Unlike J.P. Morgan (JPM), Citi (C) and Wells Fargo (WFC), BofA (BAC) is not providing automatic fee waivers to customers living in Sandy’s path. Instead, BofA says customers may qualify for some waivers but only if they first call the bank via an 800 number or by visiting a branch. Most banks also are proactively waiving fees on using out-of-network ATMs, but here again BofA adopts a stricter policy.

  • B of A doesn't seem to get it. They are going to have to cut back on profits in order to restore their lost reputation of good business ethics. You can't keep up the same pace when your customers are in poverty.

  • BAC does not need poor customers. It is not a charity, like Acorn!

  • What some idiots just cant get it through their head is this is our money BAC is giving away. We own the company. Obama screwed the stockholders in GM by taking the company away from its rightful owners and giving it to the unions. In return the Unions gave him multi-millions of dollars back in contributions. Neat.

  • Yeah!!! Give Obama 4 more years.... lol lol
    He will straighten it out like Benghazi. Or maybe like the ATF and the 2,000 guns they gave to the Mexican drug cartels.

  • Not every customer living in Sandy's path suffered damages so I do know why BAC should just give blanket waivers of fees. There are a lot of people that will game the system and just take advantage of the situation. BAC has already given a million dollars to help out. My goodness, why does everyone expect this bank to do it all?

  • Bank of America is not your mother!! Grow up and realize they are a business trying to make a profit after they were beaten to the ground and Bush and Obama flooded them with money to survive.
    Then congress hit them with more rules to kill their profits.
    Then they were hit with many, many lawsuits because Countrywide was forced on them by congress.

  • What this indicates is that BAC is more concerned about meeting their revenue targets than the other large banks. They will forgo this opportunity to build some goodwill in order to protect their revenue. It should be a red flag to investors.
