“As many banks are starting to implement new monthly debit card fees, now is the perfect time for consumers to evaluate their banking relationships, find a bank that fits their needs and switch,” said Nandita Bakhshi, Executive Vice President, Head of Products, TD Bank. “It is important to know there are options and consumers can still find a bank that doesn’t charge a monthly debit card fee, issues you the card on the spot and has an extensive store network that is open when you need it to be. We also have programs in place to make switching banks and checking accounts as simple as possible.”
According to a recent TD Bank poll, nearly three-quarters of TD customers use debit cards 15 times per month citing ease, convenience and no fees as the main reasons for use.
“All banks, including TD, are under pressure to respond to the regulatory changes surrounding the banking industry,” said Bakhshi. “With 70 percent of our customers saying they would discontinue their account if a fee was implemented, we listened to our customers and chose to respond in a way that is true to our value proposition of America’s Most Convenient Bank.”
As the bevy of new industry-wide changes continue to roll in, many consumers are wondering how to get the most benefit from their banking relationships. A recent issue of Money magazine explored bank account options in national banks, credit unions as well as regional banks and noted TD Bank as “Best Regional Bank/East”. While many banks reacted to recent government regulations by eliminating free checking or adding requirements to accounts, TD Bank launched the TD Convenient Choice Checking Suite. The product set offers six simple checking accounts with unique options and features, thus enabling customers to select the checking product that is just right for them.
