I noticed that my bank had a checking acount that pays 5% interest rather than .00025% interest. This is a bit of a no-brainer, but they don’t exactly tell you how easy it is to switch. I got up the courage to ask the clerk about it, and she just switched something on the computer, and had me sign something! I did not have to change my checking account number. 5% is also quite a good deal when you compare it to what the stock market is paying out, and is more than online checking. There are some hoops to jump through:
1. You must use your debit card ten times a month to get the high interest.
2. You must have automatic deposit to the account
3. You must use online banking at least once a month.
All of these things, except for maybe for #1, I was already doing. Another benefit – you get reimbursed for charges at an ATM machine up to $25 a month. There is a maximum (like $35,000 or some strataspheric-like number). This looks like a good deal.
