We get it.

You don’t want to get the shakedown for opening something as simple as a checking account. Here, we don’t like hidden fees. And we’re not going to let them lurk in the shadows, either. Instead, how about a side of no ATM fees? Like ever.

Now, let’s help you figure out what checking account fits you and the types of things you do. With us, what you see is what you get.

Feel the freedom.

When you have a checking account with us, you get a debit card that makes every ATM an Equity Bank ATM. Let’s paint the picture. You’ve got to grab some cash, but you’re far away from any of your bank’s ATMs, so you use the one closest to you. Before you get your cash, the machine will force you to agree to a fee. Some of these ATM fees now average more than $5. Yikes.

Go ahead and accept the fee. When you bank with us, your debit card will block ATM fees from ever showing up in your account. Take that, ATM bullies.
