The following banks and credit unions offer excellent features and benefits. While we recommend them, they are not our top picks for the simple reason that they are not guaranteed banks. They have however helped a lot of people, and may be able to help you too.

Mountain West Bank

If you come into a branch they do not run ChexSystems, however if you were to apply for a checking account through our website they do.

Latah Credit Union

At this point, they do not use one of the services to verify accounts. They do run everyone through OFAC.

HomeStreet Bank

They do sometimes open accounts for those reported to ChexSystems depending on the severity of the report.
