Thanks olegos for posting this link on MSN Online banking board.

Here are some fees that the new checking account has:

Overdraft Line of Credit. You pay interest if your balance drops below zero and you use your Overdraft Line of Credit. Unlike traditional banks, Electric Orange does not charge a fee to use your overdraft, and there's no fee to sign up. If you use it, you will only pay interest on the amount you borrow.

Overnight Delivery of a Check. If you use our Send Paper Checks service to send payments via overnight courier, in those instances when you need to send money for next day delivery, the cost is $15. (1st class mail Send Paper Checks delivery is free.)

Overnight Delivery of a Replacement Card. If you request to have a replacement Electric Orange Card sent to you via overnight courier, there is a $25 fee. There is no charge for standard delivery of a replacement Card.

Stop Payment. If we succeed in processing your request to place a stop payment on a check that was sent using the Send Paper Checks feature or the Free Bill Pay feature, there is a $25 Stop Payment charge. (For more info on this, please see the Stop Payments section.)

Foreign Currency Conversion. We may charge you a fee of up to 2.00% of each cash advance or purchase that you make in a foreign currency after it is converted to U.S. Dollars. This fee is in addition to the fee that MasterCard® may charge as part of converting the purchase to U.S. Dollars.
