Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This account has a $5 monthly fee, waived with a minimum balance of $500+ or if reoccurring direct deposit of your merchant services

Early Account Termination Fee

If the account is closed within three months you have to pay a $26 fee, you also forfeit the bonus (this is the EATF for the personal account, not sure if it’s the same for the business account)

Our Verdict

There is also a personal $100 checking/$50 savings bonus. This business checking bonus is much better as there are no requirements. It’s not clear what type of business documents are required. We will be adding this to our list of the best checking account bonuses.

$2,500.00 minimum balance required to avoid monthly charge of $10.00. (In the fine print)

Still a money maker.


Could not open an account as a sole proprietor with my SSN/EIN. Needed business documents and so forth. YMMV.


Went into branch in florida they wanted me to sign up for sunbiz? Not even sure if it’s worth it at this point as I don’t understand what sunbiz is or implies
