There’s a Better Way to Manage Daily Finances – One That Prioritizes You.

Gain The Edge

Too many banks treat checking accounts as an afterthought, tacking on fees and adding obstacles that slow you down. Adventure Credit Union understands the value of providing free, high interest checking with all the convenience your busy life demands.

Edge Checking functions just like a traditional FREE checking account. The Edge comes with the 4% APY* you earn on balances up to $10,000, by simply meeting monthly requirements.  That means you can earn up to $400/year in dividends.*

If you don't meet the requirements, your Edge Checking functions as you'd expect your free checking would, no fees and easy access. Everything about our Edge Checking is tailored to you, from the free Debit Card to surcharge-free ATM access to unlimited check-writing.

Our high-yield checking account is ideal for Michigan residents in Grand Rapids, Lansing and beyond who are ready to move forward. Open a checking account online or at any of our branches.
