High Interest Checking Accounts In Albemarle, NC


It was not far from Albemarle, NC where in 1799 the 17-pound hunk of gold was found that sparked America’s first gold rush. While you may not strike it rich mining for gold, a high-interest checking account from First Bank is another shiny little nugget you can line your pockets with.

A high-interest checking account earns interest at a rate more closely competitive with those of savings accounts or other investment tools but still provides many of the same conveniences of a simple checking account. In short, it’s the best of both worlds.
