It’s no secret that Colorado Springs is a popular spot for tourists to take in the beauty of Colorado. For those of us who call it home, picking the best checking account Colorado Springs isn’t just about numbers—it’s about embracing our community spirit. Armed Forces Bank understands Colorado Springs’ unique ties to nature and the people who live here. Whether you’re hiking through the Garden of the Gods or cheering for the Switchbacks downtown, Armed Forces Bank has a checking account that fits seamlessly with your Colorado lifestyle.

Best checking accounts for Colorado locals

As Colorado locals, we know support is at the heart of our community. At Armed Forces Bank, we believe a bank should be more than just a financial institution, it should create an impact on the community we serve. We’ve designed our checking accounts to be a helpful tool so Colorado Springs residents can achieve their financial goals. Let’s learn why:

1. Banking on-the-move

Life is busy enough, so why not make it easier with mobile1 banking? With each of our checking accounts, you have the freedom to check your balance, deposit checks and even pay bills all from your phone! No matter if you’re spending an afternoon at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo or camping for the weekend, you can feel secure accessing your funds whenever you need.

2. Features that save money

As lovely as living in Colorado Springs can be, no one can deny that it’s gotten a little more expensive to live here. That’s why we have a feature for each of our checking accounts called Saving Cents. You can opt into this program as soon as you gain access to your checking and savings account. Saving Cents automatically rounds up your debit card purchases and puts the change in your savings account. You’re in control—pick increments from $1 to $5 for each roundup. Every night while you rest, we do the work and automatically deposit the extra change. This is a great way to build your savings little by little!

3. Financial freedom

We like options here in Colorado, especially when it’s deciding between hiking Palmer Park or taking the dog to see their friends at the Bear Creek Dog Park. We like knowing that we’re not boxed into what we can do. That’s how we feel at Armed Forces Bank when it comes to your checking. We don’t put a limit on withdrawals, transfers, or balance inquiries when you visit an ATM in the MoneyPass® Network.2 Without these limitations, you can bank however you want.

4. Rewards that work for locals

Each of our checking accounts has unique perks and features. In our Access Rewards Checking,*+ we offer cell phone protection and roadside assistance. How many times have you damaged your phone while mountain biking down the Hogback Ridge Trail? With our cell phone protection3 plan, you don’t have to sweat it when your phone slips out of your pocket on the trail. Roadside assistance can also be a life-saver, literally and figuratively. Driving through the Rocky Mountains can be treacherous at times, and no matter how experienced you are driving these roads, accidents can still happen. With our roadside assistance program,3 you don’t have to worry about blown tires or falling rock damage because help is always available.

Which Armed Forces Bank checking account is perfect for me?

At Armed Forces Bank, we have several checking accounts to choose from. It’s important to know your financial goals when selecting your checking account. We already covered two features of our Access Rewards Checking*+ accounts, but it gets even better if you like shopping. With savings and exclusive deals on dining, shopping, and entertainment, you have even more ways to savor the beautiful downtown Colorado Springs area.

If you’re studying at UCCS, Pikes Peak State College, or any of the wonderful universities we have in The Springs, the Student Checking* account might be a great fit. This checking account was designed specifically for students 23 years old and younger. Get a handle on managing your own finances with overdraft protection, programmable account alerts, and free financial education. Let’s set you up for financial success!

Are your financial goals somewhere in between? Our Access Investment Checking* account focuses on building your savings and making the most out of your investments. Or if you just want a straightforward checking account without frills, then our Access Digital Checking* may work better for you.
