Community Business Checking ($0 Monthly Fee – $200 Bonus)
This account has no monthly fee to wory about.
Fast Track Business Checking ($20 Monthly Fee – $400 Bonus)
This account comes with a monthly fee of $20, this is waived if you have an average collected balance of $5,000 for the monthly statement period or $30,000 in Total Relationship balances.
Accelerated Business Checking ($30 Monthly Fee – $750 Bonus)
This account comes with a monthly fee of $30, this is waived with $25,000 in checking balances OR $100,000 in combined business lending, checking, savings, CD and money market balances.
Early Account Termination Fee
Thes accounts needs to be kept open for a minimum of six months, otherwise you will forfeit the bonus.
Sometimes you can get a bonus of $500 for opening a fast track business checking account, the nice thing about that offer is that it’s a lot easier to keep fee free. This $750 bonus is as high as the accelerated bonus goes. Keep in mind you’d need to keep $25,000 deposited for six months to keep the bonus and avoid any fees. There are no fees for the first three months so you’d really just want to deposit $20,000 then withdraw it and then add $25,000 again later to keep it fee free (or just pay $90 in fees). If you put that into an account earning 2% APY you’d earn $125 I will add this to the list of the best business checking bonuses available because this is as high as this bonus goes. There is also a $200 personal checking bonus that is worth doing (not currently available sadly. Hopefully somebody finds a working link). People have successfully gotten both the business & personal checking account bonuses before.
