Bank Accounts

In August and September representatives from the big banks (Bank of America and Citizen’s) will cover the BU campus, and at it will seem that these are the only two banks in town. They'll offer you a key chain. Take their gifts but remember that it's always good to shop around. It's worth taking the time to figure out the best place to put your money, because monthly fees can really add up. Banks worth looking at include Cambridge Trust and Asian American Bank. Check out local banks in your neighborhood. Keep in mind that at any bank, as long as you are a student, you should never have to pay a monthly fee.

Many students have been happy using internet based banks: NetBank, ING Direct, Fidelity Investments
