*Annual Percentage Yield (APY), Rate Tiers and Qualifications for APY: Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is accurate as of 4/9/2012. Rates, rate tiers and qualifications are subject to change without notice after the account is opened. Minimum to open account is $100.00. Fees may reduce earnings. Rate tiers are as follows: 2.01% APY applies to balances of $0.01 - $15,000.00 and 0.51% APY applies to balances over $15,000.00 if all qualifications are met each monthly qualification cycle. 0.10% APY applies to all balances if qualifications are not met. All balances will earn 0.51% APY to 2.01% APY as long as all qualifications are met. Qualifying transactions must post and clear the account during the monthly qualification cycle. Qualifying transactions may take more than one business day to post and clear the account from the transaction date. Lost, damaged, expired or stolen check cards do not alleviate the requirements for qualification for any qualification cycle.
ATM fees will be refunded up to $50 on the last day of the cycle only when qualifications are met.
This account is limited to personal or sole-proprietorships: only two per customer and/or household. Additionally, the account is limited to Oklahoma residents. This account may be offered to Bank2 loan customers.
- Qualification Cycle
**Qualification Cycle (QCycle) – Usually, each Great Rate account QCycle begins on the 6th day of the month (the "First day") and ends the 5th day of each month (the "Last day"); except in the event the First day or Last day or both fall(s) on a weekend or holiday(s), adjustment(s) will be made by moving such day "back" to the most immediate preceding business day such that neither day falls on a weekend or holiday and the Last day of the QCycle and First day of the next QCycle remain consecutive business days (e.g. Last day is the 5th and First day of the next is the 6th) of the same month. Any exceptions to this will be posted on the Bank's website or provided in customer e-statement(s) prior to being effective.
