Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Essential Checking $150 Bonus

This account has no monthly service fee to worry about.

Access Checking $250 Bonus

This account has a monthly service fee (unsure what this is), this is waived if you do any of the following:

  • maintain a minimum balance of $5,000
  • combined deposit balances of $25,000, or
  • combined deposit and loan balances of $50,000. Loan balances include consumer and mortgage loans.

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find any mention of an early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Now that we know it’s a soft pull I do think this one is worth doing so will be adding this to our best bank account bonus page.

CT Resident. Applied 9/14 and approved tentatively, because you can only fund through ACH (no debit / no credit card funding). In order for them to open your account, you have to verify trial deposits, once verified they will open your account.

Not sure, but if they do they can’t be too sensitive. See this post: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/ct-only-union-savings-bank-150-250-checking-bonus/#comment-810914

Update: they ARE Chex sensitive, before applying with them online a few weeks ago I was at 10/12. Was able to open in branch yesterday, and was specifically told my online application was flagged by ChexSystems for having opened so many accounts recently. They were very forthcoming and cordial about it, otherwise it went smoothly as they resumed my previous application. No mention of any early account termination fee or bonus forfeit in their terms.
