Other High-Yield Reward Checking Accounts

It's nice to see another 4.00% reward checking account. These rates are getting harder to find for reward checking accounts with rate caps of at least $25K. The one downside is that it requires 12 debit card purchases per month. The old 10-per-month requirement continues to become less common.
