Are bonuses worth it?

If you’re debating between a Chase account and one of its competitors, these bonuses may be enough to swing your decision. But make sure you can avoid any monthly fees that might apply. If you’re on the prowl for a new savings account, prioritizing a high interest rate will probably earn you more money in the long run.
