Well this conversation has taken a little turn, but its all good information so I'll jump in with a bit more. We have our investment (brokerage) accounts at Charles Schwab. I just phoned my account manager and he told me that they have an "Investor" checking account with no annual fees, no conversion fees on foreign exchanges, and they rebate any ATM charges at the end of each month. So, if you do business with Charles Schwab, you might want to look into this type of account. I think I'll open one before we leave for Thailand.

Just checked with my free checking account at Washington Mutual and they only charge $2 per foreign withdrawal and 1%. I'm happy I don't have to switch banks now!

Yes, that was a very nice change WaMu made! Too bad other banks are going in teh opposite direction.
