Student Checking Account is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first bank account I chose Fairwinds because I have 2 friends who use Fairwinds and they’ve said nothing but great things, they also don’t charge me unnecessary fees, so that’s definitely a plus! The app is super convenient for depositing paychecks on the go, I love it!
