We got some kind of refund check from our bank USAA. The check sat in the car for weeks, it was only a measly $18 but today I was at the BX and figured I'd cash it.

Looking at the check in the lower left corner something caught my eye. It said "Bank of America" but the top says USAA and was their check.


So when did Bank of America take over USAA and why haven't we heard about it? They are saying below they haven't been bailed out.

Should we yank our money out of there? Anybody else notice this????

USAA is one of the healthiest banks in the US. No, they haven't been taken over by those dirtbags at BOA.

Slight Hijack here:

I have an account with USAA and with wachovia...

I got the USAA one when I DEPed in. From people who have accounts with them, (also in the military would be good too) how are they?

I haven't really used them yet since I havent had any direct deposits, and I'm just curious whether I should keep my DD with Wachovia or switch to USAA?

thanks

why would they need to advertise? At least half the people I work with have USAA

I would switch to USAA. No atm fees is really handy when you're overseas or just traveling around the country. If you get check from somebody you can deposit via your scanner at home. We were in a similar situation with Navy Fed, but I got so fed up with Navy Fed's online banking that it pushed me to switch over to USAA, however Navy Fed has beat USAA with a couple of autoloans, so it doesn't hurt to shop around when financing.

In my opinion there is no better bank. I switched from shitty ass wells fargo about 6 years ago and love it. USAA has my checking, savings, brokerage, all my insurance, gold buleon (no not really), and soon to have home mortgage. They have no ATM's so when you get charged for using one, THEY give you the money back. Great bank, really nice customer service which is hard to come by.

USAA is the best bank I have ever done business with. I seriously doubt BOA has anything to do with them.

Good grief, don't scare me like that!

Please don't scare me like that. USAA is the bank that I'm cheating on Wachovia with.

USAA FTW Especially if you are an AD troop. They are tailored to meet the needs of all AD folks.

I have been a member for over 10 years. The wife and I have almost everything through them. Auto, home, life, cc's, investments....

I highly doubt it.

Fixed it for you

Seriously, their customer service and satisfaction is above and beyond any company in operation today. Wouldn't bank through anyone else.
