The Platinum Checking Package is an interest-bearing checking account that gives you everything from free checks and money orders to discounts that could save you hundreds on your next home mortgage or refinance.1
And if you already have a mortgage or personal loan with U.S. Bank or higher balances in your U.S. Bank personal deposit accounts, you may be able to waive the monthly maintenance fee.
