Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are wiling to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

hi, what is the best way to do a "direct deposit" to avoid the BankOfAmerica monthly fee of $12..

- my work doesn't offer that.
- i can't switch a bank for now.

i found this : https://www.doctorofcredit.com/knowledge-base/list-methods-banks-count-direct-deposits/#Bank_of_America

but i don't have Serve, i have the redbird (target) so if i understand i need to deposit cash inside in a Target store and then send an ACH to myself ?

or i could put with my Bankof debit card as usual ?

or you have/know a better way.

thanks in advance!

There is the option of $1500 daily minimum balance, or you can open a business account and do your own direct deposit (then you'd have to deal with waiving that monthly fee), and interestingly enough it seems like Robinhood works as well, that should be easy.
I'll tell you later

What's your proof that she's a she.  :)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
