It reached 95 degrees here yesterday and in some places above 100 degrees and it’s not even officially summer. So, this is my lazy Friday post because I was way too hot to have a laptop on my legs last night to actually sit and write a post. Instead I’ll share with you a very interesting infographic from Bankrate.com about the rise in checking fees are credit unions.
Why should you care? Well, credit unions have always traditionally charged less fees and the overall cost of doing business with credit unions was always traditionally lower than the big banks. If credit unions are raising their fees, then guess who follows next? All of you banking at the big guys (Chase, Citibank, Capital Once, Wells Fargo, etc.) better hold on to your purse strings and get ready for the fee bandwagon.
