How do I choose a checking account?


Because it's the account you'll conduct most of your day-to-day transactions through, finding the right checking account is essential. When you're shopping for a checking account, here are some features you may want to look for:

  • Low fees
  • A strong customer service reputation
  • Up-to-date online and mobile banking options
  • A competitive interest rate (if you prefer an account that offers interest)

One size doesn't fit all when it comes to checking accounts. You may want free checking for a low balance and cutting-edge mobile banking options, while your neighbor may prioritize having better interest rates. This is why shopping around is critical.
