Good points. But really all I needed was a 2nd card or account. Sure, there will be a $5 fee plus more for using the small bank at a remote ATM, totally understand. We usually are not charged anything for having our Check/Savings and I try hard not to rack any ATM fees but every once in a while I just let it go if I really need access.
It's like I can put the gas in at $1.99 but then every once in a while I end up near the beach with little to no gas and I end up having to pay $2.49 a gallon over there or more...it off sets a lot of the savings but I figure it still balances out. I hate having to pay more for gas when I know there are lower prices around town.
Friday Update: We went in to do some banking that we had to make an appointment for. We were greeted to two chairs near the teller windows but more of a desk set up with a plexiglass separating us from the worker bee. Now to be honest, this guy was awesome. He moved from NYC in Mid-March, oh yes, as this pandemic was in full explosion
I welcomed him to Florida, turns out he knew a lot of the same style of House Music i have grown accustomed to, this was not expected but certainly made the task easier. I was also wearing a bright and I do mean bright colored shirt with a very large monkey wearing a set of DJ Booth headphones and I get a lot of smiles back from it.
So we get to the end and he asks if there is anything else he can do for me and I ask about getting something special on my new Visa/ATM card and he hooked me up with one of these and I had to laugh at how easily I was bought off from griping and complaining.
