First National Bank of Omaha Premier Checking Account

Get more from your checking account, and earn interest on your balance.

securely on the bank's website

The First National Bank of Omaha Premier Checking account is designed for those with higher balances looking to take advantage of competitive APY rates, and enjoy additional relationship benefits with FNBO.

Just like the FNBO Free Checking Account, the FNBO Premier Checking comes with almost all things free! When you open an FNBO Premier Checking, you'll receive a complimentary Visa Debit card - and there's a variety available for you to choose from! You can use this Visa worldwide, whether it be for physical, in-store payments, online purchases or at ATMs. With free access to over 55,000 Allpoint ATMs across the globe, you'll be able to withdraw funds without incurring any additional fees. If you ever find yourself at an ATM that doesn't belong to the network, FNBO won't charge you extra - but the ATM owner might, so keep that in mind. You can also link your FNBO Visa debit card to a digital wallet, which is quite a convenient way to make payments using your device, as you won't need to carry your physical Visa debit card. This reduces the risk of identity theft and financial fraud! Speaking of financial scams, FNBO does its best to ensure the security of its customers and their personal and account information using advanced technology to protect you when you use their Online and Mobile Banking. Plus, you can bank with confidence, knowing all your deposits are FDIC-insured as well!

As an FBNO Premier Checking customer, you'll receive many perks free of charge, including monthly statements, bank logo checks, and more. Additionally, you'll enjoy a suite of benefits designed exclusively for the owners of the FNBO Premier Checking account. However, these are attractive only to those looking to open an additional bank account with FNBO, whether it be a savings account or a loan. Either of these might be useful, though, if you're interested in First National Bank of Omaha's overdraft protection plans, as you can link your secondary account to your FNBO Premier Checking. This way, if you ever run out of funds, money will be automatically transferred from your linked to your FNBO Premier Checking account, and you'll avoid overdraft fees (most of the times). Setting up account alerts are a much better way to keep an eye on your current balance, and prevent its becoming negative altogether.

The APY rates offered with the FNBO Premier Checking are fairly competitive, so if you'd like to earn interest on your balance, you should definitely consider opening this checking account. Even better if you can meet the monthly fee waiver requirements, as you'll get to enjoy all these things for free! In any way, the monthly fee isn't as high, although there might be more compelling interest-bearing checking account offers that don't cost a dime. Shop around, and make a decision based on your financial needs and possibilities.

First National Bank of Omaha Premier Checking Account FAQ

There are two overdraft protection options First National Bank of Omaha offers to its customers, namely:

1. Overdraft Protection

By setting up Overdraft Protection, you'll be able to link an FNBO savings account or an FNBO line of credit to your Premier Checking, so your transactions will be completed even if you don't have enough money in your balance. The funds will be automatically transferred from your linked to your Premier Checking, and you'll avoid overdrafts.

2. Overdraft Service

With Overdraft Service, FNBO will know how to proceed when you don't have enough money in either your primary or your linked FNBO account that's part of Overdraft Protection. Depending on your decision, FNBO will approve or decline any such transaction, but you still may be charged overdraft or NSF fees.

2. What is Overdraft Forgiveness?

With First National Bank of Omaha's Overdraft Forgiveness, you're allowed to overdraw your account once per year. This means you might overdraw your account or have a check returned without incurring any overdraft or NSF fees, regardless of whether you've set up Overdraft Protection or not! It's basically a yearly overdraft/NSF fee waiver.

3. Will I still be charged overdraft fees if I set up overdraft protection?
