Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule, so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.
Need to know if this is a hard or soft pull before passing judgement, you should be able to find out before opening the account as you need to open in branch anyway. If it is a soft pull then it’s worth doing in my opinion.
