5.00% Reward Checking Account at Quad City Bank & Trust in Iowa - Local Only


Quad City Bank & Trust is offering a high-yield reward checking account called the U Account. It has the following rates if certain monthly requirements are met:
  • 5.00% APY on balances up to $25,000
  • 0.01% APY on portion of balance over $25,000
The monthly requirements include:
  • 15 Visa check card purchases (credit-based)
  • Maintain a valid email address
Additional features of the account regardless of the monthly requirements include:
  • $100 minimum opening deposit
  • No minimum balance requirement
  • No monthly service charge
  • ATM fee refunds
Unlike the typical reward checking account, I don't see any direct deposit or ACH debit requirement. Also, the ATM fee refunds don't appear to depend on meeting the monthly requirements.

It appears that a branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in the Iowa cities of Bettendorf, Davenport and Moline.

The bank's ratings for safety and soundness are above average: 4 stars (excellent) at BauerFinancial and 3 stars (performing) at Bankrate.com. Both ratings are based on 6/30/09 financial data. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1994 (FDIC Certificate # 33867).
