Competition for your business remains hot at Las Vegas banks — and with more and more credit unions and national banks to choose from, it’s getting easier to find free checking and a number of added services that can make your banking experience profitable and easy.
There are three particular stand-outs that offer free checking and high interest rates to customers.
Clark County Credit Union offers a free checking account with no monthly fees as long as you sign up for its free direct deposit service. Electronic statements and electronic checks are also available for free.
Free Mobile Banking
OneNevada Credit Union also offers a free checking option for members (all Nevada residents are eligible). With just a $20 deposit, members can sign up for the credit union’s checking account, which offers tons of services: free unlimited checks, free debit card email alerts, free mobile check deposits, free online banking and a free banking app for your iOS or Android device.
The account offers no monthly fee as long as you complete 15 signature-based debit transactions or keep $2,000 on average in your checking account daily.
Reimbursed ATM Fees
City National Bank offers the Green Checking account exclusively to people who sign up online. This account is an eco-friendly solution that sends alerts and e-statements to your email address. If members keep $1,000 or more on average in their account daily, they will have no monthly fee and earn up to 0.10% APY on their balance.
The Green Checking account also offers free online banking, free bill pay and no fee for ATM transactions at any City National ATM nationwide. City will also reimburse your ATM charges from other ATMs for up to $20 per statement cycle.
