This Columbus, Ohio, credit union pays 2% on all checking and savings with a minimum 25 debit card transactions per month. The customer service is fine. The only drawback, and this is minor in my opinion, is the limited integration with Quicken personal finance software. CME doesn't export the name of the payee to Quicken. But it does export the proper amount of each transaction and the correct date, so that's good enough in return for 2% interest without a ceiling. CME's web site fully displays the payee and all information on the transactions, including handy little icons for some of the better-known merchants.
CME FCU in Columbus, Ohio, reduced a 1% EZ to Earn savings/checking interest rate linked to 25 monthly debit card charges to 0.50% as of April 1, 2013. There still is no maximum. This reduction was announced in an email to members in March. There apparently is a 1.01% rate listed on the web site for a "Great to Save" account with these conditions: "Deposit any amount into your savings or checking account and automatically transfer $15 to $1,000 per month into a high-rate 12-month certificate! After 12 months, put the money anywhere you want, like another certificate, or towards that special something you always wanted!"
It's not clear to me from the web site what the Great to Save account offers or what the maximum investment is.
