CU credit cards are good for starting but for chase checking and freedom combo its one of the best..


I was refering to Checking.  CU Checking.

 

 

Does not Chase have a $1,500 daily avg requirement to avoid fees?  CU have less fees...actually my CU has no fees and no daily avg requirements.  As far as Checking goes, i think CUs are the best.

Thats why i prefer to do checking (and loans) with CU, but for awesome rewards CCs go with big banks like Chase or Citi, or etc.

Re: should I open a chase account?

What is it that you would like your checking account to do for you, that you don't think Chase does?  I'm just curious what kind of perks other types of checking accounts get.  I've had my checking account at Chase for something like 8 years.

yep but when CC bonus rewards are tied into a checking + card it's hard to refuse. $1,500 minimum balance is little price to pay considering there are people who do 100+ transactions a month. So that = $120 a year which can help pay your annual fee for your sapphire =D

I don't pay any fees for my account unless I overdraft, which is like once a year.
