When I look at when I get my bank statements, I have a hard time finding any bank that is consistent.
Bank of America is a particularly good example of how erratic these can be:
Statement until 2016-05-05, notification email sent on 2016-05-07 Statement until 2016-06-07, notification email sent on 2016-06-09 Statement until 2016-07-06, notification email sent on 2016-07-08 Statement until 2016-08-08, notification email sent on 2016-08-10 Statement until 2016-09-07, notification email sent on 2016-09-09 Statement until 2016-10-05, notification email sent on 2016-10-07 Statement until 2016-11-03, notification email sent on 2016-11-05 Statement until 2016-12-06, notification email sent on 2016-12-08
And the weirder thing is, this is after I called about a year ago to request that the statements end on the 3rd banking day of the month (they let me choose between the 3rd-18th, or the last banking day).
For the life of me, I cannot comprehend why it's so hard for them to have any kind of consistency.
Why in the world do banks seem to be so random about when they end their statements?
Isn't it just a computer doing the work? Or is it some dude sitting there processing these by hand, getting tired, and putting it off until the next day? Or are they pulling accounting tricks of some sort?
