Credit Union, that's all you need.  Many of the services you need from a big bank with none of the fees.


Open your account with $5.  Set up Direct Deposit.  Let a couple of deposits successfully accumulate so you have $$ in account.

Order checks, get debit card, obtain credit card if you like.

Go to old bank, close account, get check for remaining balance and deposit in new credit union account.


There is a wide credit union atm/counter sharing network


If you or your parents are a veteran of the US Armed forces, the USAA is the way to go.  Fee free ATMs across the country.
