The high-yield account takes home the 2023 award for Best Overall Checking Account.

RICHMOND, V.a. — One of Primis Bank’s online-only accounts has been named the 2023 Best Overall Checking Account by WalletHub. Primis Premium Checking, which carries one of the nation’s highest annual yields in addition to other , takes home the award after gaining lots of attention since releasing in January.

WalletHub is a personal finance company dedicated to helping consumers live their best lives financially with free credit reports, financial tools, and product reviews and recommendations. Their annual review for their awards pulls in experts in all fields to determine the best products and services for their users.

After a rigorous review process, the WalletHub team thought that Primis Premium is “one of the best checking accounts on the market today” even for interest-bearing accounts, which historically come with high qualifiers and additional fees to get the advertised return.

*The nitty gritty: APY = Annual Percentage Yield. $1.00 minimum opening deposit required and no minimum amount required to obtain APY. Rates are applicable for accounts opened on 10/3/2023 and forward. Fees could reduce earnings. Rates may change after the account is opened.
