Things Your Traditional Banker Won’t Tell You About Online Banking

Have you made the switch to online banking yet? I made the switch myself several years ago and I gotta tell you, I love it. There are many benefits to handling your bank account  online, many of which your traditional banker won’t admit.
 Let’s face it: dollars are dollars and whether you use them through a bank having a brick and mortar presence or use them through a bank entirely online, dollars are still dollars. What’s funny (or maybe it’s not so funny) is that traditional banks offer many of the same online resources as online banks , yet their fee structure remains constant.
My experience has been that online banking is far less expensive than traditional grounded banks. My PerkStreet  checking account  is free to use plus I get tons of rewards and cash back! Their fee structure for everything from stop payments to NSF’s are substantially less expensive than my traditional bank.
That’s been my experience. Whether you’re looking for a mortgage  or wanting to finance an automobile, there’s a very good chance an online bank can get you a better loan rate.
