Classic checking has no monthly fees to worry about
Early Account Termination Fee
There is no early account termination fee
The credit cards don’t look very exciting, so I’d stick to the checking bonus. An old datapoint says opening the checking account is a soft pull but apparently customer service reps are saying it’s now a soft pull. It’s difficult to determine if this is a good or bad deal until we know for sure if it’s hard or soft. As always please share your data points in the comments below.
