And Citibank is about to start charging $15-$20 in monthly fees.
Close your account and open one with a credit union. I bank with SF Fire Credit Union and love it. No fees, plus they refund your account anytime an ATM machine charges you a fee. There are a bunch of other other credit unions in the city too.
