Please recommend me a bank that suits my snowflake needs and has a branch in Columbus Ohio.
Recommend me a bank account.
I would prefer credit unions if they could do everything a big name bank could do.
I would prefer free checking, or minimum fee checking.
I would like no fees on incoming wire transfers if possible.
I receive international checks, and my old bank CSBank.com would not accept International checks! (wtf?!) so I'd like to be able to deposit international checks to my checking account even if there is a "hold" put on them for a few days.
I'd like to have online banking, also be able to send bank wires online..
I'd like few hassles, I travel a lot and with my previous 2 banks, they would often red flag/freeze my card, even if I called them and told them I was going to travel first. I occasionally make large deposits and withdrawals, in cash, and my one bank used to call me every time to confirm it was me.. I hated that.
I must be able to initiate opening an account from the internet, and/or through my mom who would be a cosigner who is in Columbus Ohio now. ( I am currently abroad )
Preferably my mom could be a co-signer either way.
Also: They must have a branch in Columbus Ohio.
I am not very good at banking, even though I do it often, and I have never really used a big name bank anywhere in the world let alone in Columbus Ohio, so it would help a lot if you had personal experience or somehow new the banks' customer service was exceptional.
I doubt I can get everything I want, but what bank comes the closest?
Some friends recommended me the ones below for starters:
Kemba Credit union
thanks a lot!
