Happy 2013, When Rate Cuts And Requirement Inflations Set In!

Unfortunately, as of January 8th, 2013, it appears that Select Bank and Trust will be cutting its reward checking rate to 2.02%, and raising the monthly requirements from 10 card transactions to 15 (no mininum transaction amount). Not terrible at this strange moment in history, but once again, hardly worth the trouble!

They Keep Dropping The Rates, Again, With Zero Notification . . .

Down to 1.01% now. With all the hoops for the minimal return, the main thing now left to be said for it is it's "free", except when you have to take time to deal with their occasional screwups. Coastal Federal Credit Union is looking better by the day, as are things like shopping, stocks, long-term tax-advantaged debt repayments, mattresses . . .

Stay Away From This Bank

This is a slimy little bank.  They've cheated me out of my monthly interest on 3 separate occasions, claiming the requirements were not met, even though they were.

Now they've lowered their rate.  Not unexpected.  But they also increased their debit card use requirements.  Only problem is they didn't notify anyone.  A lot of their customers are in for a shock at the end of the current cycle when they get no interest payment.  Yes, it's true that these changes can be found deep in their website, if you knew to look for it in the first place.  But a change of terms of this magnitude should have been announced via a mailing.  Pretty poor business practices.

I'll be closing my account at the end of the current cycle.

So Far, So Good!

No problems with this bank to date!  The requirements for the EasyGreen Checking account are simple and straightforward, and the interest rate is currently at an outstanding rate (3.05% APY up to $25,000).  You do need to go to a branch to open an account, but you get a green piggybank and a generous supply of starter checks in the mail for your trouble.  Highly recommended!
