Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

They offer a free checking account with no monthly fees to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is an early account termination fee. Might as well keep the account open as there is no monthly fees to worry about (usually six months is long enough to avoid any potential early account termination fee).

Our Verdict

Shame it’s targeted, otherwise we would have added this to our list of the best checking account bonuses. As far as I know the targeted language is enforced unfortunately.
