    I agree. CU's are not for profit so they have less fees. I've been with them for 32 years.

    I use boa, only because it's free and there is one on every corner. Plus you can make deposits up til 8pm at the ATM and it credits the same day. If you need anything else, forget about it. They won't give a loan for anything!

    Be your own bank. Read, Learn, DO IT YOURSELF.
    The only benefit you can derive from using a federally
    regulated corporation/bank is in the form of trust accounts.
    If you are not competent enough to gain a little knowledge
    about "their" monetary system, I suggest continuing to let
    them pull the wool over your eyes.

    Not to get off topic, but these gentlemen hyping the use of
    credit unions have absolutely no idea what they are talking
    about in relation to how credit unions operate. They only
    get their so called facts off of the internet.

    What are you saying? Exactly how do you process a credit transaction without a financial institution? Accepting checks? Are you telling me you only take cash or run around town to every customers bank to cash their payment checks?

    Caymans are awesome, been many times. However last time i checked US tax code still requires you to declare deposits made to offshore banks. :usflag:

    Do your banks really charge that much that it's worth the hassle and red flag raising trying to circumvent the law?:usflag:

    Being your own bank, do you pay yourself interest? Is your money stuffed mattress FDIC insured?
