Sme institutins may require yu t keep a minimum amunt in yur accunt, such as $200. If yur balance falls belw this amunt, the bank may charge a small fee r clse yur accunt within a certain time perid. Annual r mnthly fees. Sme institutins may charge a fee just fr husing yur accunt. Insufficient funds charge. If yu spend mre than is in yur accunt, sme financial institutins will allw the purchase and charge yu an insufficient funds fee, usually $15 t $30 per purchase!

Apply fr a secured credit card. This type f card requires yu t save the mney first as cllateral fr yur line f credit. Yur credit line will be a percentage f yur depsit, typically frm 50 t 100% f yur accunt balance.
