Thanks for not charging us five dollars to use your bank to hold my money, no really, thank you so very much.
And just for good measure, a bonus L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:
Give us your cash — for a fee
Inasmuch as banks feel that it’s OK to charge their customers for depositing cash, I am going to start charging banks for not being a customer.
Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase all justify these fees for depositing cash by asserting that their services take time and money. My justification for charging my fee is that the banks are saving a substantial amount of time and money by not having me as a customer, so they can share the savings with me.
Moreover, I’ll make it a nominal fee so that most won’t gripe.
