The Fine Print

  • 3.00% Annual Percentage Yield (APY) displayed is paid on average daily balances up to $10,000, .50% APY between $10,001-$25,000 and .10% APY on remaining balance and/or non-qualifying accounts.
  • Rate is valid as of 02/01/14, rates are subject to change without giving notice.
  • Non-qualifying High Interest Checking accounts will be assessed a monthly fee, see fee schedule for applicable fees.

Avoiding Fees

According to the fee schedule there is a $5 monthly fee if the requirements are not met.


Must live or work in the Denver area, or you can join nationwide by first joining the Consumers United Association ($5 fee)

Our Verdict

This isn’t worth considering due to the fact you need to make $100 in debit card transactions monthly, there are much better high interest saving account options out there and it being a hard pull doesn’t help either.

  1. Alliant Credit union has branches in Chicago and Denver. They offer a 1% APY savings account that has no maximum and requires doing nothing. I’d check that out if you have more than $10,000.

    It’s a hardpull.

    It’d be a cool offer if not for hardpull and not for the fee when not meeting the requirements (which, BTW, appears to be $5/mo as per, not $10/mo as you mention; IMHO, at $10/mo, it’s be way too much of a liability for not meeting the reqs).
