This account has no monthly fees

Early Account Termination Fee

According to the fee schedule there is a $25 early account termination fee if closed within three months.

Fee schedule shows $25 etf for closing in under 3 months. The account description mentions an inactivity fee, but that doesn’t appear on the fee schedule.

Looks like $25 fee if closed within the first 3 months.

$100 seems a little low to be the DP you want to see. Anyone gave this a shot yet?

DP: not a hard pull. Just opened in branch, which’s pretty smooth.
