Although many people think all checking accounts are the same–they provide you with the tools you need to pay bills and shop for everyday items–they really aren’t all created equal. Choosing a checking account with the right blend of features may actually help save you money.

A few things worth considering when choosing a checking account include:

  • Is having some type of overdraft protection service helpful?
  • Is earning interest important to you?
  • Do you want easy access to live customer service professionals?
  • Are online banking and/or bill pay services important?
  • How many checks do you write each month?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you can compare each bank’s options against your needs, which makes choosing a checking account that’s right for you much easier.
