Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This account doesn’t have any monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.

Our Verdict

Previous best bonus from Dedham savings was $100, so this is an extra $150 with very similar requirements. I do think this bonus is worth doing if you live near a branch and because of that I will be adding this to our best bank account bonuses.
