Thanks, Irene! Banks Offer Temporary Fee Reprieve

iStockphoto

Irene did some serious destruction on her tour up the East Coast, but some banking customers won’t see extra damage in the form of account fees.

Chase will waive select fees for account holders in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York — the three Irene-affected states where it has branches — through Sept. 4. Until then, those customers won’t be held liable for using another bank’s ATM ($2), overdrawing their checking account ($34 per transaction, up to three per day), using overdraft protection ($12), or paying late on a credit card, business or consumer loan. (On a credit card, that saves up to $35.)

Wells Fargo will waive select fees for account holders in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York through Sept. 2. Consumers won’t pay for using another bank’s ATM ($3) or making an early withdrawal from a certificate of deposit (a minimum $25). A spokeswoman says customers with further hardship can call customer service for other assistance on a case-by-case basis.

HSBC says it is offering assistance on a case-by-case basis, which may include replacing debit or credit cards, sending replacement statements, waiving some account fees and offering free telephone payments (regularly $20). Account holders in affected areas should call the toll-free number on the back of their debit or credit card to request a waiver or other help.

A spokesman for SunTrust says the bank will offer extensions on loans for customers in Irene-affected areas, also on a case-by-case basis. Those borrowers should reach out to their local branch or call the bank’s toll-free number for aid.

Capital One says it will offer assistance on a case-by-case basis, which may include waiving fees, reducing credit card APRs and devising special repayment plans. Customers can reach out to their local branch, call the bank’s toll-free number or send a request online, a spokesman said.

A Citibank spokesman says in emergency situations such as this, it waives fees and provide access to cash for account holders in affected areas. Call customer service to request assistance.

Bank of America says it will offer a number of “hardship” programs to help customers in Irene affected areas. “Typically, we waive the fees,” says a spokesman. Call customer service to request assistance.

Spokesmen for the banks said the decision was made to help consumers in areas where flooding and power outages may limit consumers’ ability to reach a branch or access their account online, or prevent the bank branch from reopening. “We know this is very stressful for our consumers and we want to put in as much extra effort as possible to help them,” says a Chase spokesman. Currently, 90% of the 1,015 New York-area Chase branches are already open, and most ATMs are working. An HSBC spokesman says just 15 of its East Coast branch locations remain closed due to storm damage. Bank of America expects minimal disruptions to its operations Monday, a spokesman says, and is deploying mobile ATM and banking centers to help customers in areas with widespread power outages where branches cannot reopen.

      About Belly Button
      The belly button is a scar on the abdomen from where the umbilical cord is removed at birth. On humans, the scar can appear as a depression, otherwise known as an innie, or as a protrusion, otherwise known as an outie. Besides being able to be sorted into these two categories, belly buttons can vary in size, shape and depth from person to person. Because belly buttons are scars, they are not defined by genetics. They can be useful for telling identical twins apart when there are no other identifying marks.

    • I have to agree with you. I went to the store simply bcaeuse I ran out of something that we really need. OMG, it was like a mad house! I had to get gas bcaeuse I was almost on E WELL, another fiasco . I couldn’t get INTO the gas station bcaeuse of the line. I know it’s good to be prepared, but they sent everyone into a panicked frenzy!

    • Buggy Prof – I enjoyed your post. It is nice to come arcsos a blogger who is knowledgeable and who takes the time to post a blog that is lengthy enough to provide evidentiary support for opinion and theory. Too often blogs entries are simply exclamatory statements of prejudice (see, eg.g “Very rational, but it doesn’t serve the interests of the liberal media and their masters in the Democrat party” — Opinion without reasoning is a waste of time. Thank you for taking the time and effort to provide your reasoning. I will try in a later post to respond in a like fashion, but for now, please accept my gratitude.
