Earn more over time with a Heritage High-Yield Checking™ account
Relax. High-Yield Checking Makes Your Money Do The Work.
Smart, financially savvy people make a habit of getting more from what they have. There are many approaches to making the most of your money, including finding ways to cut spending. Making the monthly grocery budget stretch further, choosing a less expensive phone plan, and cutting out subscriptions that rarely get used are smart ways to spend less and do more with your money.
People with high-yield checking accounts have found they can earn back the equivalent of some monthly expenses without cutting spending at all. Interest-bearing checking goes beyond traditional saving methods. For some, it is the easiest way to maximize their budget and make their money grow.
Members Earn WAY Above the National Average
According to a 2022 report, interest-bearing checking accounts at banks across the U.S. earn an average of 0.04% APY1. You don't need to settle for a checking account that pays next to nothing. At Credit Union West, members with a Heritage High-Yield Checking™ earn significantly more than the national average at an astounding 4.07% APY!2
Earning a high dividend rate couldn't be easier. Get rewarded each month for doing simple things you might already do like choosing paperless statements or swiping your debit card at the checkout. To qualify for the Heritage High-Yield Checking higher dividend rate, simply:
- Have at least 15 point-of-sale (POS) transactions post and settle to your account each cycle
- Have at least one direct deposit or ACH post and settle to your account each cycle
- Enrolled in eStatements3
That's it! Earnings are paid out monthly and you can keep track of your progress in Mobile and Online banking. Just look for "Checking Qualifications" in the Accounts drop down menu.
If you don't qualify for the month, don't worry! You'll still earn the base dividend rate and you can try for the higher dividend rate again next month. Plus, your Heritage High-Yield Checking account is always free with no monthly maintenance or minimum balance fees.4 It's free checking that lets you earn more without doing more. So relax, sit back, and let your money do the work for you.
