Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

The basic checking account has no monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

There is no early account termination fee on the checking account. But if you close the prime share savings (usually required to become a member) then there is a $5 fee according if you do so within six month to the fee schedule.

Our Verdict

Unfortunately not really worth considering due to the hard pull they do. Because of that we won’t be adding it to the best checking account bonuses.

This isn’t a particularly amazing deal, but Newegg is offering a $50 statement credit off your first purchase over $50 if you sign up for their store card. I don’t think they’ve offered any bonuses in the past. I took it because I recently went on an app spree and store cards are easy approvals so I figure I’d just lump it in.


It is a hard pull…just discovered that the hard way.


No pun intended 😉


Also want to add you can fund up to $500 via credit card!


This is hardpull…


they are very Chex sensitive too, i got a call that they couldnt open due to recent chex inquiries


How many open accounts?


FYI, I asked them via facebook chat what the requirements are they said it neded the premium checking which had a monthly fee.

The offer says: Matching deposit up to $300 for new Premium Checking Accounts.
This post suggest that you can get the bonus from the basic checking, not sure if that changed.
Looks like the premium checking has a monthly fee of $3.95, not sure if it can be waived, their website is kind of bad.
