Banking With Chase

Is there a fee for not having a certain amount of money in checking account? How much to open an account? Is the switchkit something I can trust?

  • i don't have a checking account with Chase, I have a mortgage. I HATE them. If I could switch banks, I would.

  • I don't like Chase bank either. I had an account with them a few years ago. At that time, my house got broken into (during the night), and among other things my wallet got stolen. Not even 6 hrs later 2 of my other accounts called to give me a heads up on fraud alerts. I then called all of my accounts to put freezes on them, and let them know my wallet had been stolen. THREE MONTHS LATER Chase, despite numerous calls, emails and actual snail mail traffic, STILL had not closed my account. On top of that, whoever stole it had moved to a different state and used my card to charge random internet and phone bills. UGH! Finally, after I yelled at them on the phone, photocopied EVERYTHING including the police report, sent EVERYTHING (all over again) in one mail message to some manager, my account was closed and the money was refunded to me. WORST Card service ever!
    I'd recommend not using them, if possible for you.

  • I have had a checking account with Chase for many years, and I have never paid a fee. Go to a branch, and speak with a banker.
