Pleasant surprise from National Bank

OK this has nothing to do with language learning, but it's a good story anyway. Today I received an email from Heather, my National Bank manager which started like this:

Just letting you know I have taken the liberty of changing your account charge so that you will get a cheaper offering on your business chq account.

She went on to explain that she will drop our bank account fees and transaction fees, generating some savings.  I can't remember the last time a supplier wrote to let me know they are dropping their fees. You don't expect suppliers to do that, definitely not a bank. So if you're looking for a great bank manager for your business, call Heather.  Her details here:

OK, the second surprise from National Bank this week. I was playing around with my Iphone (I keep discovering new apps) and found this cheap cialis online

189280&mt=8″ target=”_blank”>Iphone app by National Bank.  It's called iBank. It's pretty amazing. You can do all your online banking using this app, and best of all it's free to use.  I have been complaining about National Bank's online banking platform, which is some way behind that of ASB and even Kiwibank, but this one Iphone offering pretty much makes up for some of the deficiencies in the browser-bassed online banking facility.

I took a screenshot here:

I don't know why they haven't marketed this widely. I have to say it's pretty good.

On the topic of Iphone apps, I'm seeing more and more language learning offerings out there. I do wonder if we should look at creating an iphone app to supplement our language courses.

p/s: Thanks Sam for showing me how to

take the iphone screenshot.
