FNB Checking Accounts
FNB describes the Freestyle, Mystyle, Lifestyle, and Premierstyle checking accounts as “from no-frills to bells-and-whistles.” Of the four accounts, the Freestyle is probably the easiest account to maintain, since it has no monthly service fee (as long as eStatements are received) and no minimum balance requirement. FNB’s Compare Checking Accounts page has a side-by-side comparison chart to better describe the difference between the various checking accounts.
Headquartered in Greenville, Pennsylvania, First National Bank’s market area is comprised of Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and West Virginia, including three major metropolitan areas (Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Cleveland).
With the acquisition of North Carolina-based Yadkin Bank last year, FNB has established a presence from the Outer Banks to the Cherokee National Forest.
Opening a 61-month CD Special must be done at any of 411 branches located in Maryland (31), North Carolina (95), Ohio (32), Pennsylvania (248), South Carolina (3), and West Virginia (2).
