This checking account rewards companies that regularly keep at least $3,500 average balance in their account. You’ll earn a competitive interest rate on your balance, and we’ll waive the regular monthly fee (otherwise $25 if your balance dips below $3,500).*

Account features include:

  • Up to 350 free monthly transactions**: This limit includes both paper debit and credit transactions.
  • Detailed monthly statement: Easily review your business checking transactions and balances and get a summary of business services you used. Paperless statements (eStatements) are available.
