Ratings methodology | Reviewed Sept. 28, 2016
The most basic account, Innovative checking, doesn’t have a monthly fee or an initial deposit requirement. It doesn't have any sign-up requirements, but also doesn't pay interest. The two advanced options, MyRewards and Xtraordinary checking, which weren’t factored into our ratings, don’t have monthly fees either. For balances up to $25,000, Xtraordinary checking offers an annual percentage yield of 1.75%, while MyRewards accounts earn 1.35% APY.
You will, however, have to meet a few requirements to qualify for the higher-end accounts. If you’re able to qualify, Connexus covers up to $25 for fees racked up at other banks’ cash machines.
