Generally, banks offer interest on savings and certificates of deposit (CDs) as an incentive for people to deposit money in the bank. And while it may seem unlikely that banks would offer you interest on checking accounts, where your balance can fluctuate daily, some banks actually do offer interest checking accounts.

The trick for you is to find a bank that pays interest on checking accounts in a way that meets your needs but doesn't have a long list of fees, requirements and restrictions that keep you from getting what you need out of the account.Online banks including Ally Bank generally offer more competitive interest rates than their traditional brick-and-mortar counterparts.
