Let's say your bank charges you a $12 monthly maintenance fee; it costs you on average $5 to withdraw cash from a non-bank ATM, and you withdraw cash about twice a month; your checking account is linked to your savings account so that payments go through when you overdraft - which happens about four times a year at $10 per day; lastly, for that weekend where you thought you had enough money in your account, an unexpected payment went through and you try to use your card a few (e.g., three) times at different stores or restaurants - your bank slaps you with a $35 fee for each attempt.

Based on the above hypothetical example, you'd save $409 each year by switching to X checking from Bank X, and even more if you also switched your current savings account to . All that money could be put to better use - for example, a trip to Hawaii...

Monthly Maintenance Fee $12 x12 $144
ATM Fee $5 x24 $120
Overdraft Fee $10 x4 $40
Non-Sufficient Funds Fee $35 x3 $105
