Commerce Bank still allows bill pay and transaction downloads through direct
connect for free. Wachovia uses webconnect (you log in to the Wachovia site,
and you can download into your Quicken software). Wachovia is also free so
long as you initiate through their website.

Free is a relative concept. At Citibank it is free, if you get an
"anything counts" account and keep a very sizable balance. However, a
mortgage used to count, as wellm as credit cards and IRAs.

I bank at Commerce Bank and pay nothing for Quicken Banking or Online Bill
Payment through Quicken.

My wachovia account is free because I have a Wachovia credit card with
a large enough credit limit. Don't have to use it or have a balance -
just have it. Free includes direct connect and bill pay through quicken.

Virtually all of them do.
They just don't want you to know about it.
Every service, every fee, everything is negotiable.

They got your money.
You get the services you want, no charge, or some other institution
will gladly provide it.

What costs banks the most money is "item handling". That's a paper
transaction. Ask for bill pay, Quicken direct. If the bank says $$$
per month, just tell 'em you'll keep writing checks. Quicken and
bill pay actually is cheaper for the bank.

I don't think so.

I have to disagree here too. I believe the cost to the banks is higher.
That is the reason the banks no longer offer direct payment with
Quicken for free.

If you use their web-site. They have no direct connect capability.
Although the original poster did not indicated he wanted direct connect,
they way the statement was worded indicated such.

What was the dollar value of ALL the service charges that you paid to ANY
financial institution, including Intuit, in 2007?

$0.00

They all pay me interest.
I dumped Wachovia over a year ago because they systematically
dropped their checking account interest to 0.01%.

Don't get me started with Wachovia. I lost my MAC card and asked them to
overnight me one. It took 3 days to get to me so I called up and told them
I was not going to pay the overnight fee since they did not deliver as
promised. They didn't charge me the fee but when I got my statement I saw
an $8 service charge. I called up and they said is was for P2P usage. I
said "What is that?" and they explained it is $2 every time you call
customer service so I said I am being charged $8 to tell complain about a
charge for a service I didn't get?

I went to Commerce and told them the story and they said "Overnight a new
MAC card? Just stop into any Commerce and we will print you a new one ON
THE SPOT and we are open 7 days a week". Their on-line banking is also free
:)

$0

I have 3 credit cards with no annual fee. I pay the balance in full each
month so I never incure any interest or late fees,

I bank with Wachovia. Since I have a $100k HELOC (with $0 balance) I get
free checking and online banking through Quicken.

I only use Wachovia's ATMs so I don't pay any fees there.
