If you are in search of a ChexSystems-friendly checking account, BBVA Compass Free Checking 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.

Unlike other banks, BBVA does not use ChexSystems or TeleCheck to verify new customers. Anyone can open an account!

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.

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.

Dakota Plains Federal Credit Union

They run OFAC and TeleCheck to verify new accounts.

Farmers and Merchants State Bank

All that is needed is an ID and SS card. If you request a debit card they will run a credit report

TCF Bank

Many people have been able to get accounts with TCF. They use ChexSystems but are extremely lenient, definitely worth a chance.

First Dakota National Bank

They do not use ChexSystems at all. Generally they pull Equifax.
