Compliment your new checking account with one of our great savings options.

The customer is responsible for the purchase of checks. In the case of an overdraft, a $35 per item or $175 daily max overdraft fee will apply.

All checking products and services are subject to applicable customer agreements, terms and conditions. Offers apply to personal checking accounts only; business and corporate accounts do not qualify. Bank rules and regulations apply. Minimum opening deposit is only $50. 

1 Cash bonus credited to new checking account between 61st day and 70th day account is open. To qualify for cash bonus, 20 debit card purchases posted to your account (online or in person) and enrollment in online statements OR receipt of at least one ACH direct deposit transaction (minimum value of $250) into the new account must be completed within 60 days of account opening. ATM withdrawals do not qualify as a debit card purchase. Transfers from one account to another, or deposits made at a banking location or ATM, do not qualify as a direct deposit. Account must be open and in good standing on the 60th day after account opening to be eligible for the cash credit and cannot be combined with any other offer. If 60th day falls on a weekend or a holiday, the qualification deadline will be the next business day.
