I am used to bank tiering upwards - the more money you put in, the higher the interest rate. I am not sure I understand the motivation in the downward tiering. In essence they are saying we want your first 35k cash more than most banks, but don't want the rest of your cash....there must be a catch that makes this bank not so attractive....

I guess they just can't afford to pay high interest rates on deposits above 35K.
