Checking from Charles Schwab Bank


High Yield Investor Checking is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1375.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ATM and Beginner Investor I have had this account for nearly 8 years and while I do keep most of my money with competitors since it is in my personal interest to do so, I like my Schwab account for its global ATM reimbursements. What I really like about the High Yield Investor Checking is that it provided me a way to open a brokerage account without the minimums required to open the account directly. Schwab is one of the best companies I have experienced for index mutual funds because mutual funds can be opened with a $100 minimum, no transaction fees, and funded with $1 thereafter. Sure the fees are a little higher than with ETFs or funds from competing companies, but we are talking something that won't even register to the beginning investor and the potential yields far outweigh the pennies of fees. One things I will caution people about is that Schwab does do a hard credit inquiry when opening the account, so best to open it after applying for any loans. I haven't dealt with customer service much, but when I have they have been very professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schwab is the best I travel internationally a lot and whenever I have a problem with a broken ATM or anything at all, Schwab associates have been able to take my calls 24/7 and they ALWAYS fix my problem, no matter what it is. Also the reimbursement of ATM fees is the best thing ever. I can't say enough good things!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Epic account! Great secondary bank, but the layout is not as good as you would think and it takes longer for debit transactions to deduct from account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use. I use the checking and savings accounts to hold cash from my IRA until I want to use it. It is so easy to transfer the funds within the accounts.
