Our secure checking accounts provide a wide variety of deals, discounts, and plans to take advantage of including: cell phone protection, identity theft protection, discounts on medical expenses such as dental and vision, access to coupons and deals through E-Club at local restaurants & stores near you, plus much more. We charge $5 a month for a checking account, but you’ll spend much more than five dollars to purchase these extra benefits on their own.
(For example, most people might pay roughly $10-20 a month for cell phone protection through their cell network provider, but with our secure checking account, you’re protected for up to $300 in damages or theft. Many people also purchase their own ID protection from an outside source for another monthly subscription fee, but with our secure checking accounts, we’ve got you covered.)
