5.00% Reward Checking Account at Neighbors Credit Union in Missouri


Neighbors Credit Union
Neighbors Credit Union is offering a reward checking account called Green Checking. It pays 5.00% APY on balances up to $25,000 (0.50% for above) and refunds up to $10/month in ATM fees if the following monthly requirements are met:
  • 12 signature-based debit card purchases
  • one direct deposit
  • log into online banking
  • receive e-statements
If these are not met, the rate falls to 0.50%. There are no minimum balance requirements and no monthly fees. If the above requirements are not met for 90 days of account opening, the account is converted to a Basic Green Checking with a rate of 0.25%.

This top yield is listed in the credit union's rate table. Only the top yield is shown. I had to call for the balance cap and the other yields. According to the CSR, this account was started in early November 2008. Hopefully, the high yield will last for a while.

Membership is open to those who live or work within St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, or Jefferson County, Misouri. Please refer to the credit union's Who Can Join section for the full details.

Branches are located in St. Louis, Fenton, Florissant and Hazelwood, MO. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 62905).
