I have waived the account fee by doing the checking to savings monthly transfer since I opened the account - but they've now changed it so that that doesn't work anymore. I basically just got an email last month that said "Gee-Wiz, we're real sorry but that won't work anymore, too bad for you. Why don't you take out a $25,000 personal loan and get raped with interest so you can waive our new fee!"
I might be able to waive it if I set up an automatic monthly payment to my credit card account with them, but I don't know if that counts. I just find it ironic that in the face of people getting pissed about corporate america, corporate america is still blatantly trying to find new ways to increase already record level profits. The problem with a market theory of always-increasing GDP/Profit/Growth is that it has to eventually hit a ceiling. Economies cannot exponentially continue to grow forever when the world around them is based on limitations and scarcity. One things for sure, we will be hitting a major scarcity point within the next 10 years that will shake current economic beliefs/practices.
