Interest You Earn
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Banks charge you interest on your loan. But do you know they also PAY you interest? When you put money into a bank account, you can earn interest on it. Your money grows!
 
2     There are several ways to earn interest at a bank. First, there is a checking account. Some banks have special checking accounts that earn interest. The percentage is usually very low, but every little bit helps.
 
3     You need to be careful, though. Usually the interest on a checking account is paid on the average balance during the month. You may have to keep a certain amount in the account in order to earn the interest. If your balance falls below that amount, you will not be paid. You might also have to pay high fees to keep the account active. Always make sure you understand the rules before opening this kind of checking account.
