BMO Harris Bank Launches New Suite of Consumer Checking Products

CHICAGO, May 15, 2017 /CNW/ - BMO Harris Bank today announced the launch of a new suite of consumer checking products, which is tailored to match the lifestyles of customers and focused on bringing simplicity to banking at any stage of life.

The differentiated product suite consists of:

  • BMO Harris Smart Money™ Account - A checking account with a predictable checking experience that combines a consistent, low monthly maintenance fee with no overdraft (OD) or non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees
  • BMO Harris Smart Advantage™ Account - A straightforward checking account with no monthly fees with eStatements and no minimum balance requirements 
  • BMO Harris Premier™ Account - A premium checking account that rewards customers for their relationship with special benefits such as no fees for many everyday banking services, unlimited non-BMO Harris ATM transactions and ATM surcharge fee rebates

The new suite of consumer checking products is simple, differentiated and relevant to people's banking needs. Each product is distinguished by a range of benefits suited for a particular lifestyle. Each product provides transparency to the customer so they can bank without surprises. Customers will also have access to the BMO Harris Mobile Banking® App, where they can use features like People Pay ─ a peer-to-peer money transfer option ─ and Mobile Cash ─ which allows customers to withdraw money from BMO Harris ATMs using their smartphones.

"Our customers have told us what they value and care about – accounts that are simple, transparent and easy to use," said Alexandra Dousmanis-Curtis, Group Head, U.S. Retail and Business Banking, BMO Harris Bank. "We've evolved our checking offerings to provide a diverse array of competitive products that help customers bank in a manner that best suits their lifestyle."

BMO Harris Bank recognizes that customer experiences continue to be redefined by today's fast-paced world and banking should be tailored to match lifestyles. Through the recent partnership announcement with the Allpoint® ATM network ─ the largest surcharge-free ATM network in the United States and worldwide ─ BMO Harris Bank has brought more access to  consumer and small business deposit customers by providing free access to 43,000 ATMs across the country with an additional 12,000 surcharge-free international Allpoint® ATMs. The new products, coupled with the Allpoint® ATM network and mobile banking features, create an unmatched banking experience for existing and future customers.
