Checking
Scottrade Bank keeps things simple with two checking accounts: Scottrade Bank No-Interest Checking and Scottrade Bank Interest Checking.

Scottrade Bank No-Interest Checking has a $100 minimum opening deposit but no minimum balance. It doesn’t earn interest, but it doesn’t charge a monthly fee, and it pays customers reimbursements on ATM surcharges. The account includes online Bill Pay and an ATM/Debit card.

Scottrade Bank Interest Checking still doesn’t charge a monthly fee but pays a 0.01% APY on accounts with a balance of $500 and more. It also provides ATM surcharge reimbursements and Online Bill Pay.

Savings
Scottrade Bank has one savings account, the appropriately named Scottrade Bank Savings Account. Its main features are a low minimum opening deposit and minimum daily balance of $100. It doesn’t have a monthly fee but it pays interest. The interest rates are tiered based on balance and range from 0.03% to 0.33%. Accounts with $100 to $10,000 earn 0.03%, $10,000 to $25,000 receive 0.07% APY. The highest rate is for balances over $1 million.
