Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee.
Seems like it’s a relatively good bonus if it turns out to be a soft pull, shame about the small area. If anybody has any personal experience then please share it in the comments.
