Nice, I am really thinking about making an account with Ally. Mint is amazing and has been my go to application for keeping my finances on track. Have you used the check deposit feature in Paypal before?

@docrock Yeah, it is a bummer that the local banks are going crazy like that. Aren't most of the "local" banks owned by a mainland company?
