Worry free checking account has no monthly fee to worry about. I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure on any early account termination fees.
Previously they offered the same bonus but required debit card transactions instead of direct deposits. Sadly we still don’t know if it’s a hard pull and if the targeted language is enforced or not. If anybody knows then please share your experiences in the comments below. For now it won’t be added to our best checking bonuses, at least until we know more.
Big thanks to reader, DT who let us know. Learn how to find bonuses and contribute to the site here.
