BMO Harris 2.35% Money Market Account Review

BMO Harris 2.35% Money Market Account Review

BMO Harris Bank is offering a nice 2.35% APY on nationwide accounts.

To qualify for this account, you need to have a minimum of $5,000 in your account to get the high interest ate, but you can earn with as low as $1 in your account at a tiered rate.

Other perks include no max, no monthly fees, and ATM access nationwide. Pretty decent account if I say so myself, given that the 2.35% only requires a small deposit of $5K to qualify for the rate.

For high savers, you can really hit some nice interest payments with no maximum. Even though FDIC only covers up to $250K, amounts beyond that are still earning interest at the 2.35% rate.
