4.01% Reward Checking Account at Classic Bank in Texas


Classic Bank
Update 1/12/09: The top yield has fallen to 4.01% APY. Refer to the bottom of the post for the rate history.

Classic Bank is offering a reward checking account that pays 4.01% APY on balances up to $25,000 (1.01% for above) and refunds all ATM nationwide fees if the following monthly requirements are met:
  • 10 Visa check card purchases
  • one direct deposit or direct withdrawal
  • receive electronic statements and maintain a valid email address
If these are not met, the rate falls to 0.25%. Minimum initial deposit is $100. There are no minimum balance requirements and no monthly maintenance fees.

The bank is listed at CheckingFinder but only when you enter a Texas zip code. So it appears that anyone in Texas can open this account online from this CheckingFinder page.

Branches are located in the Texas cities of Cameron, Rosebud, Rockdale and Giddings. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 3126).
