Not a Basic Checking Account

Checking accounts should come with tools to make life easier. With AmFirst Thrive™ Checking, you’ll get a no cost Visa debit card that earns rewards, no cost checks (possible shipping charge) with unlimited check writing, a spread of online and mobile services*, overdraft protection*, notary service, eStatements with check images, and more. It’s not your basic checking account.


Courtesy Pay Disclosures:

Courtesy pay results in a fee for paying everyday debit card transactions of $30 per presentment. The time period by which the member must repay or cover any overdraft is within 5 business days. We will not overdraw an account more than $500 using courtesy pay. We may overdraft at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize and pay any type of transaction.
