Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This account has no monthly fees to worry about.

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.

Our Verdict

They also have a $150 checking bonus. It isn’t clear if the annual $100 bonus requires a direct deposit or not, but it’s not that great of a deal anyway. If you put $4,000 into a 2% APY account you’d be earning $80 anyway and some accounts earn at much higher rates than that. The initial $128 bonus is OK, but nothing crazy. Could be better if they allow credit card funding. If anybody signs up then please share your experiences in the comments below.

I opened this account and credit card funded $500. The )150 bonus is no longer running as far as I know .rhe $128 only requires direct deposit set up. The $4000 requirement is for the yearly $100 bonus.

This bank is friendly but getting to the branch isn’t that convenient. I work in the same city but getting out of the parking lot is difficult at times.

I use the account fairly frequently because I can online deposit money orders. However I do small quantities.
