Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Business checking is the easiest to keep fee free, it has a $5 monthly fee that is waived with a $1,500 average daily balance.

Early Account Termination Fee

If the account is closed within 90 days of account opening they will deduct the bonus and a $25 early account termination fee is charged.

Our Verdict

Bank & Trust also has a personal bonus for $200-$350. The business version is only available at the New Mexico version, where as the personal is valid in more states. Deal itself is fairly good especially when it looks like you only need the $10,000 balance on the 90th day, so most of the time you could just have $1,500 in the account to keep it fee free. Because of how easy the bonus requirements are we will add this to our list of the best checking bonuses.

Looking for DP about funding with credit card. If you’ve done this, was it posted as “purchase” or as cash advance?


Funding Citywide account with Chase Ink Business Cash coded as purchase.


In NM but 45 miles from nearest branch; could not open online because zip code is “out of range”. Tried changing zip, did not work.

I have personal checking & savings accounts with this bank, but I opened them in branch.


Not available in Dallas


No go for Houston as well. Same like their personal account.


I am confused for the requirement. Does ” at least $10,000 at 60 calendar days after account opening” mean $10000 deposit for 60 days?


Phone call w/ CSR confirmed $10,000 at 60 calendar days after account opening, not for 60 days.




This is still on the best bonuses page, but I’m not seeing the offer live on any of the websites anymore. Is this still active?


above, it says Expiration date: June 28th, 2019

that’s reason why you don’t see the offer on the website anymore.
