The Wonderful World of Commercial Banking

I finally found some time to change banks. I've been a WaMu customer since my first payday at the YMCA back in high school. Unfortunately, WaMu (now Chase) doesn't have any branches anywhere near Washington, DC. My only option would be to use cashback at Safeway for all my ATM transactions and mail my checks to Texas to deposit them.

I decided to switch banks. After some research (both the aimless-wandering-around-downtown variety and the online variety) I settled on PNC. They have a bunch of branches around and some interesting online options. I opened up an account and the rest was history.

Update 2009-10-06: PNC Sucks.

Update 2009-10-07: Never mind. PNC is awesome. I think I'll write a whole post about how great it is.
