Simply Right Checking or Basic Checking are the best option. Basic Checking has a $3 monthly fee that can’t be waived. Simply Right Checking has a $10 monthly fee that can be easily waived when you make any financial transaction that posts during a calendar month. Includes deposits, withdrawals, transfers or payments. Excludes fees, rebates or adjustments posted by Santander.
Santander has has a few increased bonuses lately, but they’ve been targeted. This one is publicly available and requirements are pretty easy to meet. All you need to do is complete $500 or more in direct deposits within 90 days. I’d suggest opening a Simply Right Checking account and set up an automatic monthly transaction to keep it fee free. There’s no minimum balance requirement.
