The basic checking account has no monthly fees to worry about.
Early Account Termination Fee
There is no early account termination fee on the checking account. But if you close the prime share savings (usually required to become a member) then there is a $5 fee according if you do so within six month to the fee schedule.
They have offered a bonus of up to $300 in the past. Given this is a hard pull and a much bigger bonus has been offered in the past we won’t be adding this to our list of the best checking account bonuses.
