Create a Relay account for free

Here’s a personal story from Lexi, the founder of They Got Acquired.

A few months ago, I wanted to open a new bank account.

My old-school bank said I had to do that in person. So I took the train all the way from my house in West Virginia into Washington, D.C… and then spent four hours opening an account.

I was incredibly frustrated on the train ride home. I’d wasted an entire day doing something that should be quick and easy.

That’s when it hit me: I’ve run online businesses for the last 15 years. Why have I not tried an online bank?!

So I researched all the options, ended up choosing Relay — and already made the switch.

Here’s why I’m pleased with Relay so far:

✅ It’s easy to do all my banking from home

✅ It’s free (except wire transfers). They offer a $30/month upgrade, but so far the free tier has been plenty for us

✅ No account fees, overdraft fees or required account minimums

✅ Next-day ACH is easy and free

✅ It’s built for a Profit First setup (the Profit First creator even uses it)

In this video, I walk through the pros and cons of this move.

Ready to give Relay a try?

When we told Relay our founder Lexi was moving to their bank, they offered to sponsor They Got Acquired so we could tell you about their platform.

That means we now have a bank that’s free, easy to use, and supports small businesses.
