Other Reward Checking Accounts

This reward checking account at Jefferson County is the first one that I've seen to require a minimum amount of purchases per month. For those who prefer to do most of their large purchases with a cash back credit card, this could be an issue.

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.
