5Star Bank offers a variety of accounts. They offer personal deposit and business accounts. These include:
5Star Bank has low amounts required to open their accounts. The E-Checking requires $50. The 5Star checking and the basic savings account require $100 to open. Both the money market account and the different CD terms require $1,000 to open.
The 5Star checking account refunds up to five ATM transactions fees per month. You must keep at least $1,000 in the checking account to have ATM transactions refunded. The E-Checking account does not offer ATM reimbursement.
The basic 5Star savings account offers competitive rates. The rates are higher than typical brick-and-mortar rates. This account only requires $100 to open and keep in the account to waive the monthly fee. Any amount in the account earns the competitive rate. These rates are not tiered.
To earn the most competitive rates for the money market account requires an account balance over $1 million. Any balance over $1,000 does earn interest but a lower rate. The rates gradually increase the more money you have in the account.
Most 5Star Bank accounts have monthly maintenance fees. The savings account fee is $2. The money market fee is $5, and the checking account fee is $7. Waive each of these fees by keeping a set amount in the accounts. Those balances range from $100 to $1,000, depending on the account.
5Star has daily limits for your debit card. The limit for point of sale purchases is $1,000 per day. The daily limit for ATM withdrawals is $300.
Accounts through 5Star Bank are not available to open entirely online. To open the accounts, you need to visit a branch location. You may be able to open the accounts through the mail. Contact customer service for more information.
The Radius Hybrid checking account offers competitive interest rates. You earn the competitive interest rate on any balance over $2,500. The savings account offers competitive interest rates as well. You earn higher interest rates on balances over $25,000. The interest rate under $25,000 is still competitive, just a slightly lower rate.
Radius Bank offers a variety of business accounts. Four different checking accounts are available. The accounts vary in benefits. This allows you to find the best fit for your business. A money market account and CDs are available for businesses also.
Most Radius accounts do not have monthly fees. The only account that has a monthly fee is the Essential checking account. That fee is $9 a month. After you make the opening required deposit, there is no required amount to keep in Radius Bank accounts.
The Radius savings account and two checking accounts only require $100 to open. The basic checking account only requires $10 to open. There are three CDs you can open online, the one-year, 18-month, and the three-year. Each of those CDs only require $500 to open. Open different CD term lengths at branch locations. Those CDs require either $500 or $1,000 depending on the term.
At this time, only a few Radius accounts are available to open online. Three Radius checking accounts can be opened online. The Radius High-Yield savings account and CDs can also be opened online. To open a business account, visit their financial center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Only three Radius Bank CD terms are available to open online. The CDs include a 12-month, 18-month, and three-year CD. Each CD only requires $500 to open. The interest rate on the CDs are competitive with other online-only accounts.
Only one savings account is available through Radius Bank. They do not offer a money market account. There is no monthly fee for the savings account. The opening amount required is $100. You can request an ATM card for this savings account. Federal regulations only allow six transactions per statement cycle.
To earn the highest interest rates for the Radius savings account, you must have $25,000 in the account. Any amount over $10 earns interest. Those rates are low; similar to typical bank rates. Having $2,500 in the account will earn much higher rates. Rates for balances over $2,500 are good but still less than the interest you earn if you have over $25,000. To earn interest on your Radius checking account balance, you must have $2,500 in the account. Any amount less does not earn interest.
