Something you may have picked up on is that lately? Customers are not so happy with their banks, particularly if their banks are Bank of America or Citigroup. The websites apparently never work, there are the rage-inducing fees, and there's the general feeling that Brian Moynihan and Vikram Pandit? Don't actually care about them. When was the last time Brian or Vik called, huh? When was the last time they did something nice, for no reason other than wanting to? When was the last time they thought to say "You look really pretty tonight"? Can't remember, stopped counting and not since the checking account was opened. And while it would be one thing if every other bank treated its customers like they were expendable, some don't. Take Société Générale Group-owned-Komerční Banka. Not only do they act like they really care but give people a reason to be loud, proud customers.
Vikram? Brian? You might want to learn some new moves. We're not saying people will go for it, but what other options do you have at this point? At the very least, consider asking branch managers to float the rumor you're considering including a Vickles/Bri-O surprise with every transaction and see if it gets any traction.
