3 ways to pay less in service fees

  1. Choose a monthly transaction plan. Pick one that suits your usual minimum balance and transaction volume.
  2. Combine transactions. Ask for cash back when you’re paying for your groceries at the store.
  3. Bundle bills in a single payment. Pay off your credit card in one monthly payment instead of several.
