Default Bank of America cancels $5.00 Debit Card Fee

I guess too many closed their accounts and Bank of America realized that they were the only ones doing that silly sh*t LOL

Great news, until they decide to charge it again in six months, and then take it away again two months before the election. Just going on my 13 year experience with them, but i hope i'm wrong,

For now this is good news, thanks for sharing Solomon!!

i agree; they'll just find some other way to make up their "losses"

if you don't pay for it upfront, they'll just ask the feds for another bailout/handout

Darn, my bank was picking up tons of accounts because of that fee! We were hoping they'd keep it up and we could steal all their customers!

Bank O.A. pulease. I have 3 accounts with them, well when i went to order checks for the campus edge one they said "oh no we're phasing that out" well it's supposed to good for free checking for 5 years and i still have 2 left, but they want that 12.50 per month checking fee for the "privilege" of letting them use my money. He was trying to push some account on me where you don't pay a fee but you get no service. Such a deal!

I agree that charging the debit card fee was dumb and would hurt them. But Banks (sadly) can be such vultures of the middle class/poor...they'll come up with some scheme (usually in 2 pt font)

Credit Unions are the way to go...if you can join one (they have eligibility requirements)...ususally you can find a way to qualify for one in your area somehow

Good, cause this was completely idiotic. If you're like me and live paycheck to paycheck, you can't afford $5 for something stupid like this.

My utility co. decided to start charging $4.95 to pay your bill by debit or credit card, so now I have to go to their office and pay my bill with check or mail it in, totally dumb

Some of the smaller banks can be very good as well (and I'm not just saying that because I work for one). The sad truth is that the government's gone so nutsy with passing new banking reforms that it's drastically cut the income that all banks were able to make before. They're all struggling to make up the difference, which is why we get called "vultures."

I agree the debit card fee was stupid - it was funny to watch from the sidelines though. This whole situation is just sad now.

I agree that some of the smaller banks tend to be better than the behemoths, and they deserve kudos for that. But credit unions tend to be the best choice. It would seem that the best way for Banks to make a good profit would be to make wise investments, with the profit margin being the difference between what they make and interest they pay out. Competitive banks could get a larger deposit base and maybe do OK that way.

But honestly, some of the fees really seem to hurt the working poor most (maybe not your Bank particularly.) These days, whenever I ask for anything from my Bank, I always preface it with "is there a fee for this." And I read EVERYTHING they send me.

Remember that credit unions don't pay taxes. The taxes that my bank will pay this year surpasses the income of most tiny credit unions. It's rather an unfair advantage, these credit unions are getting, especially considering the bad rap "banks" are getting these days.
