Yeah, Chase, the bank. Now, they don't piss me off because they're a bad bank, far from it. I actually liked Chase. I liked the people who worked there, I liked the ATMs which were incredibly smart and modern and I especially liked how close I live to more than one branch.
So why do they piss me off? Well, when I signed up for my checking account it was "free" checking. Recently I received a letter from Chase letting me know that the "free" checking is no longer free. They told me they were going to start charging a $12 monthly fee unless I met any of several conditions. Conditions such as having at least one direct deposit to my account of at least $500 a month. Or paying $25 per month of service or other fees.
I didn't meet the conditions, so I either kept my account and payed the fee for my "free" checking or went elsewhere. I decided to open an account with Capital One. They charge no monthly fees and have no minimum balance. So that's what I did. I hated to leave Chase, but I signed up for free checking and $12 per month is not free.
So, in conclusion, fuck you Chase for making me switch banks with your greedy bullshit.
