The checking options at Connexus Credit Union are excellent, with the potential to earn high rates. Its website and online and mobile banking platforms are also generally helpful. The credit union’s savings accounts, however, aren’t especially good, and members don’t have access to many branch locations.
Ratings methodology | Updated Jan. 4, 2018
Xtraordinary checking offers an annual percentage yield of 1.75% for balances up to $25,000. You will, however, have to meet several spending and deposit requirements and accept paperless statements to qualify. If you’re able to satisfy these requirements, Connexus will cover up to $25 for fees racked up at other banks’ domestic ATMs.
Innovative and MyRewards checking weren’t factored into our ratings, but both are good options that also don’t charge monthly service fees. Innovative checking is a basic account that does not pay interest. MyRewards, meanwhile, offers an APY of 1.35% on balances up to $25,000, but you’ll have to meet a few requirements.
