EverBank is now offering a 6 month bonus rate of 1.25% APY for first time account holders of their checking accounts. The high rate is a large jump up from the bank’s previous rate of 1.05% APY. The 1.25% APY rate is fixed for the first six months of new account holders, so there should be no fear of changing rates if this applies to you. The EverBank savings account requires a minimum initial deposit of $1500 with no minimum balance requirement to earn interest and no monthly fee.
