Free Checking Becoming More Rare In The US
Free checking is growing increasingly rare at U.S.. banks. In Bankrate's survey, only 39 percent of banks offered a checking account with no minimum balance requirement and no monthly fee, the standard definition of a "free" checking account. That's down from 45 percent in 2011 and down substantially from its peak of 76 percent in 2009.
