    USAA hands down. We have been with them for years and we will never switch. Their rates are the best out there and their customer service is incredible. We pay far less for our car and renter's insurance with USAA than with any other company. We have 2 checking accounts, 2 savings accounts, a credit card, renters, auto, and life insurance. They are awesome.

    The best thing about them is their "Deposit at Home" program. If you have a scanner and need to deposit a check, you just scan the check and it is automatically credited to your account. No going to the bank, no mailing in your check. You can do it anywhere in the world!!

    All though USAA doesn't have physical branches, you can do everything on-line. They even reimburse ATM fees (up to $15 per month). They total cater to the military. They can relate to military issues and problems and have always be helpful and caring towards us. They sincerely value our business.

    I have to say that USAA is better then any civilian bank. Civilian banks really don't give a crap about people in the military. The best example I can give is that when my husband and I banked with a civilian bank (which had a branch on base) he had his wallet stolen in transit to Iraq, so I had to cancel our cards (which meant I didn't have a credit or ATM card). They let me cancel them just fine, but when it came time to re oder them, they would NOT allow me to re order the cards even though I had a POA and was the one that canceled them. They actually made my husband call from Iraq to sort the whole thing out. Since we've had USAA we've had no problems at all.

    My husband and I are using Wells Fargo right now. But we are going to switch to USAA.

    My husband isn't happy with Wells Fargo.

    I think USAA is better. It has free* worldwide ATM use. It's one stop shopping. They offer financial advise. And they are military oriented.

    I'm also looking forward to using their youth and teen banking to teach our kids about finance (when we have kids).

    USAA. They basically serve protection rigidity and their board is chock crammed with past provider individuals. shopper provider is likewise the ultimate i've got ever experienced of any marketplace, no longer to show banking.
