Bank Fees and Charges

Banks Fees

If you are considering a new online bank account, it is important to research the bank account’s requirements and the bank fees and charges you may be asked to pay once you open a new account.

Many banks charge fees for requirements and behaviors many customers did not even realize they were being charged for. In fact, the top 5 largest banks in the United States made over $34 Billion in overdraft fees alone in 2017.  Financial technology companies such as Chime are trying to change that with access to bank accounts with no hidden fees and offer a great banking alternative to many of the fee-riddled big bank accounts.

Below is a list of resources that describe each type of bank fee and how many banks compare on their fees.
