Apple Bank Savings Account Rates

Apple Bank—not to be confused with Apple the lifestyle technology company—offers a variety of savings accounts so that each customer can find one that meets their needs.

Each account differs when it comes to its minimum balance requirements, interest rates, and the amount of money you’ll need to earn interest. Unlike many banks, Apple Bank also offers a savings account specifically designed for kids to help them earn money on their savings.

Account Name APY Minimum Deposit Monthly Fee
Premium Savings 0.00%–1.65% $5,000 $8
Simple Savings 3.50%–4.15% None None
Super Savings 0.00%–0.25% $5,000 $8

Apple Bank Savings Accounts: Key Features

Premium Savings Key Features
APY Range 0%–1.65%
Minimum Deposit $5,000
Minimum Balance to Earn Interest $5,000
Monthly Service Fee $8
Minimum Balance to Avoid Fee $5,000

Apple Bank’s Premium Savings only allows you to start earning interest once you have $5,000 in your account (which is also the minimum amount required to open an account and to avoid the monthly fee). With an annual percentage yield (APY) of 1.65%, the Premium Savings rate is lower than many of the top high-yield savings accounts on the market.

Simple Savings Key Features
APY Range 3.50%–4.15%
Minimum Deposit None
Minimum Balance to Earn Interest $1
Monthly Service Fee None
Minimum Balance to Avoid Fee None

Unlike most of Apple Bank’s savings accounts, the Simple Savings account doesn’t have a minimum deposit requirement or a monthly maintenance fee. You can also start earning interest with just $1 in your account, unlike some of the bank’s other accounts that require thousands of dollars before you can earn.?

Additionally, the Simple Savings account has the highest APY of any account other than the Youth Savings. You’ll also get an Apple Bank Visa debit card to go with your account, even if you don’t have a linked checking account.

Super Savings Key Features
APY Range 0.00%–0.25%
Minimum Deposit $5,000
Minimum Balance to Earn Interest $5,000
Monthly Service Fee $8
Minimum Balance to Avoid Fee $5,000

The Super Savings account is similar to the Premium Savings in almost every way, including its $5,000 minimum deposit, minimum to earn interest, and minimum to avoid the monthly fee. The major difference between these accounts is that while the Premium Savings account offers 1.65% APY, this Super Savings account only offers 0.25%.

Youth Savings Key Features
APY Range 2.87%–5.00%
Minimum Deposit $1
Minimum Balance to Earn Interest $1.01
Monthly Service Fee None
Minimum Balance to Avoid Fee None

Apple Bank’s Youth Savings account is unique because it’s only available for account holders ages 6 through 17. There’s only a $1 minimum to open the account and $1.01 to earn interest, and there’s no minimum fee on the account.?

This account offers the highest APY of any Apple Bank Savings account. However, you’ll only earn the maximum APY on the first $10,000 in your account. Balances above $10,000 and up to $20,000 earn 2.87% APY. Balances above $20,000 do not earn interest. And for kids ages 14 through 17, the account can be accompanied by an Apple Bank Visa debit card.

BONUS Savings Key Features
APY Range 0.00%–0.05%
Minimum Deposit $2,500
Minimum Balance to Earn Interest $2,500
Monthly Service Fee $10
Minimum Balance to Avoid Fee $2,500

The BONUS Savings account is Apple Bank’s account with the lowest APY. You won’t earn interest on your account until you have a balance of $2,500, and once you do, you’ll only earn 0.05%. You’ll also need $2,500 to open your account and a running balance of $2,500 to avoid the $10 monthly maintenance fee.
