Our verdict

The BCU Access account is an everyday banking product with no account keeping fees.

This account has no monthly account fees to worry about, and there are no ongoing deposit conditions to meet either. This could be suited to you if you like to make transactions in a branch, as you can make unlimited withdrawals or deposits in a BCU branch for free. Some other transaction accounts charge a fee for in branch transactions. If you don’t live near a BCU branch you can also make cash deposits at the post office using Bank@Post, but there will be a transaction fee.

Something to be aware of with this account is the international transaction fee of 3%. There are lots of transaction accounts today that don’t charge this fee at all, so keep this in mind if you plan to use the account to make purchases overseas or online from international retailers.

Pros

  • No minimum deposit required.
  • $0 withdrawal fees at any BCU ATM.
  • No account keeping fee

Cons

  • International transaction fee applies on overseas purchases
