A savings account that works in tandem with checking

Linking your Tandem Savings and your Tandem Checking accounts means that your ATM refunds and the interest from your Tandem Checking account are automatically deposited into your Tandem Savings account, making it even easier to save.

Here are all the great benefits you get with Tandem Checking and Savings:

  • Massive interest in cash - Tandem checking earns 1.75% APY* on balances up to $10,000, and 0.10% APY on balances over $10,000.
  • Tandem Savings earns 0.50% APY on balances up to $5,000 and 0.10% APY on balances over $5,000.
  • Free – no monthly fees 
  • No minimum balance – you can choose how much to keep in your account and still earn interest
  • Free VISA Debit Card
  • Nationwide ATM fee refunds* - so you can afford to use ATMs that are convenient for you
  • Free Online Banking and Bill Payer

To earn the highest rate of interest possible, simply:

  • Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and clear per month
  • Have one direct deposit or one ACH automatic deposit post and clear
  • Receive monthly e-statements

There's no penalty if you don't qualify in a given month. You'll still have a free account that earns a base rate of interest, and you can get back to earning high interest and receiving ATM fee refunds as soon as you qualify again.
