Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker—neither one quite as good looking as the actors who portrayed them—robbed banks in the Depression era and died in a violent shootout on May 23, 1934 in Louisiana. In the course of their crime spree, they were suspected of 13 murders, some of them bank personnel or customers killed in the course of a robbery. If that’s not enough to try online banking, consider this statistic: on average 20 banks a day are robbed. Then there are all the lines and the paperwork—which rob you of your precious time!
And it’s not just the customers who prefer the convenience of online banking; banks are also making it easy for customers to avoid crossing the doorstep. Online banking means less paper for the banks to process and pay for, fewer staff members to hire and fewer physical locations to rent.
So if you’re still wondering if it’s for you, consider these additional reasons to try online banking.
