Why am I not surprised that the Star Tribune only tells part of the story?- There is nothing in the story about individual responsiblity or about how a business needs to make money.

Further, TCF is not going to charge a fee for all acounts. Accounts will be free for people that have atleast $500 in their account, or atleast one direct deposit of $100 each month, or a $2500 combined household balance.

Get the story right!

well, did anyone stop to think why the bank change its accounts...eventually every bank will have to change somethings to make up their profit difference that they will lose by the gov't restrictions applied on overdraft fees. So whatever plenty of other banks everyone is going to will change something or the other and getting rid of totally free checking accounts is the easiest and most convinient for any bank to do.
