts, doesn't charge fees, returns all ATM fees, allows banking by mail and can deposit checks by sending in photos via a mobile app. What are the best banks or credit unions.
That would depend on your goal. The best of anything has a lower cost and high return on investment. Free banking, lower cost additional services, and great customer service are three things I look for when I choose a bank. Stability is also a good thing to investigate when dealing with banks. How banks deal with over-draft and other banking issues is also important. Safety is also a concern. Personal data should be kept safe, ATM's should be well let and in plain sight. For the services you are looking for I would think that a smaller bank or credit union would be best.
I think that they all the same and the never jump and dance for you unless you are absolutely loaded with cash.

I'm curious what others think, in my opinion, the current recession we're in is simply the fault of the people that wanted a house and either couldn't afford their loans or didn't educate themselves properly on the loan they were getting into.
