on some upcoming checking account changes at Citizens Bank:
Starting April 23rd, your Green Checking Account’s monthly fee will increase from $4.99 to $9.99. Got a Personal Checking with Interest Account instead? You aren’t off the hook either: your monthly fee will increase from $9.99 to $11.99.
The Nerdwallet article also provided several checking account recommendations for those in the northeast. Don't forget that most reward checking accounts
are also free checking accounts.
