Yep, I'm really pleased for the banks

They can now use even more of my 0.1% interest on my savings accounts to pay the extra dividends.

My own bank appointed a new Chief Executive the other day. They had to pay him market rates of course, ?6 million over two years, and I am also so pleased that the remainder of my 0.1% interest on my savings is being used to pay his salary and bonuses.

It's a plot

I think the design is to discourage saving and get you to buy stuff you don't want or need just to keep the economic wheels turning. Where's your patriotism? You have a duty to squander until you live in squalor. Wink

Darn banks...

I looked at my "interest bearing checking acct.", WOW!!! a whole $.01 was added. But, of course if I boo-boo and become overdrawn, that's a $29.00 fee. What a give back, $29.00 vs $.01. I mean what's the point. Some banks even want to charge you for the paper bank statement, I mean gosh darn, banks don't make enough money. It's not my fault, they invest in losing properties and offer practically nothing and service, forget it. BofA wants to charge now for the use of a bank teller, give me a break. All because the fees got hemmed-in(new govt. rules) because they got out of hand, now they generate new fees. I suppose the ink pen will need to be fee based as well. -----Willy Sad
