We've worked hard to provide a great financial home for small, local businesses and our competitive advantage is simple: We act as a financial partner to your business. Our local experts will help your business succeed with timely, personalized advice, and we pride ourselves on providing the right products at the right time to help our business members reach the next level.
Checking Products: Making Every Dollar Count
We know that for a small business, every dollar counts. That's why we offer both Basic and Interest Checking accounts that are designed to help your business grow, with more value, fewer fees and more flexibility.
That means we reward you just for partnering with us by trying to maximize the number of free transactions you get per month before a nominal fee is applied.
- When you make deposits at a BECU ATM or through the High-Speed Online Deposit (HSOD) scanner, we only count the first deposited check. All other checks are not counted towards the transaction threshold. Please note that each batch, when using the HSOD scanner, can accept up to 30 checks at a time.
- It's your money. Access should be easy, convenient and free. We don't charge for electronic debits and credits, including those made through debit cards, ACH, bill pay, wire transfers, transfers and ATM withdrawals. We also provide easy and convenient deposit-only ATM cards for your employees to make deposits on behalf of your business. These secure cards never show account balances or allow account access.
