I don't think Vanguard or Fidelity has bank services, if they do I doubt they compare to USAA for providing services to service members especially when out of the country.


I use WellsFargo for banking and brokerage nowadays. WF banking has all the features of USAA (everything free, but even has local branches) and the brokerage is all free as well (no commissions on mutual funds, stocks, ETFs, etc). Vanguard has significantly lower expense ratios on its mutual funds which alone makes it a better place to consolidate investments than USAA, but not quite as good as WellsFargo.

But I have to admit that USAA paid me about $1000 last year to open a checking account with them. You can't argue with free money.
