Earn More with Interest-Bearing Checking Accounts

An interest-bearing checking account offers the interest accumulation of savings accounts with the withdrawal and check-writing ease of checking accounts. This best-of-both-worlds combination allows bank customers to accrue some interest on their balance while only needing to meet some minimum requirements.

Is an Interest-Bearing Account Right for Me?

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, interest-earning checking accounts are typically good for people who:

  • Carry large account balances
  • Spend less than they earn
  • Keep a stockpile of cash or funds
  • Are retired and want a higher-interest product than most of today’s investment accounts
  • Pay attention to their finances and can meet the criteria needed to open an interest-earning checking account
