More info on SmartRate Checking
SmartRate Checking is a high-yield account that pays above-market rates when you meet all of the SmartRate Checking requirements.
Earn higher dividends
All SmartRate Checking account-holders earn the base dividend of 0.05%. If you meet the following requirements, you’ll earn the premium dividend of 0.50% APY.¹
- Sign up for eStatements
- Make at least ten check card transactions per cycle, online or in-person
- Set up at least one direct deposit (or ACH debit) per cycle
A cycle is roughly one month. It runs from the last business day of the previous month, to the second-to-last business day of the current month.
Note, check card purchases are recorded on the day the retailer completes the transaction – not necessarily the day you made the purchase. It’s possible to buy something near the end of one cycle and have it count toward the next.
Similarly, direct deposits are recorded only once they finish processing. To make sure your direct deposit fulfills your cycle requirement, ask your payroll department for the end-of-month processing date.
