Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Account comes with a $5.95 monthly fee, this is waived if you have 10 or more point of sale transactions

Early Account Termination Fee

Bonus is forfeit if the account is closed within six months

Our Verdict

Update: Hard pull to open so not worth it for most people.

Seems like a good bonus if it’s a soft pull to open. It’s also nice to have an account that earns 5% APY, although you will need to complete 10 point of sale transactions to keep it fee free so not technically no requirements. Although meeting debit card requirements is relatively easy (ideas on how to do that here).

I reached out to them back in August when they we’re running a similar promo and they told me hard pull.

I can confirm it’s a hard pull to join the credit union. I have a 3% APY (up to $10K) savings account with them. The savings account is a nice compliment to this checking account. If you factor in the $100 checking bonus and max out both the savings ($10K) and checking ($5K) then you’d earn a first year effective 4.3% APY on $15K.

There’s also an additional $25 bonus if you are referred for this checking account and complete 1 direct deposit. If you’d like a referral send me an email at: sumacsuave@aol.com.

if I open both checking and saving, would there be 2 hard pulls?

I was surprised and disappointed to learn that SharePoint Credit Union performs a hard pull on your Experian file for each new account you open with them regardless if you are already a member of the credit union. I’ve never encountered another bank which performs a hard pull on existing members just to open a checking account. Also they pull Chex systems but are not inquiry sensitive.

If you have a good credit score you should have no problem getting approved, im located in mn and have a credit score of 730-760.
