Free Checking is more than “free” these days. With a checking account, you get a VISA Debit Card and you can pay your bills online for “free.” No postage and no hassle.
- No monthly fee
- No check charges
- No statement fees
- Electronic Statements are available
- Online banking is free
- Over-drafting your account is not free! (Be careful about that! To avoid bounced checks and overdraft fees set up courtesy pay or overdraft protection to a savings account)
Set up Overdraft Protection or a path to transfer money from a line of credit or savings account to avoid overdraft fees. (Avoid the hassle and embarrassment of a “bounced” check and the fees associated with them).
