I am refinancing a home and needed to get a few closing documents notarized. The UPS Store charges $5.00 per page, which can really add up, so I started searching for some free notary options. After doing a Google search I found a few free options like the local library, city hall, credit unions, banks, and the police station of all places. The most convenient option for me was my bank so I walked over to the branch to talk to the manager. It turns out that Bank of America offers free notary services to account holders. They even allow you to make an appointment to have your documents notarized.
Update: Since COVID-19 my local bank does not offer free notary services. It is best to call ahead to verify.
How To Get Documents Notarized for Free at Bank of America
To make an appointment just log into your Bank of America account and click on the “Make an Appointment” link below the Activity Center section on the right side of the page. After that simply select purpose (I indicated it was to see a banker), select a time, and confirm your appointment. It was very easy!
Checking with your local bank branch office is a great way to get free notary services if you need them.
