Account has a monthly fee, but I’m not sure what it is. It’s waived if you do any of the following:
- Use direct deposit
- Make 10 debit card purchases per month
- Make 5 online bill payments per month
- Maintain $500 min daily balance
Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is an early account termination fee or not
Seems like a great bonus if it’s a soft pull to open, especially if there is some credit card funding. If anybody goes for this offer then please share your experiences below. I’ll add this to the best state specific checking promos if this is a soft pull.
