Other Reward Checking Accounts

This is the first reward checking account that I've found in Wyoming. I'm still looking for ones in Alaska and South Dakota. To find reward checking accounts in other areas of the nation or to learn more about these accounts, please refer to my High Yield Checking website.

They did not even change their APR (Dividend Rate, should be 3.94% instead of 4.9%), but the 4.01% APY is shown in the table and the footnote.
