Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for buying stocks mutual funds and etfs. Easy for managing your investments and regular checking account together.I can easily transfer money from one account to the other. Another Advantage to this account is you can deposit money at any Charles schwab branch and then transfer that money to your checking account. The only annoying part is it takes a while for your funds to be available after deposit however they told me that changes after 90 days. I think the intrest rates are better than most large banks. Last but not least who can complain about free checks, that's almost unheard of nowadays!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features and Benefis I have used Schwab for banking and investing need for a decade now and have not had any issues. From the banking perspective, I have always received checks or a new debit card (in case of fraud) in a very timely manner. Whenever I have to call, I am always treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. ATM access is great because you have no limits no matter where you go in the US. In the rare event that we have a big ticket item being charged to our checking account and we did not move money over from savings, Schwab alerts us so we can make the move rather than charge us a fee similar to other financial institutions that I have worked with. If I could consolidate my student or auto loan over to Schwab, I would in a heart beat. It is nice to have so many of my financial accounts in one house with an institution that puts the customer first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I switched from a Credit Union to Schwab I'm a big fan of Credit Unions, but having the great features of a Schwab Checking account (Free ATM Fees, and No Foreign Transaction Fees) linked to my Brokerage Account I was sold. The only thing I wish was better is the Interest Earned on money sitting in my Savings Account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Check-steady I really like my invest-checking account with Schwab. I only wish that I could purchase over-draft protection of some kind only for small incidental potential overdrafts.
