  •  Great tips. Thank you. (6+ / 0-)

    I'm currently searching CU's with open membership in my area, and am finding that though there are ATM's (w/deposit) close by, the nearest offices are 30-40 miles north. Considering that I haven't had to deal with a BoA teller in years, an out-of-county CU would still be a better option.

    WRT membership in charitable organizations, I am going to see if there is a similar "go-around" with the CU in my neighborhood. Given that ditching BoA is the first and foremost goal, it would be nice to deal with a financial establishment that actually does serve my community.

      refunds ATM fees, up to $1.50 per transaction, up to 10 transactions per month. Local BofA ATMs charge $3.00 for non-BofA cards (bastids). The ATM at the discount gas station only charges $1.50 so I usually go there, or use the 'cash back' feature when shopping to get pocket money.

      I recently discovered an ATM at a 7/11 (unfortunately not nearby) that didn't charge me anything! It was a CITI ATM (another set of bastids) so I'm thinking they might have an agreement with my credit union to not charge.

      So you may be leaving the ubiquitous BofA cash machines, but it's not a complete ATM desert out there.
