With the number of online /Craigslist sales happening these days, many police departments and banks are offering community room usage for transacting safety in public. This thread is to list banking perks that are less common but may be useful
I did not include notary service because, while useful, many banks limit it to signing bank documents only. Even branch to branch the policies may differ.
It is very hard to find this information consolidated anywhere online, or a list of which institutions offer the best/lowest cost services…so let’s try to use this thread to do so.
One issue is that its mainly smaller community banks and CUs that offer the services for free.
Off the top of my head, coin counting, use of free community rooms, free courier pickup service, and rent collection for landlords are 4 services which Readers would find very useful, but feel free to add other useful services. Hopefully this thread can develop into a helpful resource
FREE COIN COUNTING
Bridgeview Bank - https://bridgeviewbank.com/ - Not only that but they have a nice 5% savings account that can only be funded by coins.
FREE COMMUNITY ROOMS
FREE COURIER SERVICE
Not free, but cheaper than a property manager at $65/year)
