Can we get some feedback and opinions on the banks on STX.
We need to set up a new account.
Any input would be great.
I keep a stateside CU for most of my banking. I keep an account at Scotiabank for ATM and ATH Debit only. The account is free with direct deposit and I pay no fees as long as I use only Scotia's ATMs. I'm very happy with them (5 years now). I won't use BPPR or First due to fees and poor service. My wife has a Bank of STX account and we're happy with them, although there are fees.
I'm closing the last of my local bank accounts. I just don't see the need. Contractors have to wait just as long for my checks to clear from Bank of St. Croix as from USAA, yet the service is just as dreadful at BoSTX as with any of the other local institutions. Online banking is a joke with any of the local banks. Sad, really.
