These days, a checking account with a debit card and online access is a fundamental part of convenient banking. That's why Wailuku Federal Credit Union offers checking accounts with debit cards for ATM cash withdrawals and point-of-sale purchases, along with a free first batch of checks. You may use your debit card to do cash withdrawals at the ATM that is located at our branch or any American Savings Bank ATM without incurring a surcharge. A surcharge is a fee that the ATM owner charges a non-customer cardholder for using their machine.
In addition, following are the many great features that our checking account offers:
- $50 minimum opening deposit (no minimum balance thereafter).
- No monthly service maintenance fee.
- Pays dividends which are equivalent to interest you usually only earn on savings accounts.
- Manage your account online.
- Free Bill Payment which eliminates the need to write and mail check payments.
- Overdraft Protection to avoid costly fees.
- Card Valet which is a valuable tool that provides card management and fraud mitigation for debit cards.
- Remote Deposit Capture allows you to make a check deposit by taking a picture of the check with your mobile phone.
- Direct deposit your monthly paycheck, social security benefit or other recurring deposits that my be deposited electronically.
- Order checks online at OrderMychecks.com.
If you’re looking for a checking account with no minimum balance that pays dividends (similar to interest) and offers much more, we have the account for you. If you currently have your checking account elsewhere, you may find the Switch Kit to be helpful in transferring your account to us.
