Getting the best out of your banking accounts

By Staff Writer

Everybody needs a bank account these days. Getting the best bank account for how you want to use it can be an arduous process. Many people stick with the bank that their parents used, or the bank of their first employer. However these banking accounts might not be best for your needs. Justmoney streamlines the process and makes it easy for you to compare banking accounts. So how do you do it?

 

 

Justmoney has built a bank account charge comparison calculator that allows you to quickly and easily compare banking accounts by just filling in the usage that you normally do. Get yourself your latest bank statement and plug the details into the calculator and you will quickly see which banking account is best for you. There are a number of different types of account out there and each one is best for a certain usage profile. The best way to work out your usage profile is to use the details that you already have on a statement.

If you do a lot of transactions then a managed fee account could be best, if you only bank online and swipe then an electronic orientated account would work out cheaper. If you want full service banking at the branch, then find out which banking account will deliver for you. There are as many banking accounts as ways to use them, so get the most out of your banking accounts in 2010 by comparing bank account charges with Justmoney today.
