BMO Harris Bank Review: Statement Savings

One of the reasons BMO Harris was selected as one of the top banking institutions is because of their broad range of financial products for all needs. For those customers just starting to save, there is the Statement Savings account.

Statement Savings is flexible, offers easy access to money, and also accrues interest.

A low minimum amount is required to open this account, and it can be linked with Auto Save to make it easier to start effortlessly saving more money. Interest rates are variable, so participants earn more over time to reach their savings and financial goals, and you can access your cash whenever you need it.

The Statement Savings account can also be linked to a personal checking account, which helps customers avoid overdraft fees if they utilize the Overdraft Funding service from BMO Harris.
