About Us

CheckingOptions.com was created in order to make it easier for you to pick a checking account service.

Here at CheckingOptions.com we have taken the time to figure out what features are and are not included with each bank's checking account service. We have also spent time reading the fine print and have done our best to make clear to you exactly what you are getting with each checking account service. With our grid and reviews you can educate yourself about each service and pick the one that best suits your needs. Here at CheckingOptions.com we have brought together all the information you will need to make a well informed choice. At CheckingOptions.com the choice is up to you as we are determined to serve as an unbiased source of easy to understand information on checking account services.

Consumers may remove themselves from any mailing list by following the instructions contained at the end of every newsletter or website notification email.

CheckingOptions.com has teamed up with reputable third party vendors in order to provide certain services to its online users. When leaving our website to view one of our partner websites, we encourage users to review the privacy statements of those websites as we cannot guarantee the privacy of users while visiting affiliate sites.

How Does CheckingOptions.com Make Money?

CheckingOptions.com is a for-profit business, but rather than charging a subscription fee, we have referral agreements with many of the companies we review. In an effort to provide a complete comparison resource we review companies regardless of whether or not they offer a referral program. The terms of our compensation agreements do not impact our reviews for three primary reasons. 1) We typically only get paid if you actually sign up for the service. 2) Often, you must not cancel the service or return the product before the expiration of an initial period (typically 30 to 45 days). If we were to misrepresent a product or service, you would likely cancel or request a refund, and we'd all lose. 3) We want to earn your loyalty, so you'll continue to come to us for advice. If you think we've misled you, I doubt you'd return. I wouldn't.
