How E-Interest Checking Works
Our E-Interest Checking account works like most other accounts. The difference is that you earn a premium interest rate on balances up to $25,0001 and no monthly fee by meeting a few simple requirements:
- Be enrolled and receive E-Statement each cycle
- Have at least 25 debit card purchases post and settle each cycle
- Have at least one Direct Deposit post each cycle
Not complying with the three above items will result in a $6 monthly fee. This interest-bearing account only requires a $100 minimum opening deposit.
Additionally, you get access to all of the great banking tools and services we offer:
- Online Banking
- Online Bill Pay
- Mobile Banking
- 5 Free Mobile Deposits per month2
- Instant Issue MasterCard® Debit Card
- Unlimited check writing
