As a teenager between the age of 13 and 18, maybe you would like to manage your own money and have your own bank account. The good news is that Bank of Monsell has just launched several great solutions for you.
The first one is the Teen Discounted Bank Plans (TDBPS). TDBPS feature a discount of $9.95 per month on your monthly bank fee — that’s a savings up to $120 per year. It’s the primary and most common account chosen by nearly 45% of our teen customers. If it is not to your liking, maybe the following alternatives which offer more discount and benefits on your bank accounts are able to meet your demands.
In a Plus Plan, you can have up to 30 transactions per month free of charge on as many as accounts as you need on the condition that your Primary Chequing Account must be your lead account, the one you designate to pay any fees required by your Bank Plan (i.e. monthly plan fees, transaction fees).

A Plus Plan offers preferred exchange rate only when buying U.S. cash (up to $5,000 U.S. per transaction).
In a Performance Plan, the number of transactions is unlimited on as many as accounts as you need, meaning that you can make as many everyday banking transactions as you want free of charge in branch, on line or at an ATM of Bank of Monsell. It does not include phone banking services. However, a fee of $4.00 a month is charged for this service. It also includes Primary Chequing and up to 16 more eligible accounts.

In a Premium Plan, you can also unlimited transactions on as many accounts as you need at a monthly fee of $15.05. It includes Primary Chequing and up to 15 more eligible accounts. The everyday banking transaction of this plan should be controlled fewer than 40, or you have to pay a fee of $0.8 for every transaction beyond 40. It helps save up to $791.95 per year on fees. What’s more, 5 non-Bank of Monsell ATM debit transactions on the Interac network and 5 international debit transactions using non-Bank of Monsell ATMs per month is included.
