Facebook Barre Savings Bank Thank you! Because we came so close to our goal of 500 Fans we will be contributing the full $1,000 to the Quabbin Education Foundation for Students & Teachers (QUEST) and the Wachusett Regional School District! Stay tuned for more information. Don Fagen Why don’t you give more? Barre Savings Bank Hi Don! Thanks for your question. We aren’t donating more through our Facebook campaign because this $1,000 donation is in addition to the money we donate through the year to local organizations, including schools. In fact, in 2009 Barre Savings Bank donated over $10,000 to local schools, and we are committed to continuing our support for education in 2010. Don Fagen Thanks for the info.

Fears My problems with Peoples Federal Savings Bank by Jonathan Kamens <email@example.com> Last updated: $Date: 2006/06/22 20:51:01 $ Recent changes 2006-06-21: Believe it or not, today, over four years after I closed my last Peoples account, I got spam from them that began "Dear Valued Customer"! What a riot! 2003-03-26: I havent updated this page in a Long Time. I actually closed my Peoples accounts on March 18, 2002. When I closed the accounts, no one at the bank asked why or whether they could do anything do change my mind. Great customer service. I moved my accounts to Mercantile Bank. There were a couple of minor bumps at the beginning, but overall Im much happier with them than with Peoples. Interestingly enough, Mercantile recently went through the same computer upgrade that Peoples did, and they avoided nearly all the mistakes about which I complained to Peoples. Maybe they visited this Web site when planning their upgrade! A few months ago we ended up moving some of our accounts from Mercantile to Citizens Bank to get a low rate on a home equity loan. Were happy with their service as well. 2002-01-10: I received a new version of the letter Id received on January 7, this one with the correct date on it. 2002-01-09: I received E-mail from Gaffney about the date error in his letter. 2002-01-07: I received a letter from Peoples, dated December 4 but postmarked January 5, inviting me to come to the bank to discuss my concerns with them. I declined the invitation. 2002-01-02: An Allston/Brighton Tab reporter came to my house to take my picture for the story theyre supposedly going to run about my problems with Peoples. 2001-12-22: Almost five months after I first asked them to do so, Peoples finally explained the discrepancy between my interest calculation “. . . will have a social media and theirs. Whats the story? site. . . it may be created by some service until June 2001, when they decided to "upgrade" their fanatical upset member . . . I have been a customer of Peoples Federal Savings Bank in in Brighton, Massachusetts, for several years. I was perfectly satisfied with their computer systems. (Imagine blogspot.ihatexyzcreditunion.com) From my perspective, the upgrade was a disaster. The manner in which they did it was not secure, they messed up ATM access to my accounts, they messed up the status of my accounts in their computer, they charged me service charges they should not have charged me, they messed up the ATM user interface, etc. Weve all heard stories about terrible customer service from banks, so you might say these problems arent particularly noteworthy. However, most of the horror stories come from the "big banks" (e.g., everyone in Massachusetts knows at least one horror story about Fleet, its predecessor BankBoston, or its predecessor BayBank). What makes my story different is that Peoples is small (with only a few branches) and claims to be a "neighborhood bank." Source: Credit Union Magazine, July 2010
