Earn more interest, get free checks
What comes with our Advantage Plus account? A free box of 100 regal-style checks per year, an instant-issue Visa® debit card and no annoying minimum balance requirement. We’ll also waive the fee on our Visa TravelMoney prepaid cards, a $6.95 savings for you. The monthly service charge is just $4 per month, and you’ll earn interest – in fact, a higher return than what our Value checking account pays.
If you need an ATM, we’ve got you covered. We are a part of the CO-OP Network that gives you free access to more than 250 local and nearly 30,000 machines so you can get cash whenever you want.
Why choose Arsenal?
WalletHub’s most recent Banking Landscape report found that credit unions offer the best interest rates on checking accounts. Credit unions provide over seven times more value than regional banks and 15 times more value than national banks. Fee-wise, credit union checking accounts are also around 39 percent cheaper than those offered by online-only counterparts.
This checking account lets you earn rewards when you use your debit card to make signature-based transactions, something you won't see at most financial institutions.
Unlimited check writing
Instead of stressing about how many checks you can write each month, you'll enjoy complete freedom.
