I've received all my bank wires on mon morning about 9am evertime on the dial. Never had a problem. Bank transfers on the other hand is a joke and a complete waste of time. Stay away from those if you have any other alternative.
If anyones bank is national and charges less then $20 post your bank name. I used to use a bank that charged $40 now I use US Bank which charges $20. Still waiting on 3 earliest 11/22
I would imagine most banks are like this, but they all probably have customer levels that don't charge for wires. I'm at BofA and don't get charged by them. You'll still get hit with fees from the intermediary banks used by FTP to get your wire to you though.

There is some discussion about it in this thread, but theoretically premium wires are supposed to be faster. But it's like, 3 days vs 4 or 5 days. I dunno, personally I haven't seen there to be too much of a difference, but I don't have a ton of experience comparing.
Is there no fees for bank wires under a certain amount? I know my bank does not charge anything for incoming wires and its a local credit union so likely doesnt go through any intermediary banks...
It absolutely will go through intermediary banks regardless. FTP cannot just wire money straight from their account to your bank. So you can't avoid fees just by making it smaller. Your best option is to actually wire the most possible so that the fee you get hit with (which doesn't depend on the size) is the smallest possible percentage of your withdrawal.
Are you guys getting 2-3 business day wires using premium or bank wire? I've been trying to ask ftp for a week now what the difference is. They assure me my money is safe and I should feel comfortable playing at Full Tilt Poker.
