Freedom rewards checking has no monthly fee to worry about. There is an early account termination fee of $50 if the account is closed within six months.
Seems like any ACH credit will trigger the direct deposit requirement and 5 debit card transactions is also trivial to complete. If this is a soft pull then it’s definitely worth doing and something we will add to our list of the best checking promotions. If anybody goes for this one, share your experiences below.
