    • Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and settle
    • Have at least 1 ACH credit or ACH payment transaction post and settlement

  • US Citizens only

Avoiding Fees

This account has no monthly fees to worry about.

Our Verdict

Unfortunately now it’s just for Missouri.

One of the better nationwide high interest accounts with a large maximum deposit. It doesn’t look like the ACH requirement is very strict and basically any ACH transfer will trigger it. Debit card transaction requirement shouldn’t be too difficult to meet either, some ideas on that here. It’s also nice there is no monthly fees to worry about if you don’t meet the requirements.

Is there any way to add external accounts for ACH transfers? All I see is the popmoney P2P service.

Yup, just noticed this. I think I am about done juggling HY accoutns now that they are all 2% or less. Not worth the effort anymore

Interest rate is dropping from 3.01%APY to 2.01%APY Effective: Friday, May 22, 2020.
Just received email from the bank that says “current market conditions require us to make a slight adjustment at this time”. “… for customers who meet the monthly rewards qualifications, we are proud to offer a 2.01% Annual Percentage Yield on balances up to $25,000.”

Just opened an account–it took almost 20 days to get everything finalized (due to pandemic impact). After it all went through, the rate was changed to 2.01%.

Just applied online. The end said a rep would be in touch in 1 business day. Ugh. I hoped it would be all done online. Hope they don’t ask me to fax/send docs in or anything. Just trying to get that interest rate!

Not surprising. Thanks for the heads-up, though. I was about to join. I’ll just stay with Capital One’s 1.5%. It’s not worth jumping through hoops for 0.5%. Thanks again for the update.

3.01 for now. My local cu just went down to 2.01 after a couple of years at 3.01.

Can anyone confirm if the “US citizens only” requirement is still enforced?
