Usually, most checking accounts don't pay interest at all or if they do, a very high minimum balance is needed.

Yes - if the bank is giving an interest on the checking account. But, banks usually pay very little or 0% interest for checking accounts because of the frequent transactions and the liquid nature of the money in it.


Banks pay interest on savings accounts to give depositors an incentive to keep money into their savings accounts, which the bank will be able to use to generate a profit, usually by loaning it to someone else. That is the main business of banks.


Banks let customers borrow the money that you keep in your savings account. Since they offer you an interest on the money you keep in your account and they need to make a profit from the loans they grant, they usually charge more interest. This interest is usually atleast 2-3% greater than the interest they offer on deposit accounts.


The primary reason interest checking accounts are hard to find is because of how they work. Interest checking accounts provide a mid to high interest rate on money in an account, along with the ability to write checks and transfer money. An interest checking account is a mix between an easily accessible account, which allows you to use checks and debit cards, and a high interest account, which usually doesn't allow the freedom to use checks.

One limitation of a savings account is the amount of withdrawals you can make per month. Unlike a checking account, which let's you withdraw money until there are no funds left, savings accounts are restricted to 6 withdrawals per month. Another limitation is that withdrawals usually can only put into a linked checking account- you can't directly transfer funds from a low-interest savings account to a savings account with a higher yield.

Banking and one's financial stability are two entities that go hand in hand. Financial institutions help many people grow their wealth in a number of ways and establish useful strategies to reach both short term and long term financial goals. One of the most popular and traditional ways for one to start saving for the future is to open a savings account in one of the many major banks. Savings accounts are the best way for one to start some type of plan for reaching long term goals. Not only do savings accounts help families and individuals save for long term goals such as the purchase of a car or new home, but it also pays interest on the amount of money that is held in the bank's trust. There are many types of savings accounts one can choose from when he or she decides to begin saving for the future. However, the most basic savings accounts are far more easier to manage and track. A simple savings account from a major bank will allow the person to set aside money in a separate account that is to go untouched for a due amount of time. Unlike checking accounts, savings accounts usually have no checks or debit cards that accompany that particular account. Savings accounts cannot be accessed like a checking account, and there are many savings accounts that penalize those who withdraw money from the account. Most of the savings accounts that accrue penalties for withdrawals are high interest savings accounts, which normally have a due amount of time that a person must wait to withdraw his or her money. High interest savings accounts pay the person who opens the checking account a higher interest rate than other savings accounts. For this reason, he or she may not be able to withdraw his or her money for up to six months without a penalty. These types of savings accounts have often been compared to CD's and money market accounts although there are many ways in which these accounts differ. Find the Best Rate For those people who know he or she will be able to keep their hands away from their savings account, he or she should find the bank with the highest interest rate. By reading all of the rules and regulations on the savings account, many will find this the best way to begin saving for the future.
