To the Americans: Wamu Bank is an ex-pats best friend

In light of some questions on a recent thread I wanted to start a new post making the Americans on the forum aware of the benefits available via Wamu Bank (formerly Washington Mutual). This is great for ex-pats particularly, if you need to keep a US account while in Switzerland for payment etc.

They're checking accounts are 100% free. No fees at all.
- free money withdrawal from any ATM anywhere (although as with any bank subject to 1% foreign currency conversion fee)
- free international wire transfers
- 1 free overdraft protection/year
- Call them as much as you want from overseas collect.

Anyhoo, I think they're a great bank and if you're tired of paying to get access to your own money they're an ideal solution.

Everyone needs to believe in something, I believe I'll have another drink.
