I'm getting increasingly ticked off and have been looking around to see who
does it better. NIB have a couple of 'free' account types, although the full
featured one isn't available from the word go. On a standard order between my
personal account and our joint one (both with BOI, different branches) BOI
charge me a withdrawal and lodgment charge on each transaction.
