At Five Star, your checking is always FREE. Plus, every account comes with a free debit card that has chip technology as well as tap to pay. These are the most secure cards available.
We have three checking account options. If you are over 50, you can get a few perks and interest on your account. If you carry a high balance, Your Five Star Checking is the best option. With a balance of $1,500 or more, you earn .25% APY* on your account. If the balance falls below $1,500, you will incur a $10 fee. As an added bonus, with an active checking, 10 debit/credit transactions per month, you will receive a .25% APY bump on your savings and share certificates
Tell a friend about Five Star and you can get a $10 deposit. Pick up a Tell A Friend coupon in your local branch. Your $10 is deposited once they open a checking account.
Opening a checking account is easy – it’s just $25. There is no minimum balance after that. You can open your new Five Star checking account by stopping by one of the 17 local branches or by calling 888-619-1711 option 7.
