Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great account features and outstanding customer service I've had a Schwab High Yield Investor Checking account for nearly 7 years and have never been more satisfied with a bank. With Schwab Bank, every ATM worldwide is yours to use, since you're reimbursed for all ATM fees at the end of the month. They also have mobile check deposit for the occasional check you receive, with most deposits processed within an hour or two. You'll get free ACH transfers to move money between your Schwab account and your outside accounts, and no monthly service fees or minimum balance requirements. Their telephone customer service is unparalleled, with always a friendly voice in Indianapolis or Phoenix. There are only two downsides. First, being an online bank (with just one branch in Reno, NV) you're unable to deposit any cash; but I have a local, no-frills savings account where I deposit cash and periodically transfer into my Schwab account. The interest rate is on-par with other major bank checking accounts, but you can do better for your savings by investing or depositing in an online savings account, depending on your risk tolerance.
