Sunday Money Roundup – Move Your Money Edition.

Have you heard about the Move Your Money campaign yet? Thousands of people have pledged to move their money away from the casino-style Too Big To Fail banks and give their money to community banks and credit unions. I moved all my money away from Bank of America into Schwab – which while not a credit union, they didn’t take a dime of bail out money. If you bank with one of the huge banks, you may want to check out the campaign! On to the roundup…

    I hadn’t heard of the Move Your Money campaign. Sounds very interesting. The banks really owe us one, don’t they?

  2. Dawn/FFL says:

    I have always thought credit unions were better and wondered why people would want balance minimums and all those fees waiting in the dark alleys for them… I can’t imagine going to bank when I get much better service from credit unions anyway… but to each their own.

  3. Thanks for the mention–I appreciate it very much

    I dig the concept… like you I moved banks awhile back and gave all “bail out banks” the boot.

    Now I’m with ING Direct and a local credit union; and I’m lovin’ it.

    Hey David, thanks for mentioning the tax refund article! I’ve heard about the “Move your Money” effort, but I haven’t followed up on it. I don’t think any of my banks took bailout money but I should check. thanks again!
