Dear all,

how to understand 'get banked' in the following context:

About a Dutch bank - Postbank.
“We’re typically Dutch. Solid. No frills. With us, the customer is in control. We now use the catchphrase: ‘Do you get banked, or do you bank at the Postbank?’”

Thanks
A.

    "Get banked" in that sentence implies that the banking happens to the customer — in other words, the bank the customer deals with is in total control of the relationship, whereas the Postbank is saying that the customer controls the relationship in their business. To "get X~ed" is to have X happen to one. Staff "get fired"; seeds "get planted"; cars "get driven"; etc.

    Alas, in most banking relationships, the customers 'get banked'! :(
