With Gold Checking, you pay no monthly maintenance fees as long as you also have an open U.S. Bank personal loan, line or credit card.1  

Don't have a U.S. Bank credit card?

You can apply for one when you open your Gold Checking Package account. Select from more than 30 cards, including our popular U.S. Bank Cash+™ Visa Signature® Card or U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Travel Rewards Visa Signature® Card, which let you choose the travel rewards you really want.

Other financing needs?

U.S. Bank offers competitive rates on auto loans, home equity loans and lines, and personal loans and lines – and as long as you have one of these accounts open, your Gold Checking monthly maintenance fees will be waived.
