Bye Bye Banky

Changing banks is sooooooo frustrating.

I’ve had the same bank and account since I started at Frostburg.  I LOVED my bank.  It’s been the best bank ever.

But then they decided to let someone else buy them out.  And these people want to charge for EVERYTHING.  I’m not paying up to $20/month to have you hold my money.

Nope.  Not happening.

So the hunt for a new bank begun.

I decided to make life easy and (after reaseaching) go with Devon’s bank.  I can get it fee-less and it’ll be easier to have our accounts all in the same place.  As much as I loved my bank, it was getting annoying having his account completely separate from mine and ours.  Now when we need to transfer into our joint account, it’ll be almost instantaneous instead of having a two-day wait period.

But, OMG, everything that comes out of my account?

Not to mention me changing my paycheck direct deposit.  That’s actually probably the easiest.  I just emailed our payroll department and told them to change my account after this next check on Friday.

Most of my bills are linked to my checking account, not to mention PayPal, Amazon, my StitchFix subscriptions, and all sorts of other things.  I made a list yesterday, it’s soooooo long.  It’s going to take forever to change everything over.

Seriously, don’t ever change banks if you don’t have to.  It’s annoying.  Really, really annoying.
