Last updated:  

A checking account with multiple fee reimbursements and three ways to avoid the $25 monthly fee

Previously called TD Premier Checking, this is TD Bank’s top-tiered account. It offers features like overdraft and ATM fee reimbursements, but there’s a $25 fee if you don’t meet the fee-waiver conditions.

What are the benefits of the TD Beyond Checking account?

This account has FDIC insurance to keep your money safe and perks that help you save:

  • No initial deposit. You don’t have to meet a minimum opening deposit requirement.
  • Fee reimbursements. Get reimbursed for two overdraft fees per year, non-TD ATM fees, rush bill payments and more.
  • Free overdraft transfers. If you have another TD account linked to this one, transfers to cover overdraft transactions are free.
  • Tiered interest. Earn between 0.01% to 0.01% APY depending on your balance.
  • Rate discounts. Get discounted rates for personal or home equity loans.
  • No fees on other accounts. Pay no maintenance fees on a TD Simple Checking account, Savings or Money Market account when you have the TD Beyond Checking account.
  • Opening bonus. Earn $300 when you open this account and receive direct deposits of at least $2,500 within 60 days of opening.

TD ATM network and fees

This account comes with a Visa debit card and over 1,900 ATMs across the country and Canada. If you can maintain a daily balance of at least $2,500, the bank will waive non-TD ATM fees. If not, you can expect to pay the following fees:

  • Domestic ATM fee. $3
  • Foreign ATM fee. $3

What should I look out for?

Despite the fee reimbursements and other money-saving features, there are a few things you should watch out for:

  • Service fees. TD charges $35 per paid overdraft charge, $25 per outgoing domestic wire transfer, and a $25 monthly fee to keep this account open.
  • ATM reimbursement requirement. To get reimbursed for non-TD ATM fees, you’ll need to maintain a daily balance of at least $2,500.
  • Limited branch and ATM availability. TD only has branches on the east coast and has about 1,900 ATMs, far fewer than other big banks.
