Wachovia’s banking operations were bought by Citi today. I have an account at Wachovia. It isn’t my primary account but I do use it on a regular basis. Looking over the information Wachovia has provided about the sale it looks like the sale won’t affect me at all. This is the first that the financial turmoil has directly affected one of my financial accounts but it just isn’t a big deal. The only thing I’m somewhat concerned about is whether they will honor the Way2Save bonus.
My advice on handling the current financial turmoil. Pay attention but don’t freak out.
