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 often.
