Xtraordinary Checking Named One of NerdWallet’s 9 Best Checking Accounts of February 2021

We are excited to announce more acclaim for our Connexus checking accounts! NerdWallet has named Connexus Credit Union’s Xtraordinary Checking one of the Nine Best Checking Accounts of February 2021, based on a comparison of dozens of financial institutions.

Why We Made the Top 9 Checking Accounts List

Our Xtraordinary Checking Account ranked 5 stars out of 5 on the NerdWallet ranking scale, which takes into account “rates and fees, ATM and branch access, account features and limits, user-facing technology, customer service and innovation. The stars represent ratings from poor (one star) to excellent (five stars).”

The NerdWallet ranking calls out several highlights of the Connexus Xtraordinary Checking account, including our “excellent rate” of 1.75% APY1 on balances up to $25,000, no monthly fees, and access to over 54,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide.

In addition to the Xtraordinary Checking, NerdWallet also mentions our Innovative Checking Account. The review notes that while it wasn’t factored into the ranking, it’s a “good option.” Innovative Checking doesn’t charge a monthly service fee, and it still offers access to 54,000+ surcharge-free ATMs.

NerdWallet banking editor Tony Armstrong writes, “Bottom line: Connexus Credit Union checking accounts are stellar, with the potential to earn high rates.” See the full NerdWallet review of Connexus, and then check out their Xtraordinary Checking review.
