Eco Challenge #21

Save Money, Time and Trees with eChecking

Kermit the Frog laments that "it's not easy being green", however we beg to differ! By switching to online banking, not only are trees saved, but money and time are as well. First Community Bank and Trust offers a checking account that will help you become more efficient and environmental. First eChecking is our online checking account that rewards users for being "green".

Save Trees: According to a report by consulting firm Javelin Strategy and Research, if all U.S. households viewed and paid their bills online, the reduction in paper would save almost 17 million trees a year. In addition, there would also be a reduction in the amount of the other resources used to produce, deliver and, eventually, dispose of those bills. Add to that the paper used for monthly statements and the numbers become even more significant.

Save Money: With First eChecking, there is no annual fee for the Debit Mastercard, no minimum balance requirement, and no monthly account fee. There is no limit to the number of checks that may be written and, if a minimum of five bills are paid each month, there is no fee for First ePay, our online bill pay service.

Save Time: Bank when and where you want by using our suite of electronic banking services - bank online with First eBanc; stay connected with First eMobile; pay bills with First ePay; and receive monthly statements the day they are prepared with First eStatements. Also, with Direct Deposit, payroll or other regular deposits get to your account faster.

Maybe it's not easy being green for Kermit, but for you when it comes to banking, it's a breeze! n
