Commerce Bank signs change to Td Bank.
It finally happened. Commerce bank has changed forever. The new Bank "TD bank" had their new signs up. The logo reads as "America's Most Convenient Bank". It looks like the same or very similar to the old Commerce bank logo. Commerce bank had so many perks, rewards and great banking hours.
It truly was "America's Most Convenient Bank" in my opinion. These are the signs of our time, many banks have merged any their are many more to follow. We will wait and see the changes in the following months TD bank will make. Lets hope they keep the same programs, products and bank hours. The recent commercial with Regis and Kelly Ripa for TD bank sent a message of no change and even more perks are comming.
Lets hope they keep thier word. We'll keep you updated in the following weeks and months.

If you have not visited a Bank of America atm lately you will notice on some atm's a new way of depositing.
Bank of America has introduced atm deposits made easier. You dont have to fill anything out just deposit your check and let the atm machine do the rest.

The World of Wireless Wallets
Things are changing in the credit card industry. It is getting more personalized and its getting easier to make
credit card purchases. There are three new emerging technologies that can make your credit card information more
personal. The first technology is RIFD Cards. RIFD Cards are a small unique radio frequency ID chip that is embedded
in your credit card. Swing or swipe your card near a scanner, and your receipt prints. American Express, Mastercard, and Visa use this technology.
There are 30,000 plus stores across the United States accepting the new method of payment.
The second new technology is called Biometrics. It uses your fingerprint which triggers payments; a seven digit pin safeguards against
potential thieves. The technology is currently being tested at 3,000 locations in approximately 44 states.
The third and final technology that is emerging is called Cellular Cash. Near field communication (NFC) enabled cell
phones feature wire chips that can allow you to pay with a wave of your handset. These phones can also broadcast
virtual business cards. There are approximately 14 cell carriers worldwide that have signed on to this technology.
It will be a fantastic and exciting race to see what technology will emerge on top. Stay tuned for more updates.
