While a checking account from BlueVine or NBKC will cost the same, BlueVine has the better business checking account overall.
Why? Interest. BlueVine checking earns it, while NBKC business checking doesn’t.
In fact, your BlueVine business checking account will earn 1% interest on your account balance (up to $100,000). There’s no minimum balance to start earning, either.
And yes, we know that 1% will hardly make or break your business. But if you can get more money for simply keeping money in a bank account, wouldn’t you like to?
Besides, BlueVine business checking has other nice perks, like the two free checkbooks BlueVine throws in with your account. Plus, BlueVine makes it really easy to deposit cash into your online banking account―just visit a Green Dot location. (You may be able to make a cash deposit at NBKC via a MoneyPass ATM, but we’ve found Green Dot locations are more likely to be in most neighborhoods.)
Put simply, if you just need a free business checking account, BlueVine is the way to go.
But if you need any other kind of business account―or a personal bank account―then you need to look at NBKC.
