  • USAA Opened to Everyone:


    If you've heard us rave about USAA's stellar financial services but grown sad when you learned that it's only available for military-members and their family, have heart: you can get still get access to some of their services like banking and checking.

    You can apply online at or over the phone at 1-800-531-USAA. Unfortunately, cool features like depositing checks via iPhone or scanner are only available for full-fledged USAA members. Fortunately, however, cool features like the best customer service in the business are open to all.

    You also get free checks and up to $15 in ATM fees/month covered. To apply for online banking, all it takes is a $25 initial deposit. Here is the list of USAA products available for non-military members:

    USAA's investment products, most bank deposit products, life insurance, and shopping and discounts are available to other individuals. While auto and property insurance policies are not available due to membership eligibility requirements, we can still help.

    I have an account because they will accept a General Discharge to open an account but remain inelligible for car insurance because of the discharge type. Well enough though, I only pay $400 every six months via Geico for full coverage anyways.
