Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

There is no monthly fees to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule

Our Verdict

Relatively small bonus, probably not worth it for most people but it’s nice that they also donate $100 to charity. That being said considering it’s a soft pull and there’s a small amount of credit card funding we will be adding this to our list of the best checking bonuses.

I’d pursue this bonus if credit card funding was an option. I’ll report back if I go through with an application.


$100 CC funding max


$100 in credit card funding max. Pretty easy approval, took less than 5 minutes.


This bank has CC funding, but a limit of $100. Visa and MC only, no AmEx. CFU coded as a purchase. No hard pull when I opened the account and doesn’t seem to be Chex sensitive.


07/01 – Opened account
07/08 – x3 bill pays
07/11 – $250 employer DD
08/20 – $100 payout

Just under six weeks, per the terms. Fast and easy.


“Account Closing (if open less than 6 months) $25.00”


9 Sept 2019 – Opening deposit by Visa CC ($0 avail for cash adv), posted as purchase ($100)
9-11 Sept 2019 – Paid bills using bill pay service, 5 payments ($1 each) to three CCs
9-13 Sept 2019 – Set up trial deposits from USAA, Discover and PenFed
11 Sept 2019 – Deposited cash back bonus from TD Cash Back CC, counted as a DD ($206)
