Dominion Bank and Canada Trust - the latter which resulted from the
merger of Waterloo Trust and Huron and Erie Trust(or Canada Trust,
Huron and Erie) of Waterloo Ontario and London Ontario, respectively.

Our US banks go thru the same idiocy of successors. Our biggest bank
in Naperville, IL, has had at least 4 different names in the past 30
years, we still call it by the original name from 45 years ago when we
want to let an old-timer know something as it is a local landmark on
the corner of the biggest downtown intersection.

<SNIP example of bank mergers>
First Pennsylvania Bank was taken over by Corestates bank, which was
taken over by First Union Bank, which was taken over by Wachovia, which
was taken over by Wells Fargo. This amounts to 5 different names in the
past 25 years, maybe within a 20 year period.

Unlike the American banking system, BANKS in Canada are regulated.
There are also trust companies, which are not chartered banks, and
Trust companies merge and change names fairly often.
Credit unions likewize.
VERY occaisionally, a "chartered bank" will absorb or merge with a
trust company - and this is what happened in the case of TD Canada
Just wanted to know if anyone in the US knows what the "TD" in TD Ameritrade
Canadians are disqualified from answering.
I'm a TD customer in Canada and I'll vouch about them being a good customer
service oriented bank. Their chequing fees are higher than most BUT their
investing services, tax planning, credit departments are helpful and
friendly. They have the friendliest tellers who actually work to answer
questions and try to find the best appointment times for their experts.
They manage some of the lowest cost market etf funds in Canada. I do all my
retirement and taxable investing thru them now. Great websites to purchase
and sell equities and funds. prompt tax receipts in the mail. Prompt
confirmations of transactions from investments.
I also have my house and life insurance with them. Reasonable rates,
especially for house insurance.
I really hope they give great service in the US as I get here. They really
want to grow along the east coast. They merged their Waterhouse division
into Ameritrade. Hope it works well for them.
Oh, how perfectly awful! Where's the empathy? the inclusiveness? Do you not
embrace these values?
Character matters. Courage is doing the right thing even when nobody's
looking. Don't wait for your ship to come in, row out to meet it. It's
better to help somebody up than to put them down... You know the drill.
I have something much more schoolteacher-friendly than your link:
<Tegger snickers and runs off>
I just throw them in a basket, and when I get about ten pounds, I take them
to the Longhorn Saloon in Las Vegas, and change them in. Most I ever
changed in at one time was $700. Handy at Christmas, or when I want a treat
of a bottle of Glennfiddich single malt.
Heart surgery pending?
Read up and prepare.
Ditto here. Our bank is actually cheerful. They drop them in the
counter and it deposits in rollable stacks. I usually have a pretty
good idea of the amount when I take them in and they are accurate.
BTW - This is not a new capability. We have a 100 or so year old coin
counter in our museum. Same principle as new ones. Dump coins in a
hopper and they come out in stacks ready for rolling. Of course it
isn't digital but the stack trays are graduated with lines to tell how
much is in the stack. Doesn't work anymore because coins are
different that they were in early 1900's
My bank doesn't have a coin counter. I have filled an empty Rolaids
bottle with coins and keep it in my car console. When I eat at the
drive through, I give correct change. If the line is long and I have
a lot of quarters, I pay with all change.
I trade my rolls in about once every couple of months. When I give
them 5 or 6 rolls, they just give me the cash. If I brought in 30 or
40 rolls once a year, they might feel a bit overwhelmed. But I agree
with several other posters who suggested getting a more friendly bank.
