Having grown up going to the bank with my Dad all the time (always scoring a lollipop), I’ve become a virtual bank person in my adult life. USAA rocks it for the military for personal banking and we LOVE them! However, they do not cater to business banking:( My previous local business banking experience was not working for me (sounds a little Dr. Phil there) and I also needed a clean break from my former business. When I received a personal recommendation from a military friend about Chase Business Banking , I was off to check them out. Melissa, the local business banking specialist was amazing! She got all the preliminary stuff set up in a jiffy and explained to me that having hubby as a “signer” on the account with his provided DD-214 would give me FREE everything! Now, to clarify, as a “signer,” this does not necessarily mean he has anything to do with my business as I actually am the “only” owner of Kickify. We have been extremely pleased with EVERYTHING thus far. LOVE the “remote deposit” that can be done from my iPhone, the banking easily feeds into my Quickbooks, Quickpay is awesome and let’s me shift money without fees, is easy to navigate on-line and the customer service rocks.
To all those who possess or have a spouse who possesses a DD214, I strongly recommend this route for your business banking. And FYI, hubby just became an independent contractor and without hesitation, set up his new account there.
