Most of our money is with “brick & click” banks: Chase and US Bank. But I also have an IRA with etrade and also a small savings account there. I can attest that etrade is still in the banking business!

Edward: It appears that you’re correct about E*Trade — I’ll update. That’s really interesting because back in 2010 tehy transitioned customer account to Discover Bank. That’s actually how I wound up with a Discover Bank account.

They said they were doing this so they could “focus more exclusively on providing optimal investing solutions to our customers.” Apparently they’ve since decided to get back into the banking game.

That’s kind of odd, because my savings account with them was opened in 2008.
