3 banking dealbreakers

One thing I’ve heard often from experts in the banking industry is that there’s a lot of inertia around people’s banking choices. What I mean by that is, people tend to stay with the same bank until it does something so heinous, so unforgivable, that they are forced to move on.
Of course, there are some good reasons for sticking with a bank. For one, most banks these days “feel” the same, in that they all have websites that allow you to perform simple actions like checking your balance, a debit card that lets you make online and point-of-sale purchases and hopefully some ATMs in your area where you can take money out. So, in most cases, you’re not going to see a huge upgrade switching from one to another, as you would with say, switching from scrapple to bacon.
For another, switching banks  can be kind of a pain! Especially if you have a lot of auto debits set up to pay bills or links with other accounts, switching can be a real hassle and carries the risk that you won’t have the money in your new or old account to cover a charge, resulting in an overdraft.
Still, there are some things banks do that can, and should, make you look for the exit. Here are a few.
What do you think? Do you have dealbreakers when it comes to your bank?
