Bank of America

The transactions that you expect to occur in your checking account each month will often dictate what type of account you open. If you prefer to use ATMs or electronic banking, certain types of checking accounts might be better suited to you.

Take a look at the variety of checking accounts offered at Bank of America, and consider how each account meets different needs.
