If you are in search of a second chance checking account, BBVA Compass is our top recommended choice. You can open this account with a minimum deposit of just $25, and rest easy knowing there is no monthly service charge. There are no ATM withdrawal fees, and you get your own personalized Visa debit card.

This account comes with a full suite of online banking features, making it easy to monitor accounts, search through transactions, pay your bills, transfer money and more.

Technically, both a regular version of this account and a second chance version are offered. Depending on your credit history, you may be approved for the regular account.

If you are denied a regular account, you will be offered the second chance banking account. This account includes all the same features as the regular account for a low monthly fee of $13.95. After you have developed a relationship with the bank, you may be re-evaluated later for the regular account. From that point on, you can bank fee-free. Anyone can open an account!
