With the All-Inclusive plan, you’ll receive an annual fee rebate for one of those five same cards.

The All-Inclusive plan also has a number of free products and services, including a small safety deposit box, certified cheques and money orders, Canadian and U.S. dollar drafts, and Canadian and U.S. traveler cheques.

The bottom line

TD offers a wide variety of chequing accounts with various features. But if you want more features, the fees are higher. Although you can get these fees waived if you have a minimum monthly balance, you won’t earn any interest on your money.

You may be better off getting a no-fee chequing account from a digital bank and putting the money you would have needed to waive the monthly fee into a high-interest savings account. Check out our chequing account comparison tool to find the right account for you.
