banks on st croix
Relocating to STX next month, and wanting suggestions on which bank to choose, and why...please. Appreciate all your input!
Bank of St Croix is the nicest one to deal with and Firstbank is a close second, but their (firstbank's) internet services are way better. I've had bad experiences with banco popular and (shudder) Scotiabank. Do a search--I think there is at least one lengthy discussion on vi banks here in the not too distant past.
Try doing a search, it's been answered a million times if you want a more in depth response. 🙂
Bank of St. Croix puts a $1000/day limit on using their debit card.
Banco Popular only limits you to your account balance.
Bank of St. Croix for sure. The lines are never long.
Bank Of St Croix, FDIC, Friendly Service Two Branches!
We've used Banco Popular for 8 years with no problems. Even had two personal loans.
Thank you for all the information......@ Hiya, I do search, but sometimes it is nice to have the most recent opinions since things can change, sorry for any inconvenience it causes you. I am trying to be thorough, and may be redundant, but the move is a huge deal to me and my family. I am not trying to waste anyones time, but greatly value the opinions here. Please disregard if my questions offend you.
No inconvenience at all just trying to give you more info. 🙂 Next time I guess I will have to use three smiley faces, geez. Nothing much changes but the owners of the restaurants and bars. And you should definitely keep your current bank account if you have a bank.
Thanks Hiya, I will keep my stateside bank...just need one on island for ease of use, and banks are changing left and right up here in California right now.....so just wanted the most recent opinions......see you all next month! 🙂
Hiya makes a good point. If you have access to a good credit union while you're stateside, sign up. (Credit unions range from awesome to very very bad.) I've hung on to a credit union membership for years without much thought. When my wife needed a new car we called them on a lark and they gave us financing at less than a third of what we would have paid on-island!
Yes, my husband has a good credit union that we will stay with, plus our normal stateside bank, since he is staying here to work for a bit longer. The majority of things will continue to be paid stateside, just still looking for the local bank for ease of access on island. Thanks all!
I have had FirstBank for several years and would recommend them. I would say do NOT go with Scotiabank- at least two people I know have had accounting problems with Scotia, that didn't get cleared up promptly.
