Who Should Use Simply Free Checking?
Simply Free Checking is ideal for people who want no minimum balance requirements, no monthly service fees and free online bill payment. This convenient account provides outstanding benefits for customers with basic banking needs. You can use mobile and online banking with this account too. If you’re a retiree, someone opening their first checking account or a recent graduate from college in PA, our free checking account is the right choice.
Who Should Use Advantage Checking?
Advantage Checking is the best account for customers whose banking needs involve more in-depth offerings. Benefits include free domestic wire transfers and a free Safe Deposit Box. With a minimum balance of $15,000, this account provides exceptional cash back offers. Customers earn every time they use their debit card for a credit-based transaction. They also accrue interest on their balance.
All Advantage Checking account holders can access their accounts online or via our mobile app at any time. If you travel abroad frequently, make enough money to maintain a healthy balance and want to be able to access your money while still earning interest on it, this checking account will meet all your requirements.
When you select either account, you’ll get the standout customer service our community bank is known for providing. We offer checking account support that other banks lack.
