Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

The Freedom checking account has no monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

Account needs to be open for at least 75 days, not sure if there is a fee outside that.

Our Verdict

They have previously had bonuses of $300 (business checking) & $250. Normally I’d just recommend waiting for those bigger bonuses to come back, but they were back in 2016 so I wouldn’t hold your breathe. In addition this also includes a $150 donation to charity so why not use this hobby to do some good in the world as well? Given that this is a soft pull, no monthly fees and it doesn’t require a direct deposit we will be adding it to the best bank bonuses.
