Speaking of banks

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been with a major bank (BoA, for those who *must* know) since I moved to DC ~9 years ago. I’ve recently been disappointed with their customer service and the randomness with which they have decided to start assessing maintenance fees for my accounts. I’m wondering if PoPville has had good/bad experiences with any local credit unions/banks and can provide recommendations.

I do travel for business domestically quite a bit, so I’m particularly interested in how folks have faired with having their accounts with a smaller bank while traveling. Big ATM fees, etc.? I’m also happy to learn more about experiences with the other big banks like Wells Fargo, especially now that their…lovely? colors have sprung up all over downtown in recent weeks.”
