I have three checking accounts, all free. I am thinking of getting another one.
1. Checking account at credit union. This credit union is connected to the job I had while in college. There is no money there, but I keep it open since I still have some blank checks.
2. Washington Mutual. This was my main checking account until Bank of America stole me away. Also, now that I work in NJ BOA is more convenient. Odd checks gets deposited to this account.
3. Bank of America. This is where I do it all. I received $50 for opening the account. I have direct deposit of my pay check and online bill pay. I absolutely love the online bill pay. The account has been opened since December 2005 with no problems (knock on wood).
4. Commerce Bank. I am thinking of opening an account with them because they have late hours and convenient locations. My cable company has a promotion where cable customers get $50 for opening an account at Commerce.
* I love FREE money*
My question is: Should I take this latest offer and open another free checking account. Do I already have to many?
Disclaimer: I check online activity each day, so I have no problem with insufficient funds. My account buffer is less than $5.00 in the BOA account.
