While I would like to get a free Touch, I am unsure about the bank in question (though, with this economy, any bank should be looked at with suspicion I suppose).

Well I figured that, but in all the news I've read on banks and the bailouts etc....I have never once heard of them. Which is either really good, or really bad.
