When I was looking for an acct a year ago both chase & td told me they don't have any options without fees & capital one cmiiw but from what I've read here seems like u get charged & have to get reimbursed not interested in dealing with that. The other 2 I've never heard of but if u can explain briefly why any of these are better I might consider switching cuz I don't really love investors

Schwab has a pretty decent no fees account. They do a hard pull to open, but at the moment there's a $100 incentive for opening one. Very solid customer service.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

FTFY for clarification,  however ; they both online banking . Great customer service , high mobile deposit limits per day/month . Very impressed with them. Ally is a little cautious on and will freeze an account for a little bit for a high bounced check IME . (Fwiw,  I've heard from freinds with experience that investors bank is only that good for business accounts . Otherwise , nothing special).
Both sites are very clear to understand.
GIYF!  :)

I opened an account a few years ago, can I get a referral fee or can I can that account opening retroactively?

I find that Schwab is very easy to deal with and their customer service is really good. One of the issues I run into sometimes is that ATM fees don't always show up in their system and in order to get the ATM fees refunded you have call them up every month.

A random related Question:
I live in Israel:
If I need to pay my rent and my landlord does not allow me to pay with a credit card, any ideas of how to somehow get credit card points?
Maybe getting cash back someway?
To be more specific I need a way to take money out from a bank account and credit card points.
I know of Olehpay but they charge 1.9 %. Any other way?

If it's for stam spending on credit card then no other way AFAIK . If your looking to hit bonus then 1.9 isn't bad compared to others

OlehPay is also likely cheaper than cashing checks at a money changer.

Be careful since the ATM in Israel will charge you a fee also. I am not sure how Capital One works but they might not reimburse for the fees the the ATM charges.
