Always have 6-12 months of cash to pay bills in your US bank account, doesnt seem that hard to do...
yea the have 6-12 months of cash to pay bills is kind of hard to do when your money is stuck online. Why do I have so much online? Oh maybe the 30 days I couldn't make any withdrawals from epassporte because they locked my account for hitting 5k in their account with no warning. And only being able to withdraw 600 a day, which requires physically going to an atm. Which somedays if I go at 9pm then the next day i can't go back until 9pm so obviously there are many days I don't withdraw everything. Not to mention that the $600 is in 20's, which adds up unless you deposit it every day.
But the point is, its your money, you should be able to access it whenever you want. How would you like your bank to say, "I'm sorry, we are not going to give you want you want to withdraw right now, you should have planned better and had 6 months of living expenses on hand."
I have faith in cake, their customer service has always been stellar and they reply quickly. I just think it is dumb to limit check withdrawals to $2500 with a $35 fee. Imagine the low stakes guys who want to cash out $200, but have to pay $35 to do so. And this other guys says the limit is 9k, we will see and I hope so, but for now my cashier says $2500.
