Avoiding Fees

All of the Liberty bank checking products are fee free apart from their interest checking product which has a $5 monthly fee if the monthly balance is less than $100. We weren’t able to find any mention of an early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

This is a pretty good bonus, especially the business account as it has no requirements. As long as you can change payroll easily then the personal bonus is pretty good as well as there is no worrying about keeping the account fee free. If anybody has any experience or datapoints with this bank, please share them in the comments below. We have added this to our best bank account bonuses.

Big thanks to reader, Winthrop R who let us know. Please consider sharing bank bonuses with this site so we can make it even better.

    Really easy application and online banking is immediately available, which is nice. Opened a checking and savings, $500 each on my Fidelity Visa. Fidelity won’t let you lower the CA limit sooo hoping this posts as a transaction. Will report back.

    WORCHESTER COUNTY? You’re butchering that hard.

    It’s “Worcester” county, and it’s pronounced “wuh – ster”.
