I don’t want to pimp my bank (ie. my fabulous day job) too much on my blog, but some inside scoop:
Starting this fall (mid Sept) Citizens Bank of Canada will be dropping its monthly fees for the chequing account,
when you travel, you can withdraw at any ATM with no charge from us (can’t control what the other bank does – but any EXCHANGE network will be free on their end too).
So if you want a no-fee chequing account,
unlimited atm (Canada: all EXCHANGE = most credit union machines, all HSBC machines, all Nat’l Bank of Canada; Int’l per above)
cheques themselves are free,
email me at nancy underscore zimmerman at citizens bank (all one word) dot canada (abbreviated) and I’ll see if I can get you set up even before we formally roll it out in Sept.
