R Bank is headquartered in Round Rock and is the 131st largest bank in the state of Texas. It is also the 1,473rd largest bank in the nation. It was established in 2009 and as of September of 2018, it had grown to 97 employees at 8 locations. R Bank has an A health rating.
When RBank recently upgraded their online banking software, they also changed the date of their qualifying period. I just got caught in it. The old period was the 25th to the 24th of the month. With the new system the moved it one day to 26th to 25th of the month.

0.71% on funds > $15,000 (down from 1.0%)
Customer representative said that an email was being prepared and would be out soon.
Ken, Why doesn't R Bank show up in the list of Rewards Checking Accounts in Texas with high interest rates? After finding your Nov 2013 review of R Bank Rewards Checking, I opened a Rewards Checking Account at rbanktexas , and have been very satisfied. Pays 3.25% on the first 15k, and then 1.01% on the balance above 15k. I had to open in person, so easy for people in Central Texas, but not elsewhere.
It looks like R Bank reduced their reward checking rate this month (july). Unfortunately, they don't seem to publish these rates on their web page nor do they inform the account holders when the change takes place takes place. I'll post more info after I contact them next week.
