I am new to the area and needed a new bank. I received a bonus offer in the mail and decided to go with M&T. I thought I wouldn't even be using the branches but I was completely wrong. I initially flubbed up the activation of my account and when I went in the associates were able to fix it immediately without any hassle at all. I have now sat down with their financial planning and retirement reps as well and they are extremely knowledgeable and courteous. I like the friendly culture and competent employees it makes banking a whole lot easier.
Nationwide has been the absolute easiest insurance company I have worked with so far. I love being able to sign up and manage my account online but also enjoy having an agent I can email when I need information about a new policy or when there is an accident. I had my car window broken at work and one call to my agent and she had an appointment to get it fixed right after my shift! So great!
I like my Chase savings account because it is a place for me to set aside funds that I may need to access at a future date. As an investment the interest rate is way below the national average but as a rainy day fund it is a great place for me to access my emergency funds without penalty or long waiting periods. The rewards have been helpful and the locations in my area are plentiful. Their online mobile app also makes management a breeze and transferring between accounts is always right there on my phone. It's a simple place to sit your money that is it.
I avoid most of the big box stores and I live in a major metropolitan area so I can even take advantage of things like same day shipping. The rewards program earns me points on items I already buy plus I even earn points on purchases not made on Amazon. If you're using subscribe and save and prime and any of the other Amazon services you should be using this card and getting cash back.
Telhio is a reliable credit union that has lots of financial offerings and a competent staff available to answer your questions. I moved to the area and opened a checking and savings account to take advantage of high interest rates on my savings. Years later when I was going to go car shopping I stopped into my local branch and told them what I was looking for. They let me go grab some lunch and come back when they were done. I was able to walk into the dealership confident I was getting a great interest rate that fit my needs so I could focus on getting the price lowered.
I actually don't live near a Chase any longer but I still won't get rid of the account lol! Their Chase pay service is really convenient for sending money to my friends and family. I have also been saved by their 24 hour grace period on overdrafts more times than I would like to say. Mobile app is easy and great to use plus their rewards cards offer great deals!!
