It features an ATM/debit card, a free bank zip bag, no per item fee on returned deposited checks, up to 50 free debits per statement cycle (10 cents per item above 50) and, as long as you keep a balance of at least $500, it’s all free! ($10 service fee if balance falls below $500 any day of the statement cycle. $75 minimum opening deposit.) Relax, sole proprietors: controlling your financial costs just got easier. (Available to sole proprietors only.)
F&M Business Checking
Business checking for everyone else! With a minimum opening deposit of just $75, you'll get an ATM/debit card, a bank zip bag for only $3, and the opportunity to order deposit slips at a 25% discount. This account features a 10-cent credit back for every $100 on deposit at the time of your lowest monthly balance (applied against service fees). Service fees include a $4 per month, 10 cents per check and $1 item fee per returned deposited check.
F&M Money Market Account
This account offers you a place to grow your money with interest. Best of all, there’s no service fee as long your balance stays at or above $2,500 (service fee of $10 if balance falls below $2,500). You’re also allowed six withdrawals per month. Both personal & business accounts are available.
Wealth Builder Money Market Account
Grow your money in a safe place. Get a great rate, comparable to CD’s, and still have access to your money. This account features six pre-authorized transfers per month (three by check, draft or similar order) and a two-tiered interest rate. Keeping a balance of $5,000 or more earns you the higher interest rate. You also get a free ATM/debit card. Plus, it’s all free as long as you keep a minimum balance of $2,500. So stop worrying about growing your money because, you're safe and saving with this account! (Available for personal and business accounts.)
Ben Franklin said “a penny saved is a penny earned”. Guess what, he’s right! And with this account it’s easy because there’s no minimum balance, you get 3 free withdrawals per quarter ($2 service fee if more than 3 withdrawals per quarter), a free ATM card & interest is compounded & earned quarterly. Now, we’ll take care of all that, all you have to do is stash the cash! (available for personal & business accounts)
