So, up to this point I've had a joint account with my mom, which they are ready to sever now that they are changing banks. I've always had a bank of america account.
For now I just need a checking account, eventually when I find a better (or second) job, I'll need a savings. I haven't actually gone inside of a bank of america in a year or two, so I'm considering an online bank like Ally. I have less than 5k and therefore will probably not be needing any special accounts, or getting any awesome interest rates.
My boyfriend and I are not settled into our location, so I'm assuming credit unions are out, considering we may pack up and move across the country in a year or two, but I really don't know anything about them either.
So Uh, I guess advice? I will gladly read helpful articles that will inform me on how to make this decision
