Other limitations to this offer is that although AFCU has branches all over the country, it is not being offered in Mt. Vernon, Merrifield, or GMU.

About the Checking Accounts

No two checking accounts are the same, and AFCU offers four different types of it.

The Free A+ checking account lets you enjoy zero monthly fees. Plus, you won’t need to maintain a minimum balance to keep your account active. The Advantage checking lets you get dividends and more on your checking balance. Students can also get their fill with the eXtras Student checking account. Full-time students between the ages of 12-23 are qualified. And when they spend using their visa card, they get to earn points for rewards as well. Finally, the Investors checking account is most useful to those who are looking for a way to get high-interest rewards. Use these to make big purchases in your planned business ventures, or allow them to accumulate to have a solid foundation in investment.

The Free A+ and eXtras Student checking account do not require any account qualifications. On the other hand, Advantage checking accounts need a combined savings or loans of $20,000 or a direct deposit or more than $1,000 monthly. As for the Investor’s checking, an investment balance adding up to $10,000 is required.

About AFCU

AFCU started in 1956 when teachers and educators came together to do one simple act of kindness – helping a colleague make a car purchase. Since then, AFCU has grown into a credit union with a strong tradition for service to the people.
