Wells Fargo’s Everyday Checking has a $10 monthly fee. You can avoid the fee by making 10 debit payments or $500 in direct deposits or by keeping a minimum daily balance of $1,500 each month. College students can also avoid the fee. There’s no yield, so you won’t see your money grow with compound interest. But Wells Fargo does offer a promotional sign-up bonus. See our bonuses page to find out how to qualify.
With 13,000 ATMs, Wells Fargo’s network is fairly large; it only slightly trails Chase’s and Bank of America’s 16,000-ATM networks.
