im 16 :]
Chase is a great bank. Everybody is, of course, entitled to their own opinion. 8P They have a great fraud department and if something strange happens, they'll call you and set it straight. I've already had this happen once. Somebody got a hole of my card number and started charging it in another state. If you're looking for a checking account, I say go for it. If you're looking for just a savings, Chase requires you to carry a minimum balance in savings to keep from getting charged so I'd head to some other bank. =/
If you have a job it's conveinent to get the bank that your paychecks cash at...Or whatever is closest... From personal experience I would not say Chase, because I have heard NOTHING but bad things about them. I'd say Wachovia, Bank of America, or Federal Credit Union. If you have a credit union account and you need a loan they are the best place to get one and the easiest (even though it's extremely hard to get a loan right now, if and when you do F.C.U is the best bank to try). Hopefully this helps.
Pick a smaller local bank. Big banks such as Chase of Bank of America ream you with fees and shoddy service.
I dont like Chase, i use it but i'm pretty sure im switching. Maybe Bank of America?
I say TCF cuz they have them all over(not just 1 state) =]
chase is the way to go. :D
