I want to advise who has a AIB account.
I went to the AIB branch in Clonskeagh on tuesday and told them I was going to change bank because of all the charges/fees applied by AIB although I never overdraft in over 12 years (since I had the account open)
and always paid the credit card on time. I asked how I could transfer some shares together with the account to the new bank namely Permanent TSB.
The guy called me in a office in the back and told me that they were going to stop charging the various fees if I didn't move the account to PTSB.
I agreed but I'm not very happy anyway. Permanent TSB advertise the free banking. AIB tries to rip you off with the charges , but when you go to see them to change bank....only then they offer to lift all banking fees.
I never received a letter telling me that I could get free banking.....
I don't think it's very honest. Has anyone had the same experience ?
Maybe they think most people are stupid and rip them off as much as they can.
