TD Bank checking accounts give customers access to a large East Coast-based network of branches and ATMs. But you won’t find free checking with TD Bank’s three general options. There’s either a minimum daily balance requirement or monthly fee.

    How TD Bank compares with online banks

    Large institutions like TD Bank generally have a wide network of branches and ATMs. However, their checking accounts tend to have lower interest rates and higher monthly fees compared with online banks. The top online banks can’t match big banks in the number of branches, but they do usually offer access to large independent ATM networks.

    TD Bank offers straightforward checking options, but you can find cheaper checking accounts elsewhere. Given its extensive branch network and hours, however, TD Bank might be a convenient place for your money if you’re on the East Coast.
