This is a short post because it is serving as a forum for people to share their views on whether or not they are going to be moving their money out of big, corporate banks and into small locally-owned banks and credit unions.

    You know what happens when a lot of people move their money into a small local bank? They become a big corporate bank! Cheers!

    No, actually there are major differences between credit unions and banks which don't have to do with size at all.

    I made a video protest recently for my blog.  It is quite funny even if you are pro-megabank.  I called my credit card's customer service line to do some negotiating.  Having a bit of leverage, I thought it presented a great opportunity to mess with them a little and make a few points about the unfairness of the credit card lending system.  Since it's a protest at home, I called it my kitchen counterstrike against Bank of America.  I think you might enjoy it.
