You can now join T-Mobile Money, an unique checking account with respectable perks

T-Mobile has officially launched its Money checking account for all US T-Mobile customers, following its soft launch back in November 2018.

On balances up to $3,000, you’ll accrue an attractive 4 percent APY (annual percentage yield), so long as you’re depositing at least $200 into the T-Mobile Money account each month.

There’s also no minimum balance requirement for a Money account and no fee to keep it open.
