Two years ago, My e-Banc introduced its Super Saver Money Market Account (MMA), offering 1.11% APY on all balances. Following several rate increases and restructuring, the Super Saver MMA now has tiered APYs: 2.25% APY on balances of $100k and above, and 2.00% APY on balances below $100k.

Super Saver MMA Details

  • Opening Deposit – a minimum of $5k.
  • Check Writing – up to six checks per statement cycle.
  • Debit Card – available if opened with an Advantage checking account, otherwise an ATM card will be issued.
  • Monthly Fee – if the average daily balance should fall below $5k during a statement cycle, a $15 “Below Minimum Balance Fee” will be assessed. That fee can be waived if the account owner has aggregate deposits of $5k+.
  • Early Closing Fee – there is a $50 fee if the account is closed within six months of opening.
  • Withdrawal Fee – there is a $5 fee per transaction beyond the permitted six monthly transactions. “We will close or reclassify your Account if these limits are exceeded in any 3 months during any 12 months.”

Flex Time Deposit

My e-Banc has been offering the Flex Time Deposit for more than four years. While the name might be confusing, the Flex Time Deposit is a just CD with a very useful feature: two penalty-free partial withdrawals allowed any time during the term. The Flex Time Deposit has a term length of 11 months and earns 2.30% APY. The minimum opening deposit is $10k, with no stated balance cap.

As stated in the fine print on the Flex Term Deposit page,

A seven (7) day notice is required prior to any withdrawal. Early withdrawal penalties
will apply once the number of withdrawals without incurring penalty is exceeded.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty (following the two allowed penalty-free partial withdrawals) is three months interest.

eRelationship Savings Account

The latest addition to My eBanc’s product line is the eRelationship Savings Account, which offers tiered APYs of 2.40% ($100k and above) and 2.15% (less than $100k). The minimum opening deposit is $25k, which is the same average daily balance amount required to avoid the $15 Below Minimum Balance Fee.

The eRelationship Savings account can only be opened online by customers who have an existing Time Deposit (Online Time Deposit, Jumbo Online Time Deposit, or Flex Time Deposit) or will open a Time Deposit at the same time.

A debit card is available, but “will be set to ATM withdrawals only, with no Point of Sale (POS) transactions." As described above, the same Early Closing and Withdrawal fees apply to the eRelationship Savings account.

Advantage Checking

My eBanc’s Advantage Checking account is an interest-bearing checking account, which earns 0.50% APY on all balances. The Advantage Checking account can be opened with a $5k minimum deposit, which is the same average daily balance amount required to avoid the $15 Below Minimum Balance Fee. There is unlimited free checking writing, with the first set of checks (50) provided without cost.

How the Super Saver MMA Compares

When compared to the Money Market Accounts tracked by DepositAccounts.com that are available nationwide, My eBanc’s Super Saver Money Market Account APY currently ranks eighth, regardless of minimum balance requirements.

To search for Money Market rates, both nationwide and state specific, please refer to the Money Market Rates Table page.

How the Flex Time Deposit Compares

As I’ve stated in previous blog posts, no-penalty CDs are not that common and the longer the term, the more competitive the CD. When compared to other nationally available no-penalty CDs, My eBanc's 11-month Flex Time Deposit APY offers a lower APY, a shorter term length, and a higher minimum deposit. On the plus side, the Flex Time Deposit offers two penalty-free partial withdrawals.

To look for the best CD rates, both nationwide and state specific, please refer to our CD Rates Table page.

The above rates are accurate as of 3/8/2019.
