How we help you find a better account
We did the homework to find the best banks for saving money. Here’s the criteria we used to determine our BankMatch℠ partners.
No gimmicks or surprises
With our banks, what you see is what you get. There are no unnecessary obstacles to opening an account or earning a great rate.
- Either no hidden fees or a straightforward ability to avoid them.
- An initial deposit requirement of $2500 or less—in most cases, $0.
- No arbitrary requirements for earning your APY.
Our banks’ APYs have a proven track record of being among the best.
- The 12-week average of each bank’s APY falls close to the average of the top 25 nationally-available rates as surveyed by our rates research team.
- Each bank’s APY has stayed close to the top 25 nationally-available rates consistently since 2019.
Top customer experience
Our banks offer the features you love and security you can count on to deliver the best experience for you.
- Top of the line security features with FDIC insurance and other customer protections
- Native mobile apps with app store ratings of 4.5 stars or higher.
- Modern banking features like live customer support chat, planning and budgeting tools, peer-to-peer money transfers and more.
Monitoring your return
We proactively monitor each bank’s APY to make sure they’re still offering a competitive rate. If there are any changes you should know about, we’ll reach out.
Besides APYs, we’ll review the overall customer experience of each bank on a regular basis. If there’s ever a substantial change, we will let you know.
