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.
Previous best bonus from Dedham savings was $100, so this is an extra $150 with very similar requirements. I do think this bonus is worth doing if you live near a branch and because of that I will be adding this to our best bank account bonuses.
