Methodology: Best Transaction Account
Here's how our expert analysts assessed the Best Transaction Account category to pick the 2020 winner.
This award was scored manually by a judging panel. With overseas travel banned due to COVID-19 and cash use becoming less common, this year's winner was chosen by the panel due to its $0 international transaction fee, $0 unconditional monthly fee and excellent cashback offer. This product offered the best value in the market for customers looking to upgrade their transaction account.
