*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. APY is accurate as of 3.4.19. Premium Purple Checking is a tiered-rate account. Rates: $10,000 - $24,999.99 – 0.50%APR/0.50% APY; $25,000 and above Rate – 1.05% APR/1.05%APY. APY is calculated as an average daily balance throughout the statement cycle, not on account balance at the end of the statement period. Once a particular balance range is met, the dividend rate and APY for that range will apply to the full balance of your account. Rates are variable and may change after account is opened. A minimum of $10,000 average daily balance is required to earn disclosed APY. Dividends post on the last day of the month. A minimum deposit of $2,500 is required to avoid $10 monthly service fee. Fees may reduce earnings, please see our fee schedule.
