It's great to have choices. You can choose coffee or tea. A book or a movie. In banking, you also have choices. With Choice Checking, you can choose to reduce, or even eliminate, your monthly service fee. You also receive convenient banking services such as free mobile banking, text alerts, free online banking, bill pay, POP money and much more. There's a low minimum balance to open the account, and your already low monthly service fee can disappear simply by conducting normal, everyday transactions – the kind you are probably already doing! It seems like a pretty clear choice to us!
