Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great no fee checking Great for travel and for no fees and reimbursed ATM fees. I just wish they offered more banking services like line of credit and other banking services so that I would be able to move 100% to Schwab. Maybe even bringing in sub accounts for organization and saving purposes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ATM access and foreign purchase fee waivers are very valuable I travel quite a bit and found Schwab's ATM network access to be a big help. In addition they provide good 'fraud possibility' alerts and allow me to register my travel so these are not necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of all of the banks I've worked with, Schwab is by far the best! I have had various other checking accounts and brokerage accounts (I still have a few but not all) but by far, Schwab has provided the best service, options, and support I have received from any bank. I don't think I will ever leave Schwab if they continue to do what they are doing which is fast customer service, no ATM fees or minimum balances, and free checks. They continue to surprise with their excellence and I will forever be a customer. Love Schwab and all of their offerings.
