Chase Emails Customers About Fees During Hurricane Sandy

Chase bank is communicating with customers about Hurricane Sandy. Before the storm hit land, the company emailed customers about plans to waive fees. It's an interesting email and shows the company's kinder side.

On its website, Chase repeats a version of the open paragraph and provides customers with information about open branches. The branch locator allows customers to search for branches and see the status of each.

As of this writing, neither Bank of America nor HSBC have similar messages on their websites.
