    Ummm, maybe you should read the articles you cite:

    14,000 Coloradans move $100M into credit unions

    As the social media-sparked Bank Transfer Day approaches, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) reports that over 650,000 people have joined credit unions in the last four weeks. In Colorado, the group reports 14,000 new accounts and $100 million in new deposits.

    Notice the date. Amazing that they were able to see *into the future* to figure out that it would be a success.

    Reading is a crucial skill. Perhaps you should master that skill before you attempt to be an advisor to others?

    • I got the amount wrong, for some reason I read it as 400M. But you don’t need to wait for the 5th to know it’s been a success. I moved my account from Wells Fargo to a credit union way before November 5th, and in any case it usually cannot be done within a single day. The fact that from the time the outcry started till now thousands and thousands of people ditched the big banks – that’s what makes it a success.
