WHY IT’S A WINNER

Why it’s a winner: You can avoid out-of-network ATM fees and earn a nice yield on checking. Plus you get a 0.5-percentage-point discount on home-equity lines of credit and a 0.25-point discount on personal loans if you set up automatic payments from your account.

Caveat

As with many banks, you’ll need a minimum balance to waive the checking account’s maintenance fee.
