Number two on my list of things that annoy me about banks is their ridiculous fees. Banks make billions on top of billions a year and yet if I don’t do a number of certain transactions every month, I get charged a service fee. I must pay them money, to make sure my money has only slightly better protection than keeping it under my mattress. I mean the banks get to keep my money and invest it as they see fit and make more money off it, but I don’t see any nickels from their profits. Does that seem all that fair? I don’t think so.
That’s why I like my friends at BankMobile. They financially empower you to take control of your finances. They are a no fee, totally online banking system that you can use on your mobile phone or tablet. There is no trying to get to the bank in time before they close or keeping track of your balance to make sure you have enough in there to avoid a monthly fee. You are free from fees with BankMobile. You can practically do everything from your phone or tablet. Deposit checks. Pay bills. Send money to friends. There is no need to go to a bank with your friends at BankMobile. What about ATM fees from other ATMs? Direct deposit at least $500 a month into your account and boom, those fees get refunded back to you. As an adventurer who is always on the move, I do like the fact I’m not bogged down looking for a specific bank so I can pay my seaplane captain.
The folks at BankMobile recently had a video contest which I most eagerly entered. Enjoy the video below:
Behind the scenes.
This video was a little different than previous videos as I had an opening title sequence. I normally don’t put this style of opening on my videos, but the music fit very well for it. You may have recognized Ben the Snow Bear from my recent winter weather videos. He helped me out in this shoot. You also may recognize that “jug” from another video or two. I took the label off for this filming. The only difficulty associated with this shoot was getting the water to flow out correctly for the proper effect. Overall, I was very pleased with the results
The number one thing that annoys me about banks is that I can’t exchange money for bags of gold with dollar signs on them.
This video took 3rd place in BankMobile's video contest. You might just see this video elsewhere on their website!
