Some details:
- Hard Credit pull through Equifax
- no free checks, but 6 starter checks (luv spongebob)
- 7 business day hold on initial deposit made by personal check
- Cycles on the third Wednesday of the month.

I don't like banks pulling credit reports for deposit accounts. Who's math formula suggest those with multiple CD's are a worse risk? "Too many inquiries" wrecked a credit card bonus I was trying for (chase sapphire).
