huh, that one is new, until recently the Kasasa checking they offered is 3% at $10,000 max
tempting …


I talked to the Bank of Ruston and they said they are having issues with opening accounts online. If you email them your info they can send you out an application in the mail.


I’m in LA, opened my account last month, no hard pulls, not sure if they used Chex though. If they did, definitely not Chex sensitive since mine is LoL/24

They also have a priority saving which is link to the priority checking with 2% APY of balance up to 15,000$, as long as you finish the requirements on the checking, the saving will auto get the 2% rate.
