Fifth Third Essential Checking® account has a $11 monthly service charge. This charge is reduced to $8 per month with a monthly direct deposit totaling $500 or more or it is completely waived with any of the following:
- Maintain a combined monthly average balance of $1,500 across your deposit and investment accounts
- Spend at least $500 per month on a Fifth Third credit card
- Have any existing Fifth Third personal mortgage, auto loan or line of credit with an outstanding balance
- Are a current or former U.S. military member with monthly direct deposits totaling $500 or more

The deposit requirement was $15K in their last offer. But this is still a pretty good bonus if you have $20,000 to keep in the account for three months. It’s a return of 10.00% APR, way better than you can get with any high yield accounts. There’s no fee for those three months either, since your balance waives it. Once you get the bonus you can close the account.
