The free checking account has no monthly fee to worry about. According to the fee schedule you’ll be charged an early account termination fee of $25 if the account is closed within 180 days of opening.
Offer is significantly better than it was before as you can open online and there is no monthly fee to worry about. Still by no means the best checking sign up bonus, but better than it previously was especially with the credit card funding. As always share your data points in the comments below.
