What is Camino’s Elite Checking Account?

Camino’s Elite Checking Account is a type of checking account designed to help you better manage your money. This type of checking  account also has safety features like Idnotify® by Experian® to stay on top of your credit and detect signs of fraud.

What Are the Advantages of Camino’s Elite Checking Account?

This comprehensive and convenient checking account has robust features that will empower you to set yourself up for financial success today and tomorrow.  A few key benefits include:

  • Receiving your paycheck up to 2 days early 1: This flexibility could be a financial lifesaver when your cash flow is restricted by giving you the funds you need to buy essential items, pay rent and bills, and avoid fees and penalties.
  • No fee ATM withdrawals nationwide 2: You shouldn’t have to pay a fee to access your money. No-fee ATM withdrawals could help save more money, especially if you make frequent withdrawals.
  • 3-Bureau credit monitoring: Credit monitoring could be a great source of security that will notify you of new credit inquiries, dings to your credit score, new accounts opened, public records added, or change of address to your credit record.
  • Receiving a debit card: A debit card provides you with access to funds through an ATM, greater security, and minimal costs when you factor in purchasing checks. A credit card could also help with budgeting and offer price protection. 
  • No minimum balance requirements: With a no-minimum balance, you don’t have to worry about extra charges because we understand that life happens. 
  • Free cashier’s checks 3: Cashier’s checks can be a safe and dependable way to make large payments in transactions where cash or personal checks are not accepted, but purchasing them can add up. With free cashier’s checks, you can enjoy the convenience of this method of payment free of charge! 
  • Free online & mobile banking: Online and mobile banking allows you to manage your bank accounts, pay bills, and deposit checks securely and conveniently.  
  • Free outgoing wires 4: Wire transfers can be a great way to send sums of money to another party in minutes, providing a quick, secure, and easy way to transfer money.
  • The ability to send and receive money with Zelle®: Zelle® is a fast, intuitive, and secure way to send or request money with friends, family, and others you trust, even if they bank with a different financial institution than you do.

An important advantage of using this checking account is the financial security and peace of mind it provides. Your account will be federally insured up to $250,000 by NCUA because protecting your personal information is also one of our top priorities.

5 VantageScore 3.0, with scores ranging from 300 to 850, is a user-friendly credit score model developed by the three major nationwide credit reporting agencies, Experian®, TransUnion®, and Equifax®. VantageScore 3.0 is used by some but not all lenders. Higher scores represent a greater likelihood that you’ll pay back your debt, so you are viewed as being a lower credit risk to lenders. A lower score indicates to lenders that you may be a higher credit risk. There are three different major credit reporting agencies, Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax that maintain a record of your credit history known as your credit file. Credit scores are based on the information in your credit file at the time it is requested. Your credit file information can vary from agency to agency because some lenders report your credit history to only one or two of the agencies. Your credit scores can vary if the information they have on file for you is different. Since the information in your file can change over time, your credit scores also may be different from day-to-day. Different credit scoring models can also give a different assessment of the credit risk (risk of default) for the same consumer and same credit file. There are different credit scoring models which may be used by lenders and insurers. Your lender may not use VantageScore 3.0, so don’t be surprised if your lender gives you a score that’s different from your VantageScore. (And your VantageScore 3.0 may differ from your score under other types of VantageScores). Just remember that your associated risk level is often the same even if the number is not. For some consumers, however, the risk assessment of VantageScore 3.0 could vary, sometimes.
