Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find any fee schedule, so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.
Previous best deal was $100. This offer is significantly better. I do think this one is worth doing if you live in an eligible area, looks like you can also join by donating $5 to an organization but I think it’s still restricted to just KS & OK. I’ll be adding this to our list of the best checking bonuses.
