Why BMO Harris Bank?

BMO Harris Bank is headquartered in Chicago, and has about 500 physical locations across 8 states. For their checking accounts, BMO expands its reach by joining the Allpoint ATM network, which gives you access to about 40,000 fee-free ATMs. They also offer online and mobile tools to help you take care of most banking tasks without needing to go in-branch.

BMO offers personal checking, savings products like accounts, MMAs and CDs, business and commercial accounts, home and auto loans, credit cards, and IRAs. They also offer their "Premier Services", which is a wealth management service that aims to help you define and work toward a financial plan.

While BMO offers more accounts and services than some of the online-only banks, most of their rates are only competitive with the big banks (read: not very high), so keep that in mind.
