You're paying $12.00 a month to maintain your accounts?! Oh no! I have two checking accounts and one savings account, and neither has monthly fees. I have checking accounts with SunTrust and Bank of America. My savings account is with ING, an ING orange direct account to be precise. The Rush Card is not the answer to your problems, rather you need to search for banks that are more friendly to your budget. Preferably banking institutions that offer free checking accounts or nearly free checking accounts.

My SunTrust and BOA accounts are completely identical in the services and perks they provide. There are no minimum balance requirements, no charges for withdrawals when you use their designated bank ATM machines, no monthly maintenance fee. The only thing I would ever have to pay for is checks, but since I use Billpay, which is a free service that SunTrust and BOA both provide, my checks are lasting about 3 and half years.

I don't know if there's a SunTrust or Bank of America in your area. You can have more than one checking account, but you need to have at least one account with a bank where you can easily access one of their branches. If you live nearby one of these banks, I would check them out and see if they meet your banking needs.

The specific SunTrust bank account I have is "Free Checking." If you go to SunTrust's website, they have 6 types of checking accounts which list the services each one provides, balance requirements, and fees if they are any associated with the account. Again, the SunTrust bank account I have doesn't require you to maintain a certain balance, and you wont' be charged a monthly maintenance fee.

The Bank of America account I have is called MyAccess Checking. Normally you would have to either set up direct deposit in order for it to be free. If you didn't want to commit to at least one direct deposit a month, your account would incur a $5.00 monthly maintenance fee. I was able to get around the direct deposit requirement and the $5.00 maintenance fee because I had a promotion code. The promotion code not only allowed me to bypass that $5.00 maintenance fee since I didn't want to set up direct deposit with this account, I also received $75.00 from Bank of America for opening my account online. I received this promotion code because I have a BOA Visa. But as I understand, if you were to google for Bank of America MyAccess codes, you should come up with several websites that have valid codes you can use when you apply for the bank account online.

After so many years of paying no fees for my banking transactions, except for checks, I'm way too spoiled to bank with an institution that charges ridiculous high fees. Go to fatwallet.com and check out the finance forum for high yield interest savings accounts. There are quite a few that pay decent interest and doesn't charge the consumer monthly maintenance fees. Good luck.

i can tell you now the rush care has fees also i know if its anything like walmart debt card. you have to pay everytime you put money on it.

Keep your checking account at least if you don't save or don't really use your savings close it! Even if you get a rush card they have all kins of fees associated with it ---- I'm not sure about the rush card but when I had a prepaid card I paid for the card $9.95, activation fee 4.95, reloading fee (which is normally charged everytime you wanna put money on it) 5.95 --- just a lot of fees.....keep the account although $12 is a little steep I think it's better in the end ---- if you simply don't want them just close them but to replace the account with a card isn't worth it!
