Depends. I have a checking account that gets something like half a percent interest. Steam is giving you zero interest.
Seriously? What bank.
wells fargo and bank of america still does the interest gain on certain types of checking accounts. although you have to maintain a minimum balance. wells fargo has a high minimum requirement. 30k combined checking and savings to be exact. bank of america only requires 10k. but i think bofa stopped offering their prima accounts to new members after obama's banking reform became law. ING direct offers interest for their online checking account. but they dont have the convenience of having a local branch you can walk into. everything is done online or over the phone.
