Are you overpaying for bank fees?

We recently took to the streets of Saskatoon and Regina to talk to hard working Canadians about bank account fees.

When I use the term bank fees, what's your initial feeling?

  • "Uh, stress."
  • "I don't like paying bank fees."
  • "Frustration, probably."
  • "It's not nice to see another deduction, that's just the bank taking money."
  • "Bank fees are too much."
  • "I don't see why I should be charged for using the money that I worked for."
  • "There's a lot of distaste for having to pay bank fees."

What if I told you there was a place where you could get a bank account and have no fees attached to it?

  • "I would sign up."
  • "I would be down for that!"
  • "Oh, that would be great."
  • "No fees? Take it."
  • "I would like to go with that bank."
  • "I'd want to join that!"
