Avoiding Fees

I wasn’t able to find the fee schedule.

Basic Checking $3 Monthly Fee

Waived with either of the following:

  • Direct deposit
  • Loan

Prestige Checking $20 Monthly Fee

Waived with combined share balances of $5,000+

Our Verdict

Bit annoying that a direct deposit or $5,000 is required to keep the account fee free, probably not worth it to be honest. If anybody does sign up though then please share your experiences in the comments below.
