What is the difference between an Online Savings Account and Money Market Account?
The main difference is in how you access your money. A money market account gives you more access because you can be issued a Visa® Debit Card and checks for these accounts. An online savings account does not support the use of checks and does not come with a debit card.
It's important to note that there are Federal limits on transactions from U.S. savings and money market accounts.
You can always call us and request a check made out to you. You can also make unlimited deposits and ATM withdrawals. But, Federal law limits other electronic, telephone and check transactions to a total of 6 per statement cycle. These limited transactions can be to other accounts or to a third party. If you go over the limit we charge $10 per transaction.Was this helpful?
What's the difference between an Interest Checking Account and a Money Market Account?
Both accounts give you easy access to your money and a competitive interest rate on your balance.
Federal regulations limit the number of transactions (transfers or withdrawals) you can make from a Money Market Account to just six per monthly statement period. While you will receive checks and a debit card for those transactions, you won't have access to the free online bill pay service that comes with an Interest Checking Account. Remember, deposits are always unlimited and don't count towards your six transaction limit.
With our Interest Checking Account, there's no limit on the number of transactions you can make. You'll also get the convenience of our online bill pay service for free. And as your checking balance grows, you could earn a higher interest rate.Was this helpful?
