If you’ve heard an advertisement for a "high performance money market account" or something similarly named, you may be wondering just what that is and if it’s a good deal for you.

What some banks call a "high performance money market account" is really just a money market account that may or may not have a special rate—and that special rate may or may not be a temporary or introductory rate. Plus, there may be other strings attached—a large minimum opening deposit, a high minimum monthly balance requirement, monthly maintenance fees, and so on. In short, it pays to read the fine print. Names like "high performance," "silver savings," and the like are usually just marketing. You need to do a little research to determine whether the account it a good fit for your needs.
