Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

SimplyChecking has no monthly fees to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

Account must be kept open for 180 days otherwise an early account termination fee will be charged and bonus must be repaid.

Our Verdict

Previous deal was for $300 with no bonus requirements. Last time it was offered you did need to bring in a mailer, but I don’t see anything about a mailer being required in the terms so it’s possible it’s publicly available this time. If it is publicly available, this is definitely going on our list of the best checking account bonuses.
