Navigant Credit Union
Update 10/04/09: The top rate has fallen to 3.15% APY.

Navigant Credit Union is offering a reward checking account called Journe Rewards Checking. The account offers the following features if certain monthly requirements are met:
  • 3.15% APY on balances from $10 to $25,000
  • 1.01% APY on balances over $25,000
  • 0.10% base rate if qualifications are not met
  • ATM fees nationwide refunded up to $25 per cycle

  • receive e-statements
Additional features of the account regardless of the monthly requirements include:

The credit union's Membership page doesn't provide many details about eligibility. I called on Friday and was told that they require a branch visit to join and to open this reward checking account. Also, you have to be a resident of Rhode Island or Southern Massachusetts.

Branches are located in the Rhode Island cities of Central Falls, Cumberland, Lincoln, Pawtucket, East Providence, Smithfield and Woonsocket.

The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 62882).
