One of the efforts loosely connected to Occupy Wall Street is Bank Transfer Day, a proposal to observe Guy Fawkes Day (November 5, this year a Saturday) by getting your money out of a Big Bank and into a local bank or credit union.
Any suggestions of local banks and credit unions with decent websites? I need to enter a physical bank maybe once every five years. For me, and I assume many others, the online bank is the bank. And many banks, both Big and local, have websites that make you want to toss your laptop across the room. Worcester’s Commerce Bank, for example, has a website so hard to use it’s like they opened a branch at the bottom of a storm drain.
