I'm not paying that. You should leave or upgrade your account to the one that has everything for free.
It may indeed be partly my fault. Here is my experience...
I had an account I really liked at Wachovia:
1) free safety deposit box
2) free checks
3) 2 free non-wachovia atm withdrawals per monthly cycle
4) Low minimum deposit (maybe $10k)
then the evil empire of wells fargo came in. the fee onslaught began. Paying for checks, no free non wells fargo atm withdrawals, charge for safety deposit box, charge for check images, etc. As I understand it wells fargo's big thing is cross selling. They apparently want to sell me at least 8 of their productshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wells_Fargo
If I agree to that I guess I'll get a break on fees. But I don't want that. I just want my bank to be my checking account.
I use Fidelity for my Brokerage and credit cards and bill pay
Vanguard and PenFed for my retirment accounts (also fido and tiaa cref)
metlife for my insurance
i like it the way it is. I don't want to move everything to Wells fargo to save on fees. I just want them to stop fee-ing me to death!
I think the solution is to say to goodbye to Wells fargo. Not sure where to go though...
