I already have an Electric Orange checking account and Orange Savings with ING Direct, and I think this would be a good bank to open our joint account with because you can link your account to external accounts, which would solve the problem Mr. Spaniel has of having to write himself a check every month. It would also make it easy to transfer our monthly throwaway cash to our individual accounts at whichever banks we like. The problem is that we are limited to one checking account there per customer, and I am not getting rid of my personal account there to set up a joint one! The search goes on!
Ultimately, we'd like to have joint savings and checking accounts, with smaller individual checking accounts for individual purchases that would be healthier for us each not to account to each other for ;).
