Bank of American Fork is offering a reward checking account called MyRate Checking. It pays 3.60% APY on balances up to $25,000 (1.01% for above) and provides unlimited nationwide refunds of ATM fees if the following monthly requirements are met:

It appears that a branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in several Utah cities in the counties of Salt Lake and Utah. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 12773).
