Jordan Credit Union has no fees to open a checking account, no monthly fees and no minimum balance requirements. In fact, JCU is willing to pay you for using their checking accounts. If you switched a checking account from the largest bank in the nation to a Cash Back Checking Account at JCU, not only would you save $132.40 a year in fees, you could earn an additional $90. That means, in your first year, you would see a net gain of $222.40. Add the $20 each month you would receive in ATM refunds, and it's easy to see which checking account is the better choice.

Stop dealing with all of the fees. Come in to switch to a Free Checking Account today!
