How to avoid the monthly service fee of $10

Open an Everyday Checking account

Our Everyday Checking account comes with innovative features:

  • Wells Fargo Mobile® app. With our mobile banking app, you can check account activity, deposit checks, pay bills, transfer funds, and more from your mobile device.
  • Overdraft RewindSM. Sign up for Direct Deposit to take advantage of Overdraft Rewind. When an ACH direct deposit is received by 9:00 am, the bank will automatically reevaluate transactions from the previous day and, if your Direct Deposit covers them, may reverse overdraft or returned item (Non-Sufficient Funds/NSF) decisions and waive associated fees.
