Bank account advice

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering what the best bank would be to open a bank account with?
I'm just looking to open a current account and get a credit card.

I used to be with Post Finance when I moved over 3-4 years ago but i didn't like how you could only use it in Switzerland or online in some places.

Any advice or tips? Happy to give more info if need be!

Re: Bank account advice

I think that is no longer a problem with Postfinance.
For credit-card, I think the advice is usually to get a free card from Coop/Migros.

Re: Bank account advice

I've been happy with Credit Suisse. For credit card I stick with my Visa card from SBB (comes with Halbtax).
