The interest rate isn't your only reward

While high-yield interest rates can help you earn money, some rewards checking programs help you save, too.

McBride says many high-yield checking accounts offer reimbursements for ATM fees. For customers who are cash crazy, these reimbursements can add up to additional savings.

Some banks reimburse all ATM fees for their high-yield checking account holders, but others may set a limit on the monthly amount they are willing to cover.

In some programs, customers can save on more than just ATM fees. For example, Costlow says ViewPoint Bank's rewards checking program includes incentives such as loan discounts and a free online budgeting tool.
