Earn attractive dividends by taking a few simple steps

High-Rate VIP Checking comes with no monthly fees and tons of money-making potential. Here's how to cash in on some of the highest dividend rates around: 1) Enroll in eStatements. 2) Arrange for direct deposit of at least a $500 a month. 3) Make 12 (Gold tier) or 15 (Platinum tier) Visa debit card purchases per month. And if you don't meet those standards? It's OK. Try again next month - and in the meantime enjoy a wealth of first-rate money management tools.
