Service charge is rebated if you make at least one direct deposit AND have a minimum of 15 debit card transactions (pinned or signature items) per statement cycle
If you do not use the account much, but carry higher balances, Premier Checking may be a better option. Or if you only have Direct Deposit, converting to Express Checking may work better.
