Update 11/08/09: The reward checking account is no longer listed on the website.

Update 10/15/09: The top rate has fallen to 1.20% APY. Refer to the bottom of the post for the rate history.

Solutions Bank is offering a reward checking account called SolutionsChecking that pays 1.20% APY on balances up to $50,000 (1.02% for above) and refunds ATM fees if the following monthly requirements are met:
  • 10 debit card purchases
  • One direct deposit or ACH auto debit
  • access online banking
  • receive electronic statements
If these are not met, the rate falls to 0.50%. The minimum initial deposit is $100. There are no minimum balance requirements and no monthly service charges.

It appears a branch visit may be required to open an account. Branches are located in the Kansas City metro area and in Plano, Texas. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 4731).

Thanks, I have Bank of Idaho listed at my High Yield Checking website.

It looks like they have recently increased the rate to 5.01% APY. It had dropped from 6.01% to 4.01%. I have more info at this account review.
