CNN Money: CU Is 'Best Bet' For Free Checking
EW YORK (3/19/13)--Consumers' "best bet" for finding a free checking account is to go to a credit union, CNNMoney said in a Monday article.

If members meet certain conditions, 96% of credit union checking accounts are free or can become free, Bankrate.com said.

"Once again, free checking is the rule rather than the exception among the largest credit unions," said Greg McBride, Bankrate's senior financial analyst. "That's in stark contrast to the sharp year-over-year declines that we continue to see in the banking sector."
