Deposit accounts that pay primo interest rates aren’t always easy to come by.

But if you can’t get a high yield from a checking or savings account, you could earn an extra $200 or $300 through a sign-up bonus.

Here are today’s best bank account bonuses. Compare these offers along with CDs that pay more interest.
