No. Checking accounts do not pay any interest. Since the money available in your checking account is liquid cash which is used for day to day purposes and can be withdrawn multiple times banks do not offer interest on cash maintained in a checking account.

No, checking accounts typically do not pay any interest at all.


Savings accounts pay interest on the money in the account. Most checking accounts do not.


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.


Hey, you tell US who's cheaest / best!


It varies, interest is typically paid monthly or quarterly depending on the type of account it is. Checking accounts ususally pay interest monthly while savings and certificates typically pay interest quarterly. It is up to the bank on how often they pay interest.


Many checking accounts do not offer interest on the money in your savings account. This is a disadvantage because the money you put in a savings account will collect interest, where a checking account will not.


No. Checking accounts in general do not usually earn interest. Especially free ones, if you want to earn interest, you should check on different savings accounts and check with your bank.


In todays world many checking accounts carry a monthly service fee. Of course, printed checks also cost you money. An interest bearing checking account can pay you and offset the expenses of having the account.


Usually, most checking accounts don't pay interest at all or if they do, a very high minimum balance is needed. Usually when it is available, savings does have more interest paid, but not a significant amount more. Because checking accounts are made to be used, interest is often lower. Savings, and variations of it, tend to be higher because it is not touched...as often.


"A high interst checking account is a type of checking account that earns interest. Usually these accounts have higher interest than a regular checking account, but not as high as a savings account."


The standard interest rate on an interest bearing checking account at a Chase bank is 0.01%. They have a variety of checking accounts with the same interest rate or less.


Chase Bank does have free checking as long as you have a minimum balance of 100 dollars. there are also interest bearing checking accounts were if you maintain a balance of at least 1500 dollars your account will receive interest on your checking account.


Generally a savings account pays more interest, but there are some checking accounts that offer rates that are very competitive to savings 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.


Actually it is the other way round. The interest rate paid out on a savings account is generally more than that paid out on a checking account. Checking accounts offer very little or no interest at all in most countries whereas savings account offer a small interest rate.


Certain checking accounts have interest rates because they require that the customer keep a minimum balance in the account each month. This money is used by the bank to make more money.


Banks typically only offer a high interest return in a savings account, not a checking account. Some banks allow unlimited transfers between savings and checking accounts, so you could get a high interest savings account and transfer money as necessary to your checking account.


A savings bank is a bank that is dedicated to savings accounts. They don't have all the freedoms of a checking account, but pay higher interest rates.


Both Checking Accounts and Savings Accounts are basic types of bank accounts provided by banks to their customers. The difference is: a. There are limitations on the number of trasactions that can be performed in a savings account on a per month basis whereas for checking accounts there are no limitations b. The interest rate offered by banks on savings account is much higher than what is offered on checking accounts because banks offer almost no interest in them


It's useful to save money so that when you need to buy something or pay a bill, you will have the money to do so. Savings accounts as compared to checking accounts will normally pay a higher interest rate (although at the moment, in Feb. 2013, interest rates are quite low).
