    Default US Banks

    Are there any US banks in DR where I could use their ATM cards and other services without charges?

    Scotia Bank is all over RD and is free to use for Bank Of America account holders.

    Who told you that?
    Upon reading this, I called Washington Mutual/Chase and they are saying that that is not true. That you would still be subject to a foreign transaction fee.
    Don't shoot the messenger, I am just telling you what they told me.

    How much is the forwign transaction fee, if you don't mind me asking? I am debating whether I would be better off to switch my job direct deposit to WAMU or not.

    Also, I have a Banco Popular account in Santiago, if I switch to Popular Bank in NYC can I take out at Banco Popular without fees?

    TEST drive the B of A/ Scotia combo as well!

    I got RD35/USD my last trip with NO fees out of the Scotia ATH, while Caribe Express was paying $RD34.90.

    Sking, I'm pretty sure the Popular bank you're talking about in NYC is the Puerto Rico-based bank, not the DR one (unless Banco Popular DR has opened up in NYC since I left which is very possible lol).

    I use my Bank of America card at Scotia Bank and have had no problems.
