I haven't read through the entire thread yet, so maybe this has already been mentioned... a debit card transaction is the equivalent of cash, as it's "debited" from your checking account more or less immediately.

It's known as Swipe Fee Reform. Went in to effect last year. Its main purpose was to put a cap on the fees banks could charge for processing debit cards. Retailers said they'd lower prices due to the drop in charges, while banks say they'd lose money. It's in part what brought about the hoopla with Bank of America (and others) trying to introduce charges for things like having a debit card or 'free' checking account, due to the drop in their take of the debit card fees.

USAA is a credit union. And everyone is eligible now for a bank acct. You just don't get all of the benefits unless you're military or related.

There is not one in my town though my town has a large base and is full of military retirees. We have the Navy Federal Credit Union which is almost as bad as a bank. I belong to employee credit unions that have expanded to cover the community.

I have never seen a USAA branch. As far as I know, they don't have any. All interaction is done via internet, phone or mail. You think you'd miss the local branch, but I never have. Deposit checks via internet and scanner and money is available instantly, ATM/Debit fees refunded no matter where you use it, no fees for accounts, checks, etc. Plus if you qualify, you can take advantage of their other services: investing, great insurance for car, home, life, etc.

You don't need to be any sort of military for their checking account.

I don't think you can get the cool deposit by phone if you are not military (plus other qualifications), but otherwise you can have a regular checking account.

USAA just opened an office here. We've gotten mailings about it but I'm still not entirely sure all that they offer. I think they have advisors there and I think I saw mention of an ATM.
