This account has a $15 monthly fee. This is waived if you do either of the following:
- Maintain a minimum daily collected balance for each month of $10,000 or more.
- Set up an automatic, recurring monthly transfer of $25 or more from a BBVA Compass checking account to your BBVA Compass ClearChoice Money Market account. This transfer must be in effect at the time the Service Charge is assessed.
Early Account Termination Fee
If the account is closed within a year the bonus will be forfeit
The 2.4% APY is competitive, but there are better high yield accounts available. The $100 bonus is good though, although most people will need to keep $10,000 in there to avoid the monthly fee. . g 2.4% APY isn’t much lower than the best basic savings account rates though and because of that this will be added to our list of the best savings account bonuses.
