Wyoming Deal On Savings, Checking

Trona Valley Community Credit Union pays 3% on rewards checking.Trona Valley Community Federal Credit Union offers an impressive rate on rewards checking, which then can be combined with a savings account that beats the top national offer.

A My Generation Checking account pays 3.00% APY on balances up to $15,000. Anything above that amount earns 0.75% APY.

Pair that up with a My Generation Savings account, and you’ll earn 1.50% APY on savings balances up to $15,000, and 0.75% APY on balances exceeding that amount.

The savings account tops the best nationally available deal of 1.30% APY from UFB Direct (www.ufbdirect.com).

UFB Direct’s Airline Rewards Savings Account also throws in free airline miles. The account requires a $100 minimum deposit to open, and UFB Direct is a division of Bank of Internet USA, based in San Diego.

While the My Generation Checking rate may not beat the 4.09% APY offered by Consumers Credit Union (www.myconsumers.org) of Waukegan, Ill., on balances up to $10,000, it’s still far above what the vast majority of banks and credit unions are paying.

Like a typical rewards checking account, to get the top rate at Trona Valley you need to make at least 10 debit card purchases in a month; have one direct deposit, automatic debit or online bill payment per month; and sign up for eStatements.

Fail to meet those requirements and you’ll earn 0.05% APY.

If you meet those requirements, you’ll also earn 1.50% APY on your savings account.

Trona Valley Community Federal Credit Union membership is open to anyone who lives, works or attends school in the Wyoming counties of Sweetwater, Sublette, Lincoln and Uinta.

You can apply for an account online (www.tronavalley.com), but have to complete the process by stopping by one of the three branches. Trona Valley’s main office is in Green River.

You can compare these rates to the best money market and savings account rates from scores of banks in our database.
