Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst expierence ever The worst experience ever setting up a bank account. I will never bank with Charles Schwab ever again. I plan on making sure others know what a nightmare it is to setup a basic account. I wanted this checking account for the unlimited ATM fees internationally. It was not worth any of the hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing features I love Schwab Checking! However there is one thing that needs to be changed soon. The Online Transfer doesn't work. The 'From' and 'To' drop-downs do not drop down when I click on it. I have tried on multiple different browsers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Schwab checking account comes with some amazing features. Love that there is no limit to ATM rebates, also no foreign transaction fees. The only issue I can see one having is the ability to deposit cash but there are ways to work around this. Overall it still is an amazing checking account.
