Do you stick with one Bank for all your financial needs?

We are planning to buy a house but I don't think we will be using our current bank for such endearment.

  • No. I have checking at Bank of America (just for the ATMs) and a savings acct at a local credit union (better rates).

  • I want to say yes but no.. When I bought a car we went to get a loan through a different bank because ours wouldn't approve us for the amount we needed. We were financed through the dealership for the car but have used the second bank for our home.

  • We have three different banks. One for checking/svngs/car loan, a different for mortgage (you know those change throughout the life of the mortgage) and a different for credit card and another car loan.

  • We have 2 different banks. One is our main account which my DH has his paycheck go directly to and one was mine that I had before we got married. Just so happens that is the same bank that our mortgage is through, but our VA disability goes to that one. We like having the 2 different accounts to move money around if we need to, plus the secondary account we have my student loans, newspaper subscription, and movie rental come directly out of it so I know whatever is left is play month for the month! :)

  • No - we have 3 different banks. Our mortgage and savings account is at the credit union, we have an account at a regular bank for our checking accounts/everyday expenses, and then we have an investment account at a brokerage.

  • No. My car loan is through a different bank. The interest rate was better.
