Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This will vary based on what account you have

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

We’ve talked about the SECU Visa Signature card before, don’t think we’ve ever mentioned the checking account. Always nice to see promotions targeted towards existing users, but this isn’t really actionable unless you’re an existing user as there is no guarantee you’ll see this offer again. As it’s for existing users, we won’t be adding this to our list of the best bank account bonuses.
