Advantages Over Regular Banks
You can save time and money by banking wherever you are. You can make deposits, pay bills, and monitor your account more closely, without ever driving to a branch office, donning a mask for COVID-19, or standing in line.
The bank saves money, too, by not maintaining brick-and-mortar branch offices. It can pass savings on to you in the form of fewer fees and higher interest on your savings.
If you still need to get cash from an ATM, don’t worry. When you use an ATM from another bank, the fees are deducted from your account. However, at the end of every statement period, CIT Bank reimburses your account for up to $30 for ATM fees.
