Moving your money to an interest-bearing checking account can be a smart financial choice, and if you choose the right bank, it can also be easy. Today's banking environment is far different from the one that existed just a few years ago, when opening a checking account almost always meant walking into a bank and waiting to sit down with a bank employee to fill out paperwork.

An interest checking account can now be set up at an online bank from your own computer at home—at any time that's convenient for you. At Ally Bank, you'll simply need the name, contact information, date of birth and tax identification number of each account holder. After enrolling, payroll checks and other deposits usually can be set up for electronic deposit.

The Ally Bank Interest Checking Account has no monthly maintenance fees, no minimum balance to open, a free Debit MasterCard®, free standard checks and unlimited check writing, free bill pay services, and no ATM fees from Ally Bank. We will even reimburse ATM fees other banks charge nationwide.
