Gold Star Checking

Expect more from your checking account

SouthStar Bank’s Gold Star Checking gives you all the benefits of hassle-free banking – along with some Gold Star perks. Instead of spending money on service charges, you make money by earning interest. Gold Star Checking allows you to complete as many transactions as you need and receive statements with check images. Online banking and bill pay, mobile app with check deposit, and eStatements are also available at no additional charge.

Gold Star Checking is a great option when you maintain a minimum daily balance of $1,000, require a large number of transactions with no per item fees, prefer a monthly paper statement and want to earn interest.
