Verbatim from Citibank statement, regarding monthly fee for Basic Checking:

"1) Clients pay no monthly service fee if they make one Direct Deposit and one Online Bill Payment during each monthly statement period; 2) Clients can also avoid a monthly service fee by maintaining $1,500 in combined average monthly balances in their Basic Checking and linked Basic Savings accounts"

The statement does not define what constitutes a "Direct Deposit" or an "Online Bill Payment".
