    "While not often, there are times where I do have international transactions with my banking. Western Alliance Bank is the first bank where I have not had any issues at all with this. Add to that all the other great services they offer, and this is the only bank I will use now."

    "US Bank is a decent bank but to me the best bank is Chase. US Bank does not have branches in a lot of states so this would affect some people. Chase seems to have branches in every state and their online banking is top notch. "

    "While this website is very helpful with their various tools and advice it really takes a bit more work than I wanted to do to get the information I wanted. I really did not feel comfortable with inputting certain pieces of information and would rather have had a basic review of banks. The blogs were helpful however and provided some good points that I kept in mind while selecting a bank. "
