Looking for a place to park short term $?

CDs paying 2+%, checking accounts paying over 4%~why not?

In an effort to attract and retain new customers, some banks are also offering interest-paying checking accounts that can pay as much as 4.51% APY. (See table for details.) But these accounts come with multiple strings attached, from establishing direct deposit and online bill-pay to making at least 10 or 15 debit-card purchases a month. “The difference between using your debit card nine and 10 times in a month is a difference of earning 0.25% and 4%,” McBride says. So before you jump ship, make sure these checking accounts are a good fit for your financial lifestyle.
