The Embark Checking account has no monthly fees as long as you opt for paperless statements. If you opt for paper statements you’ll be charged a $3 monthly fee.
Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.
We are seeing more of these Slickdeal backed bonuses recently, I haven’t heard of any real issues getting the bonuses but obviously the more middle men you add the more likely a problem is to arise. Definitely worth doing if you live in the targeted area, no bonus requirements and a nice amount of credit card funding as well. I’ve added this to our list of the best checking bonuses.
