Customers with higher account balances are rewarded with interest. If you maintain a $5,000 minimum balance or higher in your $MART Checking with Interest account, you will earn interest on your balance and avoid a $10 monthly fee. This account gives you all the money-saving benefits of our $MART Checking account, plus because this is a tiered account, the higher the balance you carry, once you move up to the next tier, the more interest you will earn.
