Bank charges under scrutiny again

By Staff Writer

There has been a recent report into bank charges released. No surprises but most bank charges have gone up, some of them way in excess of inflation. There are better value bank accounts out there but many people are put off by the hassle of finding a good value bank account and digging through all the data to get there. The internet is a great leveller of information asymmetry and now you can quickly and easily compare bank charges.

 

 

Justmoney.co.za South Africa's online guide to money takes the leg work out of finding and comparing bank charges with their bank charge calculators. All you need to do is fill in how you typically use your bank account and then the calculator will compare all bank accounts available in South Africa. You can check the exact details on the accounts and see if they are what you are looking for and if they are good value for money.

There is a simple form to fill in and then you will get a call back from a consultant who will not only be able to apply for you but provide you with free financial advice on where and how you can save money every month. It is that easy all you have to do is compare bank charges, choose the one that will work best for you and then click apply to get an obligation free call back and assistance in swapping your bank account to one that will save you money.
