    Default Bank Spurns Ordinary Kiwis

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/ar...ectid=10548674

    Fantastic news!

    Get the proles out of my bank. I don't want to have to queue with the great unwashed, and now I don't have to.

    Posh, me.

    Roses (Outkast). English Roses, even.

    The refrain's always been catchy but now good enough for the official HSBC jingle.

    I've been paying $15 a month on most accounts for years...perhaps I'm paying too much!

    When they go under they cant fleece enough tax out of us fast enough to keep the CEO CFO and the gang in the lifestyles they have become acustomed to from those fees...

    Key made a cool 30 million from fee's...how ironic...

    Their interest rates and fees have always been substantially less competitive than other banks, and they have few branches too of course.

    I can only assume they're trying to attract the hi-so consumer, who's happy to pay more for a little bit of prestige and feel-good factor.

    HSBC were great to us when we lived in the UK, but wouldn't recommend them over here.

    I think they're ace. They let me tfr funds all over the show FOC. Still, their interest rates offered are a little less, that is true. The bastards get you in the end, no matter where you go.
