On the day your MyChoice Money Market is opened and on the last day of each monthly interest payment cycle, we will determine whether your account will receive the Regular Interest Rate or the Premium Interest Rate (both of which may change daily) during the upcoming monthly interest payment cycle. To qualify for the Premium Interest Rate, you must (1) have a MyChoice Premium Checking or Power Checking and (2) have made three or more qualifying customer-initiated transactions in that checking account during that account's most recently completed monthly service charge cycle. Qualifying customer-initiated transactions include deposits, withdrawals, M&T Bill Pay transactions, automatic payments, debit card purchases and payments and direct deposits. Transfers and payments to other accounts at M&T Bank (including loans and lines of credit) are excluded. Reversals of transactions will be netted against the qualifying transactions. Transactions cannot be aggregated across multiple checking accounts for purposes of meeting this requirement. (Note: If your MyChoice Premium Checking has been open for less than one monthly service charge cycle on any day we determine the applicable interest rate, your MyChoice Money Market Account will receive the Premium Interest Rate during the upcoming monthly interest payment cycle.)
No monthly maintenance charge for MyChoice Premium Checking or Power Checking customer OR when you keep a minimum daily balance of $2,500. Regardless of whether a monthly maintenance charge applies, M&T savings accounts are subject to transaction and service fees, including overdraft fees, as noted in the Specific Features and Terms for each account and, also the Additional Fees and Fees for Use of Electronic Banking Card for Consumer Savings Accounts, which are available on request at any M&T banking office or through M&T's Contact Center.
