Summary

Looking for a little encouragement to save? Community First can give you a push in the right direction.

Not everyone has the discipline to put money aside for that rainy day but with Community First Bank you are given an incentive to try harder. With just a small monthly deposit and no spending out of your savings, you are rewarded with a bonus interest rate. The higher competitive rate can quickly turn those few dollars deposited each month into enough to buy whatever it is that will make the sun shine on your rainy day.

Pros

  • Incentive to save money
  • No monthly account keeping fee
  • No minimum balance required

Cons

  • Need to meet conditions every month to get bonus interest
