Early Account Termination Fee
Money market needs to be kept open for six months to avoid any fees as far as I can see there is no minimum requirement for the checking account.
Freedom Checking $8/$10 ($250 Bonus)
The monthly fee on this account is waived if you do any of the following:
- Maintain a minimum daily balance of $1,000 or more
- Or, combined monthly direct deposits of $500 or more
- Or, you are a student with e-statements*
- Or, you are a small business owner* and have an IBERIABANK small business checking account
The monthly fee is $8 with eStatements or $10 with paper statements.
High Interest Checking $20 Monthly Fee ($400 Bonus)
The $20 monthly fee on this account is waived if you do any of the following:
- Maintain an average monthly balance of $5,000 or more
- Or, combined monthly average collected balance of $25,000 in any personal deposit account;
- Or, an outstanding principal balance of $25,000 in any personal loan accounts;
- Or, you are a small business owner and have an IBERIABANK small business checking account*
There is no longer any targeted language, so that’s great. This is the biggest offer we’ve seen from Iberia Bank, sometimes we see the checking bonuses being available but we’ve never see the combo bonus of up to $600 before. I definitely think this bonus is worth doing if you’re eligible, so I’ll be adding this to the best bank bonuses.
