A Consumer Guide to Shopping Around
Maryland PIRG
Last updated: 1/5/2012

Over the last few months, PIRG staff and students visited 392 bank and credit union branches around the country. We collected information on bank fees. We also conducted a “secret shopper” study to determine whether banks were complying with the Truth In Savings Act, which requires them to give consumers full fee schedules on request. Download our brochure to read our tips for consumers on how to avoid bank fees.

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
