High-Yield Checking Accounts Help You Save, not Lose Money Each Month

Posted on Monday, Jun 3, 2013

Any long-term personal financial plans begin with one basic goal: to save, not lose, money each month. When your bottom line consistently improves over time, even if it's just by a few dollars, you make progress toward financial independence.

At Gulf Winds, our goal is to help you reach your goals, and we've developed a high-yield checking account that is designed to do just that. We're pleased to introduce our high-yield checking account to our new members in Tallahassee, and we hope you'll find it as useful as our existing members in Pensacola and other locations do.

Let's take a look at our high-yield checking account so you can see how it can help you to save money each month.

No Minimum Balance. We know that your checking account balance fluctuates each month as your income is deposited and your bills are paid, so we don't require our members to keep a minimum balance on deposit.
No Monthly Service Fee. More and more banks are charging monthly service fees on their checking accounts, and this is a problem. Monthly service fees keep you from achieving your financial goals because you lose money each month to the account that should be helping you. We don't charge monthly service fees on our high-yield checking account.
Dividends. This account really stands apart from other checking accounts available in the Tallahassee market. Here, you receive monthly dividends when you have at least one direct deposit or automatic payment per cycle, 12 debit card purchases per cycle, and you receive your monthly statements electronically. When you consider that you don't pay a monthly service fee and you earn monthly dividends, you can see how this checking account really helps you to get ahead and save money.
Extra Benefits. Our high-yield checking members enjoy free Visa debit cards, free online banking with bill pay, free e-statements with check images, free 24-hour phone banking, free overdraft protections, and access to more than 40 surcharge-free ATMs. In addition, we refund ATM fees nationwide, up to $15 per cycle.

As you can see, our high-yield checking account helps members save, not lose, money each and every month. It's just the account you need to help you reach your financial goals. Come on in to one of our Tallahassee branches today to open your account.

Re: High-Yield Checking
Can may current checking account be converted to high-yield without changing the account number?
