Orange County, CA – A local credit union is eager to help small businesses with an account that has no monthly service fees. The Totally Free Business Checking account from American First is perfect for the home-based or small to mid-sized businesses.  We understand that every dollar counts especially for small businesses and non-profit groups, so we have introduced a Totally Free Business Checking that does just that – offers all the services including a free debit card with reward points, mobile banking, and bill pay service. “Most financial institutions will only allow up to 200 transactions on a business checking account before they charge additional fees,” says Barbara Hernandez, Senior Account Executive at American First. “Our business checking members enjoy peace of mind with up to 1,000 monthly transactions, and it’s just $50 to open the free checking and there’s no other balance requirement.”
As part of American First Credit Union’s commitment to the chamber of commerce community and working with employers to help employees live their best financial lives, the credit union also makes available a financial wellness program for groups through their Money Wise workshops.  These workshops are open to any company wishing to offer financial education to their workforce to increase awareness of how to save, budget, and become debt free. The workshops are free to any company and conducted early morning, mid-day or in the evenings to meet the company’s needs. “Many employers do not realize how much financial stress affects productivity at work and why our goal is to make financial education accessible and convenient,” said Hernandez.  To learn more about the free business checking account, please visit
