3.82% Reward Checking Account at a Colorado Bank (The State Bank)


Update 11/22/08: The top yield has fallen to 3.82% APY. See bottom of the post for the rate history.

The State Bank has a reward checking account that pays 3.82% APY on balances up to $25,000 (1.01% for above) and refunds ATM fees (up to $25 per cycle) if the following monthly requirements are met: 1) 12 debit card signature transactions, 2) one direct deposit or ACH auto debit, and 3) receive electronic statements. If these are not met, the rate falls to 0.20%. The checking account is free with free online bill pay even if the requirements are not met.

It's a small bank with a very basic website, so I would guess they require a branch visit to open accounts. Branches are located in the Colorado cities of La Junta, Rocky Ford and Peyton. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 1778).
