Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Payback checking acocunt has no monthly fee to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

According to this fee schedule you will be charged $25 if closed within 180 days of account opening.

Our Verdict

We’ve previously posted about a $100 referral bonus. This deal is better if you’re just signing up for yourself, if you have somebody that can refer you and will give you some/all of the $100 they get then that bonus might be a better option.

10 miles. They sure take that “community” thing seriously. Dallas is a big place.
