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.

Woodforest National Bank

You must apply in person and they are friendly to those reported to ChexSystems.

Hancock County Savings Bank

For a new deposit account within their lending area, they utilize the WatchDOG CIP system.

Community Trust Bank

They do not use ChexSystems but they do run EWS.

United Bank

They do not use ChexSystems and they do not run a credit report at all.
