Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

You can open the Free Plus Checking account and still qualify for this bonus, this account has no monthly fee. CheckIt Savings also has no monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find any early account termination fee in the fee schedule.

Our Verdict

Previously they offered a bonus of up to $500, the requirements for the full $500 bonus were much more difficult to meet but still do-able for a lot of people. There was also a comparable offer for $300 that required $5,000 in direct deposits. That was last offered in 2018, so I’m not confident a similar big bonus will come back. Because of that I will add this to our list of the best checking account bonuses.

Last month they had been offering a 2.50% “Remarkable Savings Account” on $5,000-249,999 guaranteed through 12/31/19 when this $200 promo was originally set to expire on 6/30 (https://www.doctorofcredit.com/best-bank-account-bonuses/#comment-776204). It seems like they’ve since lowered the rate to 2.15% as of 7/1, plus there’s no longer a guarantee on the rate, instead stating: “Limited time offer, subject to change without notice.”

Hmm, looks like I am not eligible for the CheckIt Savings account. I couldn’t figure out how to add a savings account when I applied for the checking account during my 1st application earlier today so I decided to do a 2nd appliction for the savings account however. Not sure if that may have caused some issue. Strange.

I qualify for other savings accounts strangely…
