1. Unlimited ATM fee rebates apply to cash withdrawals using the Schwab Bank Visa® Platinum check card wherever it is accepted. ATM fee rebates do not apply to any fees other than fees assessed for using an ATM to withdraw cash from your Schwab Bank account. Schwab Bank makes its best effort to identify those ATM fees eligible for rebate, based on information it receives from Visa and ATM operators. In the event that you have not received a rebate for a fee that you believe is eligible, please call a Schwab Bank Client Service Specialist for assistance at 888-403-9000. Schwab Bank reserves the right to modify or discontinue the ATM fee rebate at any time.

MONEY'S SELECTION PROCESS: THE CONTENDERS MONEY looked at the 50 biggest brick-and-mortar banks by consumer deposits and number of branches, plus the 20 biggest online banks by deposits, based on data from financial services consulting firm Novantas. THE CRITERIA -The considerations for checking picks were maintenance fees and ease of waiving them, other charges, restrictions, and perks (like interest or ATM surcharge reimbursements). For savings and CDs, MONEY looked at rates, fees, minimums, and other rules. On all accounts, we discounted intro rates. We also polled banks on mobile-app features and several factors related to convenience. As a tiebreaker, we used branch presence and independent customer-service studies.
The Schwab Bank High Yield Investor Checking Account® is available only as a linked account with a Schwab One® brokerage account. The Schwab One brokerage account has no minimum balance requirements when opened with a linked High Yield Checking account.
