Best of Boston

1998 Best Bank

USTrust Bank

Let the big boys fight it out among themselves. For our money, the best deal in town in USTrust. Free checking with no minimum balance. Free checks, even, with some accounts. Decent rates for consumer loans. Best of all, no charge for using your ATM card, even at most other banks. If that’s not enough, there are still real tellers who are genuinely friendly and always free, unlike Fleet’s.
