Thanks for the links! I just applied for an account. Could you please tell us if the account can be closed free of fees and charges after 90 days once the bonus is credited?

I got the following reply from MetLife Bank customer service.
QUOTE

Thank you for writing to MetLife Bank Online and allowing me to be of
assistance. 

There are no fees for closing a money market account. The only fee that
may be charged is if the account drops below $1,500 and has not been
closed by calling a banking advisor. A $15 fee would be charged as long
as the account is below this minimum.


I would recommend anybody to double-check this info just to make sure that the MetLife rep knew what he was talking about.

It's best to call a bank representative to close your account and more importantly have them mail you a czech. You have the option of writing a czech to yourself and depositing it in another account. This is NOT a good option since you could be hit with a fee. ($15 for MetLife Bank) When you wrote yourself a czech, you might not factor in "accrued" interest, which would not be posted to your account until later. With the "accrued" interest, your account would NOT be zero and would be below their minimum balance requirement.

I was hit with MetLife's $15 fee. Luckily they reversed the fee after my repeated complaints.

So, never write yourself a czech to close an account unless you're absolutely positively certain that you won't incur a fee.

"Annual Percentage Yields (APYs) are effective 9/07/05, and are variable and subject to change. Balances up to $4,999 earn 1.10% APY; $5,000+ earn 3.50% APY. Fees may reduce earnings."

Does this mean that a deposit of $6,000 would only earn 3.5% on $1,000 and the rest only 1.10%? Or does the whole $6,000 earn the higher rate, and the rate only drops to 1.1% when the balance falls below $5,000?
