Avoiding Fees

This account has no monthly fees and there is no mention of an early account termination fee in their fee schedule either.

Our Verdict

This is a pretty good bonus if you live near a branch. If you have any experiences with this bonus, please share them in the comments below. We haven’t put it in our best of list due to having to open the account in branch and them having a relatively small footprint.

Hey DoC! Just wanted to let you know that- as you speculated may happen soon- today there is a 5x eBay Bucks Offer that just came out, I got the email this morning. Great way stack with the gift card deals you posted recently.

A small question about the 5x eBay Bucks deals- in the fine print, it says you must pay with PayPal to qualify. Does that mean you can’t use a Credit Card directly on the eBay site to pay, and still get 5x Bucks? Or do you need to use your PayPal balance? I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere, which is why it surprised me. Thanks!


That’s my bank! :). You cannot fund with a credit card. But, for the other questions, I will check with my sister. She works there. Will let you know.


No hard pull, no monthly fees, and no credit card funding.
